Puppets and lions for sale…

Pigeons. Racing pigeons by setting them free far from home and seeing whose pigeon returns to the coop fastest is a fond pastime in the countryside.

Chickens…

Pottery– there was a make-your-own pottery shop which I found tempting.

Pottery wheels!

A dragon on the Matzu temple, outside of which were many stalls selling things.

a quick shot of the temple interior, which was heavy with incense.

Neither of the horticulture students I was with could identify this flower, which makes me think of Lorca’s handkerchiefs… For some reason I also find myself thinking of all those old movies where ladies wave their handkerchiefs to trains of men moving on to wars. It’s just such a neat shape.

    I know this may seem pretty random, but I can’t help myself from commenting on this page. Anyways, I was interning in Taiwan last summer and I (well, not me… but my co-workers and I) interviewed that pottery dude! His little shop is located behind the temple in this little alley, right? The front looks a bit different to be because I was there during July. Goodness, I’m just ecstatic about seeing that picture =]

    I’d love to read your interview with that potter! Yup, the shop is located in a little alley beyond the temple. I’m glad that you enjoyed the picture– Thanks for taking the time to comment!
