Today marks the seventh week we have been in Chai-yi County, Taiwan. I decided that I have some pictures that are, as I titled this post, "random," but interesting. So here they are:
|This is a children's version of the Zodiac at a local park. There is one for each animal sign covering this huge open cement area. |
There are also tall statues of dragons and mythical creatures in that park, as in the picture below.
If you or your business owns a truck in Taiwan it looks like the one in the picture below. These are every where on the road. I have not seen a truck that is not blue and does not look like this one. I can only assume it is the only model in the truck market. The only variation on it is that the bed might be covered or it may be a lot older than this one. They've obviously been selling them for a long time.
This picture was taken in the park by the Tropic of Cancer. It was a beautiful day in Chia-yi County!
Happy eating ice cream in the mountains.
(Notice the proverbial scooter and blue truck behind her.)
Here she is again. This time trying on a mountain rice harvesting basket...pick the rice, put it the basket strapped to your head. Happy is adorable and full of personality.
These are the elevated tracks of the HSR, High Speed Rail. It could be anywhere in the USA!
Food, again! These are dumplings. I have mentioned them several times. These were served in a bamboo steamer dish at Koa Chi in Taipei. Don handles them well with his chopsticks.
