Climbing to Heaven - Shaolin Temple
Posted on April 27 2018
I got to see Bill! Bill is the first Chinese friend in China I ever had. He is such an awesome guy, I'm so happy I got to meet up with him.
Bill took Platinum and I to go see the Shaolin Monks, at the Shaolin Temple... after I got Platinum eating some cicada. Seeing the monks was really cool, I've been there once before but this was really new for Platinum.
We decided to pop another fear bubble for Platinum when we were there too, he is afraid of heights. They have a big gondola ride that goes to the top of a mountain, where you take a path carved into the side, to a suspension bridge.. I had to push him out of his shell a little bit more.. it was too funny! Check out the video.. you'll have a good laugh.
Since we were up at the top of the mountain, I had to take the opportunity to make a birthday video for Gab707 to try to one up the one he did for me. Looks like we will be doing this every year. Check out the video for Gab's birthday.
After the 1.5 hour hike to the top, we realized we only had 2 hours to get to our train to go to Shenzen.. so we ran down the mountain.. needless to say I don't think Platinum is afraid of heights anymore. But we did miss our train.. ended up having to take a 20 hour slow train to Shenzen.. This helped Platinum with his claustrophobia! Too funny! He will be a changed man by the time I'm done with him.
