Taiwan (a teaser) – Longtan (龍潭, 台灣)
Filed under: photography, Taiwan, Travel
My trip to Taiwan was amazing.
Usually, trips back to Taiwan consist mostly of hanging out and eating with friends in Taipei. This time, family was priority. In exploring the village-grown-city of Longtan where my mother grew up, I learned a lot about my family and heritage. For instance, I got to explore the elementary school where my great grandfather had been the principal and my grandfather was once a student (and then, later, followed in his father’s footsteps in becoming the principal). The same elementary school my mother attended as a child and, where, today, my cousin is enrolled as a 5th grader.
Kind of cool, don’t you think?
In any case, this is just a teaser entry– there are nearly 600 photos taken in ten days that must be processed before I can post them!
