Part of the way through the Union St Tunnel is this air shaft which emerges in the back gardens of the houses above and can be seen from the road. The drop from the top of the air shaft to the tunnel floor is about 20 metres (just an estimate) and when looking up you can see the various parts of the rock that they had to dig through to create it.

Buddha Park, also known as Spirit City (Xieng Khuan), is a sculpture park located 25 km southeast of Vientiane, a small city that sits along the Mekong River in Laos. The park was started in 1958 by Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat who was a priest-shaman. The park displays over 200 Buddhist and Hindu statues of deities, along with other beautifully carved strange figures. The main attraction is the giant reclining Buddha resting on the grass (first photo).

Okay, third post for this place but I totally saved the best for last. So Yuki and I have this habit of accidentally climbing mountains and it happened again this time. We continued on the path away from the temple and found the most holy mother of god majestic magical straight from Ghibli mountain forest I’ve ever seen. This is basically exactly how I pictured the scenery in Karasu, right in front of my face on tengu mountain and I was just overwhelmed with a motherfucking downpour of inspiration.
But believe me I am going to write up a storm because of this place. I mean just look at it.
Can’t go to Scotland in my London trip makes me sad ;_;
