An ancient Chinese proverb says:
The wise prefer waters, the benevolent prefer mountains.
This Monday, Mark and Li tried to be benevolent people.
It was our first time trying the No.2 trail in Dakeng, Taichung.
We underestimated the gradient of this trail and found it out soon…
It was nice to exercise our loosing muscles and sweat a lot on our way to the ridge.
It wasn't wise enough to do it without bring enough water…
That’s why we tried to be benevolent…
In addition to beautiful scenery and luxury fresh mountain air, we also experienced friendly human interactions with many strangers.
The narrow path effetely shrank the distance among total strangers.
After reaching the end of the No.2 trail, we went up a bit more to the ridge which grew 5 old pine trees.
You could see the foots of the ridge’s both sides. It was amazing.
There are 10 trails for you to choose. No. 2 will be the steepest one.
Try to see it yourself if you have a chance to visit Taichung county.
In March, we went to Thailand to bring back this new dish, Thai Eight Treasures Starter, for Thai Do customers. Most people cannot resist it. The way to eat it is very easy, just apply a thin layer of its source on the leaf, add eight ingredients, fold the leaf and put it in your mouth. Bon Appetit! Most of you will experience a pleasant taste and aroma after chewing mixed eight ingredients and the source. Wish you all enjoy this dish!
