People are people the world over.
We started this very cloudy (smoggy) morning with a relatively short ride south of town to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and the Da Ci’en Si Temple and Monastery. A short walk through a park led us to the leaning 210 feet tall pagoda – it has a definite list to the right. It was built in 652 AD by the Emperor to house the sacred Buddhist texts that were brought back from India by the monk, Xuanzang.
