With aunt and uncle. In the background is a special wood that is a famous export of Taiwan.
For my second visit to Taiwan, I had twice the amount of time. However, with family on both sides to visit, we also had twice the amount of people to visit!

I was able to visit several new places, including Yilan,TaipingMountain, and the outskirts of Kaoshun.

While I still felt like I was back in the motherland, my experience this time was much more recreational. This means more food, more sightseeing, and more night markets!

Highlights include a restaurant inTainandedicated to making my favorite dish – seafood porridge.



I want to thank all our family who hosted us, we are truly thankful and can’t wait to see you again!

Taiwan is famous for its night markets! We went to one in almost every city.

It is tradition to give "hon bao" (red envelopes with cash) to family members. Grandma looks pleased!

Taiwan has many Daoist temples. The idols are particularly interesting, with long beards and dark skin.
