Tamsui, Taiwan: A Space of In-betweenness! (21 July 2014)

On my last day in Taiwan, I had this blissful chance to visit Tamsui, a port city in the north of Taipei, Taiwan. It was a short time trip, most likely a stroll in the late afternoon, but nonetheless one of the most lingering memory in my mind. It proved that I always have a thing with a port city set-up. Last time I was so in love with Yokohama in Japan, and then in Taiwan, Tamsui stole my breath away.
