Last Sunday after church we, along with approximately 15 other friends from church and 3E, headed to northern Taipei to a mountain called Yang Ming Shan. We first rode the subway and then transferred to a small bus that took us up many winding roads to the top of the mountain. Our first stop was a small, quaint restaurant to eat lunch. Because the weather was rainy and windy on the mountain we sat at the restaurant for almost 3 hrs. It was a wonderful time to be with friends, relax, and eat good food.
From there, we headed to a field where you could pick Calla Lilies. Each Calla Lily was 10NT or 30 cents USD. Erich picked 5 beautiful ones and we’ve been enjoying their beauty in our apartment the last few days.
Before heading back to Taipei a friend said she was hungry for sweet potato soup, so we all went to a restaurant and order many bowls of hot sweet potato soup. It was quite good and a perfect ending to our time on the mountain.
