What would they do?
I glanced at the four paragraphs dedicated to Hsinchu and realized there was only one tourist attraction mentioned: the Pu Tian Temple Complex. I wondered what on earth this complex was as I was sure I had never even heard of it let alone visited it in the two years that I have lived here. Imagine my surprise when two paragraphs in, I realized that I knew exactly where the attraction was and that I had been there three times myself. We went on a sunny December day and we even took my mom there when she came to visit the first time!
We just had no.idea what the place was supposed to be because it is so... weird.
As it turns out, it is a private collection of goodies that is open to the public. That is why there is no cohesive theme to the stuff collected there; the owner simply grabbed anything (including the statue of liberty + the thinking man) and everything (including terracotta warriors + dinosaurs) that he/she wanted.
And it is exactly its bizarre nature that makes it so.much.fun to see again + again and it is precisely for that reason that when we saw the sun was shining this morning, we grabbed our new Canon camera and scooted off into the mountains to be a tourist in our own city.
