what's right as rain to one person could be left as rain to another

Last Friday we left Betsy & Aaron to rest at home while the 3 original Whittakers headed for Haw Par Villa, a tourist attraction of statues of Chinese mythology & an apparently horrifying display of the 10 Courts of Hell according to Chinese belief.

This was easily the funniest place I've ever been. Intriguing as well. I mean, check out this guy's face...
It rained nearly the whole time we were there, which merely added to the bizarrity of the place.
Yes, that's my brother, a man with a rooster head & a woman with a chicken head. Don't ask for an explanation. We have no idea.
Nor do we understand why they had a Statue of Liberty next to one of their many pagodas. Again, no explanation was given to us. It was merely there. A reminder that we weren't in Kansas anymore.
Sumo wrestling is fun.

This may be hard to read, but if you click on the picture it should expand so that you can...
Outside the Ten Courts of Hell display
Scary. What will I see?

We made it out okay. Mama was waiting with Pedro the Dragon (I just named him that now, it's not his actual name).
