Welcome to the Plaza
A short drive from our apartment building, there is a large concrete plaza and underground parking lot. From what I understand, it was built to house an odoriferous traditional market located at the intersection of Yuanhuan and Chungcheng Roads in Fengyuan (Toyohara) 豊原. For reasons unknown to me, the market vendors decided against relocation, and the plaza has been sitting unused for several years now. Until today that is. I don't know why it took so long for me to realize it, but this concrete oasis makes an ideal spot for a little girl to ride her tricycle around in, and to play hide-and-seek かくれんぼ with her daddy. Not to worry, Fengyuan city fathers - your taxpayer-funded white elephant has finally been put to good use!
