Taiwan: 淡水 Danshui Sunset
Just sharing a picture. Danshui sunset, taken on the iPhone, as-is with no editing.
The northern town of 淡水 Danshui or Tam Shui was not originally in my itinerary. I had seen some mediocre reviews and photos of the place, and thought I'd give it a miss. But as luck would have it, a friend of our travel buddy brought us there, and we ended up enjoying the coastal charm and old street delights.
Jay Chou has a song "Tam Shui Seaside". He also studied at Tam Kang Senior High School there and later used it as a venue for his movie Secret. Beautiful song.
Meanwhile, eight intensive days in Taiwan so soon after Okinawa has left me exhausted! I will continue with Okinawa posts (about 7 more to go) but I'll share some local posts in the meantime as well, including a most memorable dinner with one of the best chefs to have emerged from Taiwan - Andre Chiang.
Happy Easter Sunday, folks!
