Lion Head Mountain【獅頭山】
We took the train to Chunan and then took The bus to Lion Head Mountain. First we visited Some relatives who lived nearby. Later we walked Up the connecting stairways to visit each temple. There are lots of Buddist temples built into the Sides and tops of the mountain. In one of the Biggest temples, we saw quite a few pilgrims who Came here directly from the base of the mountain By bus. However, most tourists we saw just like Us came to climb this mountain and take some Pictures of the scenery. By the time we were on Top of the mountain, it was interesting to see that it was very windy on one side of the mountain, but on the other side there was no wind at all; I guessed it would not be that way Everyday. It was about a four hours’ walk for The whole trip. We really had plenty of exercise, And fresh air, too.
A Visit to the National Palace Museum【故宮博物院之遊】
Recently I spent over three hours looking, reading and enjoying the exhibits at the National Palace Museum located in the suburbs. Many local and foreign visitors go there daily to take pictures outside and spend endless hours inside. No cameras are allowed inside, but you can buy you can buy colored slides of the exhibits in the gift shop downstairs. There is a very large collection of beautiful jades. Also, there is an ancient bronze vessel exhibit. Some of the exhibits are changed regularly for special collections such as porcelain and silk paintings. My attention was mainly in the room with the wall-size slide show describing some archeological discoveries from pre-history tine. Also, the oracle bones’ exhibit was very good; there seemed to be an endless amount of rare, beautiful, interesting, and fascinating things.
