The Year-end Approaches

Filed under: My Word... — bbluesman @ 2:41 pm

I know I don’t do this nearly enough. Perhaps, with just a few days before Christmas, I’m feeling reflective? Certainly, in a wind-down mode with not much work to do, or mood to do it. Here is a beautiful image from a famous port town in northern Taiwan-Danshui(literal meaning: fresh water). Very nicely photographed by Allen Hsu, who is quite obviously in love with his country. Danshui is well know for its sunsets and is a big tourist attraction with all kinds of local delicassies for all tastes and budgets.

Danshui is also well known for the “Red-haired fort” a settlement made by a Dutch(the Dutch supplied the ‘red hair” of the name) garrison back in the 17th Century. Danshui is suburb of taipei-the capital city of taiwan, and has some very nice beaches nearby.
