On our second full day in Taiwan, we had a wonderful family day to the outskirts of Miaoli. We visited an old bridge and train track that was damaged by an earthquake in 1935. It is called the Long Sheng Bridge.
This is Aaron’s “It’s VERY hot” face.
“But we are on vacation, so it’s all good.”
We had lunch at a neat restaurant in the woods. It was a vegetarian hot pot meal with many unique dishes.
If you look closely, I really felt like I was eating succulents right here. Whatever they were, they were very cool and refreshing.
My cousin has a polaroid camera. Those are so fun!
My uncle at lunch. Does this look familiar, Yung? 😉
We finished the day by bringing Aaron to get his hair cut. We walked into the salon, and you have to go to this automated computer screen to select what you want. The only options were haircut and hair cut/color. Then you pay and get a ticket to wait in line until they call your number. The haircut took about 7 minutes, and cost US$3. They used a vacuum to clean the hair from his neck and shoulders. It was very efficient, and of course, very affordable.
Next up: Jiufen; and the day that we stayed up 21 hours.
