Day 9 – June 11, 2012

12 Jun

Kayla and I woke up late – about an hour late – and did not get to eat breakfast!  We had to go onto the bus for Kamakura right away when we got done getting ready.  We took our breakfast of champions with us – Cheez-It and Beef Jerky.  When we got on the bus, we ate our breakfast and drove for two hours to get to Kamakura.  When we got to Kamakura, we first saw a Temple that had a Buddha with eleven heads.  After, we ate lunch.  After lunch, we saw the big Buddha.  For 20 yen, we got to go inside of Buddha.  Inside of Buddha was so awesome!!  At the end of the day, we had free time to go to the local shops along the street way.  On our way to the street with all the shops, we saw these men that were pulling a buggy behind them with people on it, such as how the carriages in downtown St. Louis are, except with men pulling the buggy instead of horses.  After our free time, we got back onto the bus to go back to the hotel.  Our day was exhausting, so we got a take-out dinner to eat in our hotel room.

This is the Big Buddha that we saw at the Temple in Kamakura.

This is a picture of the strong man we saw pulling the buggy behind him with people on it around the city.
