Taiwan Day 3!

Sorry for the delay in my posts; there's no internet connection readily available at my grandmother's house! I have to walk a couple of houses to my uncle's house to upload videos and pictures, and then it takes forever for everything to process! But here I am with day three of our Taiwan tour! On this day, we mainly visited the Hakka town in Taiwan, where they specialized in home goods such as pottery, bath soaps, and even homemade wooden massagers! There were also BEAUTIFUL intricate wood carvings and sculptures on sale, which I'm sure were worth a ton because they take to long to complete and every little minute detail is paid great attention to. Below are the video and the pictures I took on that day, remember to watch in HD! Enjoy :)

The many sculptures in just one of the shops we visited!

Some wall decorations, with an eerie feel to them in my opinion.

Some more beautiful carvings and sculptures, and the giant, polished wooden table.

All natural passion fruit popsicle yum!

A local elderly woman checks out this gigantic sculpture of birds with branches carved in

A closeup of the birds

Another intricately carved sculpture of leaves and branches; it amazes me just how much time is spent on these works of art!

The restaurant famously known for their beef noodle soup--it was AMAZING!

In the restaurant, Dad decided to try on my sunglasses haha

Beef noodle soup!

Closeup of the beef; that's not fat you see, its the tendons of the beef--almost like pork belly if any of you have had it!

Another shot of the store front as we're leaving, the cow decal is just too cute haha

The pottery street!

This shot I took of a mini waterfall outside a temple that day makes me want to try out some HDR photos! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed this post, I'll try my best to post Day 4 as soon as possible!
