The Giant Buddha stared at us!
Though unstable weather made us worry a bit, the group managed to get to Nara a little late due to the previous train accident messing up our train schedule! As usual GTS walked to the Giant Buddha Hall fast and everyone could successfully meet with Him. Some students beautifully went through the Buddha's Nose Hall created in one of the huge columns to be blessed! After saying good-by to Buddha, the group lost a few members though getting re-united at the Kintetsu Nara Train Station! Students made some plans getting together for the first weekend in Kyoto!
