July Project "Where's Miss?" Taiwan, is the nearest distance ", from the beginning of the journey, close to this land more." Do you think you know Taiwan?
I like the city.
Not only because Calvino fondly wrote the city, but also because we were born in a solid city, the city Fed sheltered us. The texture of the city, the smell of dust in the city, the historical memory of the city, the old and new buildings in the city, the people living in the city, that is unique, and we, though we know not, are so eager to own a city.
The city is always a complex organism, and neither the new nor the old should be rejected. Tall buildings do not necessarily win the short lane, high-rise is not only the capitalist evil beast, but also the field of people's lives, born old and sick. So, between the new and the old, can not have the pros and cons, and there are more mutual benefit and the next phase of life, I still so naïve to believe. We have seen the possibility of a city-style renovation of the old house in Tainan.
Old house accommodation, old House restaurant, second-hand bookstore, old house art space ... The profusion and boundless imagination of the old House buildings highlight the memory of Tainan respecting the city's old age. Old no longer can only be the dark corner of the city and the ugly defeat, the old can confidently use its original face, Aboveboard live once again, be loved once. This is probably the selfishness and love of a city to its buildings.
Then think of that is not distant Tainan Tainan, I remember because the old house and have a new impression, space is living, can close the eyes with Lin department store as the impression of the beginning of the old house meridians, together with the inventory of the old house of Tainan.

There is another kind of old, Japanese style. Tainan's House tea is perhaps the closest to Kyoto in Taiwan, but it is not the usual copy affixed, but more vitality of the continuation and regeneration.
Before the train station, 80 years old curtilage, the house tea is originally the Japanese ruling period of the wooden dormitory, the last century by the Japanese sown cultural seeds, Wei House tea continued down, and began to say the new Tainan space story. Tatami, Wood building, Hut Liang Zao, the sense of the history of space is strong, into the space as if to go back to the 20 's time, experience at that time people live like this, but also alive. Point a brush to wipe the tea, follow the ancient law, gimmick and taste are beautiful enough.
