A Little Taste of Penghu

This week I spent 36 hours in the Penghu. What a blast! I hope to make it back in a couple of weeks for some riding around the islands. I went to a bed and breakfast today and there was a cute boy playing with his dad in the lounge, so on the way I out I said: "Bye!" And he said "Bye-bye, grandfather." Luckily there are no trees in the Penghu, or else I would have hung myself immediately.

Makung is filled with cool, twisting alleys. Here is one by a temple wall.
