Another very exciting day out this time to visit some not so well known things, once again our taxi came to pick us up at 10:00am and we were off straight away. First stop the Grottos - they are caves and at this particular place are filled with big Buddha sculptures and there are 39 caves with carvings, sculptures and temples. They were built over 1500 years ago. Each cave has about four big sculptures and lots of little ones surrounding them. When we went there it was freezing cold and pouring down rain so we all had coats on and had borrowed umbrellas from our driver. There was also a big track leading up to them which was dirt so it was just a big muddy slosh and all our new shoes got dirty. There was also puddles everywhere and I fell in one of them on the way back to the car. All in all though they were truly amazing things. When we were back in the car we started driving to the suspended (anging) temple it - was built 1400 years ago and somehow it still stands. It was a little scary to climb up as it was only held in place by some shabby old bits of wood balancing on a clifface but even so we climbed up it until we reached the top and then we climbed around inside it. The rain had stopped by know but it was still very cold outside and was not the perfect day to be sightseeing at all but we all enjoyed it a lot.
