What to do when you have 48 hours in Taiwan?
My Aunt Sue and Uncle Paul, from Omaha, Nebraska stopped by for a visit while en route to Japan and Bora Bora. They learned that Taiwan isn’t exactly on the way to Japan, but we were glad to show them a fun weekend in our home town of Taichung and host them for a night.
After a relaxing massage and with a desire to stay out of the heat we made our way to the Taichung National Theater.

What we learned is that is was Mazu’s Birthday, the Chinese Sea Goddess. And we arrived just in time for the ear-popping celebration!
Every group that walked by the temple gave a performance.

Xiexie for visiting, Aunt Sue & Paul. We enjoyed kicking off your Asian adventure!
