As the clock winds down on my journey to Taiwan, I keep wondering what else could I do to show some of what I have been witnessing and experiencing these past ten months. As I stroll the area, I see flowers that are so beautiful in color, shape and design as well as fragrant beyond describe. Others enjoy the flora as well because children bring little containers to school filled with flowers to share with each and every teacher. I tell you, the smell must be a bit like heaven, so soft, subtle and lingering. Families meet their children after school and head for a park to allow a bit of rest and play after a hard day of studying. Others take a side trip to the Temple to spend a while praying, burning lucky money and offering gifts of food to one of their eight immortal gods. Because I live in the seat of the Chiayi County Government, there are many official government buildings and parks in the area. Most are lit at night with beautiful markings, lighting displays, monuments and fountains.
