Day Two Hundred Forty-One

Thailand TH-65936 received 02-24-2011

Sent by: swimmergirl
From: Thailand
ID number: TH-65936
Notes: Besides sounding like something a kid would say after you ask them to do something, Wat Pho is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok.  It is also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, probably because it has a very large statue of a reclining Buddha inside.  It is one of the oldest wats in Thailand, having been founded in 1781, and also one of the largest.  The Buddha statue is about 50 feet (15 m) high and 141 feet (43 m) long).
