We tried to ride the gondola to the tea fields this morning; but after getting to the station, we discovered the gondola does not run on Mondays. Plan B took us to Jiannan Butterfly Eco-education Park on the far north side of Taipei. We went to Dahu Park after, and I did the 1.8km walk to the top of Egrets (Bailusi) Mountain. We capped the evening with the least pleasant of our excursions just so we could say we did go to Longshan Temple and the surrounding night markets. That area of town is oppressive with filth, both literal and moral, and the pagan worship that is the center of the Buddhist Taiwan. Pray for the people of Taiwan.
