In case you haven’t seen the flood of pictures on Instagram and Facebook, I have compiled everything nicely into a blog post for you:
It has rained everyday in Taiwan since we’ve arrived, but today, in Kenting (a town that looks like Hawaii, but feels like a less-busy Taipei), the sun was shining for us! We visited cliffs that were made of reefs abandoned by the sea and walked down empty temple streets that have now been turned into a youth centre. They were reminders that not all things that get left behind result in ashes and dust.
If Taipei is emerald, then Kenting is indigo – indigo like denim dye. Even if it’s washed and faded by tides of tourists that come to receive but not to give, the city will always, always stay blue.
