Today was my last day wandering beautiful Tainan so I went to the Anping district. Some photos coming soon of an old fort and museum. It was just a gorgeous day so I walked the few miles back along the canal walk. Here’s what I saw on the way back. I shot these on the iPhone 11 with the Halide app. Tomorrow off to Kaohsiung.

Clerodendrum phlomidis. Hindi : Arni, Sanskrit : Agnimantha. It is one of the important medicinal plants in Ayurveda and one of the 10 herbs of dashamoola. Interesting thing about this plant is something that is the root of its sanskrit etymology - agni = Fire, mantha = shake. So, if the sticks of the bark of the Arni is rubbed together, one would produce fire.

This is an image of the Chukar Partridge shot in Ladakh. In Indian and Pakistani culture this bird symbolises intense, often unrequited love and is thought to be in love with the moon and gazes at it constantly.

"When I beheld thy face mournful, lady, I wandered restlessly o'er the world, Thy face is like the moon, and my heart like the chakor" - translated from a Bengali song, have no idea which one or how popular.

Today went to museums around Tainan and some more temples. There are so many historic sites here! Here’s a few things I got to see today here. The last picture is the historic weather observation site. I really liked that building.

I think I saw both crows and ravens, and then something else - these, which I think are maybe eurasian jackdaws? I'm not sure...

A different part of the Danube...
There's a big island in the middle of the river with a very long park along it with bike trails.

A little vignette... I feel like a common theme of this place was juxtaposition of modern buildings and things with ornate old aesthetics, and a lot of construction + change happening
