Favorite thing: On a clear day you can see forever in Chiayi...(If you have ever visited here you would find this statement amusing...)
Chiayi is actually one of the more smog choked places on the planet. I lived here for about 2 years, very close to these mountains shown in this picture, and pretty much never saw them...
The picture here is of a 99 percentile 3 sigma event (A large storm had just blown thru which dispersed the smog long enough to snap a picture or two...)
I guess this is what the Portuguese were talking about when they named Taiwan Isla Formosa (The Beautiful Island...)

Favorite thing: Some local marketing genius, trying to emulate the success of the 7-11 Empire came up with his own brain child: The 5-9 store.
Note the similar coloring patterns and the close proximity to their chief rival...
I'm sure somewhere, somehow others are dreaming of a 8-12 or 6-9 store that they can call their very own...

Favorite thing: Heed caution on homework day... Large packs of diligent and determined young Taiwanese English students roam the streets of Chiayi looking for unsuspecting foreigners to help them with their English Homework assignments...
