Taiwan Trip, Day 3, Chia-yi via Beigang (Oct. 21, 2008)

 After we left Lugang we got on our way to Chia-yi, the site of our next school visit. We got there by way of Beigang, the site of a very large Matsu temple. It was too bad the entire temple was covered in corrugated sheet metal and construction materials, but nevertheless we got to see some beautiful stuff in there. A few pictures:

Once in Chia-yi, we ate dinner in a local joint and walked around in some of the busier shopping streets. Even at night, Taiwanese towns are bustling with life, and definitely an overload on the senses that takes some getting used to:
