yes fast enough. Sounded like heaven. Read on for my first few days of adventuring in Pingtung county. (WARNING: Picture heavy. Give it some time to load up).
My first foray into Pingtung was aimed at the area around Sandimen, a popular tourist area in the mountains that offers aboriginal culture and stunning mountain scenery. On this trip I actually stayed in and around the town of Shuimen in Neipu. The last time I was in this area was after Morakot in Aug of 2009 (post). But then I didn't have a chance to really experience what the area had to offer.
I stayed one night at the Aboriginal Culture Park just outside of Shuimen town. It is easy to find, Shuimen being a town of few roads. I had never spent much time in this area -- like many people, I had heard that Sandimen and the surrounding area was lovely with lots to see and do, but had never been there to check it out.

Stay tuned for parts 2,3 and 4 -- Taiwu and Laiyi townships, more Majia township, and Kenting!
