5,000 Miles Away From Home.

In Le Midi, which is a hotel in 溪頭 (shitou = headwaters).  My wife's parents would bring her here to the countryside when she was a young girl.  The family had relatives from this area.  It has now become a bit touristy with Monster Village nearby and some beautiful hiking trails that we won't quite have enough time to enjoy.  The local cuisine is bamboo with some venison and mushrooms thrown in.  Nice.  A group from the Philippines entertained us singing American songs, the first of which is linked below.  Here are some pictures.

Bamboo steamed rice - a local favorite.


Another local dish???

And what the band was singing:

Wow, I really do need to go back to Taiwan to spend more time. I've never even heard of "Monster village". Why is it called that?

Looks like you are having a good tripo. Hope so.
