OK, so Fengyuan (Fongyuan) 豊原 sits in a plain, and the song is basically a put-down of suburban values, which isn't my intention here. We still had a very pleasant time this afternoon with Steve and his family, who drove out to have lunch with us in our apartment. Afterwards, we all headed over to a nearby park, where the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and a good time was had by all.
After Steve, Amber, Zoey and Eli said their goodbyes and headed back to T'aichung (Taijhong) 台中, we made a brief stop at my in-laws' house. Every time she visits her grandparents, Amber is drawn to the piano in their living room, where she starts banging away at the keys. Is it possible we have a budding Thelonious Monk セロニアス・モンク in our midst?
