Yehliu Geopark

The day after we all went to the baseball game, we went to Yehliu Geopark which is located about 20-25 miles/a little bit less than a mile  from Taipei to the Northeast.yehliugeopark16

Adventures with Angela Part 1

For some reason, young people in Taipei seem to really like the Amish, 90′s-mom look.

Angela and I went to a market in one of the squares near Gongguan and we found some pretty cool stuff. A lot of the clothes that were on sale ranged from 50NT (roughly $1.66 USD) to 1400NT ($46USD), with denim jackets being in the latter group. It reminded me of a swap-meet but with young people just spring cleaning their closets. They had boxes and suitcases full of clothes, sitting on the ground with a group of friends, inviting people to come and check out their clothes, accessories, shoes.

A few vendors were selling new or upcycled clothing, some of which was pretty interesting but I was more interested in checking out what the university aged vendors were selling.
