Taiwan Lets Take A Drive 3

Shuishe, Puli, Longshan: "Moon Lake"


Taipei, Taiwan

November 6, 2007

Dear Family and Friends,

Shuishe Village hugs the shore of Sun Moon Lake, the largest body of fresh water in Taiwan. The brochure reads, "A magical crystal lake . . . dialogue between sun and moon, link between mountains and water." My stroll along the waterfront, the boat excursion and the short climb to hillside temple all confirm that this is "one of Taiwan's most spectacular natural landscapes." * The indigenous Thao tribe sells food and handicrafts at the tourist-filled market.
