Asia

To me, Asia implies as much some of my favourite foods as anything else, as I have never travelled there in real life. My daughter, on the other hand, has. So, as I did for Australia, firstly here is what Asia means to me -

And I will put a couple of of my daughters pics of 'real Asia'

My daughter spent time time last summer in Thailand - she has hundreds of beautiful, and/or interesting, pictures - but I thought this one is what many people think of when they think of Thailand -

Such glorious temples.

But one of my favourites of her 'temple' pictures is this one - it shows the feet of the largest reclining Buddha in the world...

To really appreciate the size you just have to look at the man... bottom right!

Oh, darn it, you've just reminded me I had those pictures of the royal Thai temple near me. Oh well. Chinese lanterns were fun too.

That Buddha's feet are just amazing.

Is the food from Coventry? It looks very familiar.
I must admit I do rather like those feet.

And yes - food from Coventry - well spotted!
Wow, it must be impossible to take a shot of the complete Buddha!

Wonderful pictures! (And yes, the FOOD... mmmmmmm....)

She did manage it - the tips of the toes are in the front of shot and the face is so far away you can barely make it out.
Wow!!! Add that to the list of things I wish I could see, but probably will never get the chance...!
Buddha's feet! Thanks for sharing that! We all need a different perspective sometimes. :-)
Buddha's feet!

They are neat, aren't they?
Before I read, I looked at the photos and thought I was seeing duck feet! That's one large statue.

Is that a flatbread in the upper left of the first photo? That isn't something we'd serve with an Asian meal. Our faux prairie-Chinese!

It's a naan - very traditional with Indian food. The near plate is my chicken biryani with my curry sauce on the hotplate along with, I think, someone's tarka dal.
I mistook the near plate to be fried rice, American Chinese-style. If I'd paid more attention to the food in the silver serving dishes, it would have read Indian to me.
I think the lesson here is don't piss of Buddha (luckily hard to do) or he will stomp you but good.
Those feet could certainly do some stomping!
