Absolutely Saturated


During our Chinese New Year’s week long break, we were graced with NEVER and mean NEVER ending amounts of rain. That wasn't going to stop me though, no way I was going to spend my week off in this shoe box I call home.  So I buttoned up my rain jacket and set out for a new adventure. My eye was set on Xindian, the most southern stop on the MRT (subway). The views there were spectacular! With all the extra rain, the river was flowing and you could hear the waterfalls waiting to be discovered. I went by my self the first two days in search of a particular hike I found on somebody else’s blog, but to no avail with my embarrassing lack in the Chinese language. On the third day in the wet, green, mountainous terrain of Xindian, my friend Tai thankfully joined me and we found how to reach that "hidden from Maresa” hike in 5 minutes.......I really need to learn Chinese ............
