Neiwan!

Cathy, her sister, and myself spent a rainy afternoon in Neiwan on Sunday. Neiwan is a small community east of Hsinchu. While driving there we caught a glimpse of the train on the Hsinchu – Neiwan route packed with people going to the same destination as we were:

I think we are getting closer:

Somehow, we were able to find a parking space in all the mess so we could finally explore the area. The crowds were tolerable, likely only because it was going to rain sometime that evening:

Of course, the place was filled with food vendors, so we didn’t have to go hungry long after arriving:

Time to make our own tea, first we grind everything together:

While doing this we eat snacks:

In the end, it looks like this and tastes delicious:

The place was run by this couple, they were the nicest people we met on the trip. Showering them with compliments paid off because they gave us a discount in the end:
