Visiting Yingge (鶯歌)

This is a short post from Yingge, a town near Sanxia, which I’ve posted from before. I recently returned for a second visit and stopped this time in Yingge, a town known for its creation of ceramics. It’s a bit of a touristy area with cobblestone roads and pedestrian-only zones.

Above: a mounted policewoman in Yingge. This is a rare sight in Taiwan – I rarely see horses on the island.

  1. A mounted policewoman in Taiwan… I never woulda guessed they existed in a million years. Extremely interesting– thanks!

    • Thanks! Yeah – imagine my surprise when they trotted past complete with some poor guy behind them on a tricycle type thing with a basket to pick up the droppings!

      • Yow! I’ve had some dirty jobs in my time, but I can’t top that. Get a shot of that guy next time– must confess that perversely, I’d like to see it! : )
