As we prepare to leave Taiwan for another summer in the States, here are some pictures of our neighborhood here in Taichung.    
The Morrison community calls it “the Village” even though it’s part of a rather large city. 
Apparently old-timers remember the days when this area really was a village some distance from the rest of Taichung.
Interestingly enough, I suppose most of these photos do make it look somewhat rural.
I pass these geese that live in the betel nut grove every week on my way to the Shui Nan Market.

Alas, some of these sights are to be seen no longer.  The construction in our neighborhood is changing things fast!
I’m going to miss the Village this summer!
