This post summarises the places we visited in Taiwan, I do believe that most of the places are captured in images. LOL. Yeah I was having so much fun at times I  may have forgotten to capture the scenes.

The exterior decor of a very interesting restaurant. Apparently the artist-owner collects dumped metal parts and makes pieces of art with them.

The gentleman in this photo should be a tribal chief, if not at least a very senior and respected person of the tribe.

Note the 2 black blocks of tattoos on his face. Those are mark of manhood and hunting prowess in their region.

I feel the need to specially single out this post for him, as he is truly a warrior if you study a bit on their culture.
