JOSEPH ROSENDO’S TRAVELSCOPE
Taiwan: Mountain Beauty, Villages and Cultures, Part 2

 

In this Taiwan episode Joseph leaves the forested heights of Taroko National Park and continues his explorations of Taiwan’s small, cultural mountain villages. In their historic “Old Streets” he explores artisan shops, local restaurants and colorful temples for a hearty taste of Taiwanese culture. He also discovers more of Taiwan’s original people through their food, arts & crafts, customs and traditions. He tries his hand at indigo cloth dying with the Hakka people, witnesses traditional Tayan weaving and participates in the equally somber and joyous Pasta’ay Festival of the indigenous Saisiyat Tribe. Here he joins in their festival of Blessing, Atonement and Forgiveness.
