Piece of Peace
Or Lego Wonderland. Your choice. G and I came across it when we went to Shibuya on a whim. (For any who know the place, you're probably thinking "why would you go there with a small child on a whim? And you're right. It's a crazy, busy place, but not at 10 am in the morning. (It's where Lost in Translation is filmed)) We came back with camera and big sis the day before the exhibition closed. I took a lot of boring closeups of the roofs so that Jesse can study up for his next Lego sculpture. When I first met him, he was putting the finishing touches on a Japanese castle he'd been working on. I decided not to be alarmed. If you're dying to make your own, I can forward you the pictures.
The folks at Lego had an exhibition of famous places made into Legos. My favorite part was the Lego table they had set up in the basement. My kids played for almost an hour before we had to go home. So here are a few of my other favorites.
Mont Saint Michel and Bay in France. It's the first time I've ever seen something in Legos and thought "Hey, I think I'd like to go there. "
A temple in Okinawa. I don't think we've been there, but it's pretty cool looking. And the Taj Mahal. You can click to see close up. The details are fun.
