Taiwan photos: 41-50

One:

sign

We rented quad bikes to ride along the beach in Nanliao, and this was the sign above one of the bike shops.

Two:

liberty

Did you know there are more than two Statue of Liberty…s… Liberties?… Statues of Liberty… whatever? My favorite temple in Hsinchu has a large area full of random statues.

Three:

buddha

Statues are literally scattered all over the property – big, small, broken, and, well, some are just odd.

Four:

moss

In each of these alcoves is another statue.

Five:

archway

An archway on the grounds

Six:

mossy

Some of the rocks had carvings on them, and because of Taiwan’s climate, most are covered in moss. Photo by Sabrina.

Seven:

lion

Check out the expression on the lion’s face.

Eight:

path

Walking down to the archway from earlier – statues on the left, pagodas and dry water feature on the right.

Nine:

broom

Most temples have these brooms. As an overweight American, I didn’t dare sit on that bench.

Ten:

high

The other side of the arches. I’m telling you, the grounds are sprawling and tiered down along the hill. And every time I visit, there’s something new to see.
