Typhoon Tribute to Taiwan

Typhoon Morakot recently lashed Taiwan with heavy rains and TV reports showed quite extensive damage where some villages were completely buried in mud. For those residing in Hong Kong, donations can be made to your local Red Cross.

The south of Taiwan seems to be quite badly hit. This is a tribute to the victims - to showcase Taiwan's beauty and vibrancy.

Kaohsiung's Liuho Night Market is a full of delicious foods. Street snacking is a very popular Taiwanese past time!



It's not always the fried stuff. You can find fruits ...



... fresh-squeezed juice ...



... something for the sweet tooth ...



... even Hong Kong style curry fish balls.



Kaohsiung is a major Asian port. Its importance has attracted the British, who had set up their consulate on top of a hill overlooking the city and the ocean.







Kaohsiung also has some more historic sites, such as the old railway station.



There are traditional Chinese temples.







There are also stunning modern skyscraper designs.





Taiwan is quite prone to natural disasters. In addition to typhoons during the summer months, earthquakes can strike at any time. Looking at the dense cityscape, earthquakes are a far bigger worry.





However, surrounded by ocean on all sides, there is also quite a lot of natural beauty.



Donations to the American Red Cross :
