Summertime 夏天

Pictures taken in and around Taitung City this summer.  It was HOT.  這些照片都是暑假時在台東拍的.  今年暑假非常的熱.


The river near Tai Yuan, Dong He Township.  A lot of people come here to see monkeys.  東河鄉泰源村的小溪.  很多人來這邊看猴子.


"Little Yellow Mountain" near the Taitung Train Station.  Also known as the Li Ji Badlands.  The Beinan River passes through here.  台東火車站附近的小黃山.  那裡也稱利吉惡地.  卑南溪從其中流過.


Bike trail near the Li Ji Badlands.  I go running here often.  利吉惡地的自行車道.  我常常在這裡跑步.


"Rock Mountain" on the Beinan River.  卑南溪上的石頭山.


Same bike trail pictured above.  This is the section near the Forest Park.  Beinan Mountain is in the foreground.  森林公園附近的自行車道.  最靠近的山坡是卑南山.


Taitung City, from the roof of the building where I live.  從我們大樓屋頂上看到的台東市.


Shan Yuan Beach, looking north. 從杉原海灘往北看.


The mouth of the Beinan River, from the Jung Hua Bridge.  The line of trees to the left is where the bike trail is.  卑南溪的溪口.  這是我在中華橋拍的.  左邊的那排樹就是自行車道的位置.

From East to West and Back Again 從東部到西部再回到東部

In July we drove from Taitung to Ji Loong (Keelung) City.  Here are some of the pictures I took.  七月的時候我們從台東開車到基隆.  這些是我那時候拍的照片.


Most of north Taipei/Ji Loong City looks like this.  Small communities divided by rivers, with a lot of bridges in between.  It's a very hilly area. 大部分台北市北部跟基隆市都是這樣.  小社區被河流貫穿,  中間有橋連接,  而且社區中間有小山坡.


This is in Taipei's New Life Square, not far from the 101.  A lot of good hamburgers in this area!  這是台北101附近的信義商圈.  這地區有很多好吃的漢堡.


The Maokong Gondola, down the street from the Taipei Zoo.  It can be a long wait to get on this thing, but the views are worth it.  If the weather's not good don't bother.  木柵動物園附近的貓空.  有時候貓空纜車要等很久, 但是那裏的風景真的值得你花時間等待纜車.  只是天氣很差的時候就不用去了.


View from the end of the gondola line.  This area is famous for its tea plantations, and is also a popular destination for Taipei cyclists.  到達貓空時的美景.  這個地區的名產是茶葉.  也是很多台北人喜歡騎單車的地方.


Ji Loong (Keelung) City after a rainstorm.  It rains a lot here, but I think it's an interesting area to walk around.  剛下完雨的基隆市.  雖然這裡常下雨, 但是我覺得在這附近散步蠻有趣的.


"Your Success Becomes My Illusion."  Don't ask me what it means.  One of the many quizzical artworks to be found in Taipei's City Art Museum.  我也不懂這個藝術品的意思.  台北的市立美術館有很多這種東西.

Honestly, the National Palace Museum is much better.  實話, 故宮博物院比這裡好太多了.


Ireland's Potatoes, just down the street from the 101.  My daughters love this place.  101大樓附近的愛爾蘭馬鈴薯.  我女兒超愛這個地方.


Exhibit in Taichung's Science Museum.  This is without a doubt the best science museum in Taiwan, and I would rank it #3 overall, behind Taipei's National Palace Museum and Taitung's Prehistory Museum.  Check it out if you're in the area.  台中科學博物館毫無疑問是台灣最棒的科學博物館.  以台灣所有的博物館來說, 只有台北的故宮跟台東的史前博物館比得上它.  如果你在台中的話一定要去.


The famous dinosaurs in Taichung's Science Museum.  A lot of kids just go to this museum for the dinosaurs.  台中科學博物館裡的明星恐龍.  很多小朋友參觀博物館的原因就是為了去看恐龍.


Hot pot restaurant in Kaohsiung.  The hot pots look kind of old and dangerous, right?  I found a back room FULL of unused gas canisters, just a few steps away from the kitchen!  高雄市的火鍋餐廳.  這些火鍋看起來有點危險對不對?  我發現後面的房間充滿了瓦斯罐.  而且就在他們廚房的旁邊。


Seashore in Pingtung, not far from the start of the Southern Cross-Island Highway.  屏東的海景.  靠近南迴公路的起點.
