Travel photo of the day- A statue of Ganesh in southern Yunnan province of China. I rode a bicycle out of Jinhong — which sits near the borders of Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar — out into the countryside. I came upon a broken down and abandon temple complex that had many different motifs, statues, and fixtures from various Asian faiths. Next to the Ganesh statue was a Buddhist stupa, and the entire complex went like this. I tried to find someone who knew anything about it, but being out in the jungle on an obscure road, I did not meet anyone who seemed to know much or care. Read more travelogue entries from China.
