Tomb Sweeping Holiday!

Last Wednesday was Tomb Sweeping Day, an official holiday when Taiwanese people are supposed to gather together with family members and head out to the family gravesites and tombs to remember their ancestors. Since I have no family here, and Connie’s relatives were taking care of the family duties, Connie and I decided to head out to one of the local tourist attractions for the day: DanShui! One of the sites of the earliest foreign settlements in Taiwan, DanShui (also called TamSui) is a collection of narrow streets filled with a mix of buildings of local and foreign style. The River Boardwalk is perhaps it’s most interesting attraction, and that’s where Connie and I spent our afternoon. Posted by Picasa
