From Hualien to Taitung

Also from late January 2017, a few photos from the middle part of the trip. The first is from outside the hostel in Hualien (花蓮). It’s a far greener city than Taichung where I live.

In between Hualien and Taitung (台東) was a rest stop with a nice view. I bought a couple of postcards which are still sitting on my desk. There were images of different species of bird above the gift shop. It reminded me of my second week in Taiwan, when an older foreigner from the UK said that this island had relatively few birds but is first-rate for bird watching. I pick up on the sounds of birds more acutely after spending so many nights falling asleep in the center of an urban area (where the sounds of Savana Nightjars and window-crawling geckos are the norm).
