Beautiful downtown Burbank...er, I mean Fengyuan 街へ買い物に行っている
Amber and I had a fun afternoon today exploring downtown Fengyuan (Hōgen/Toyohara) 豊原, and the Pacific Department Store there. Our ostensible purpose was to purchase a birthday gift for Pamela, who turns...some number next Friday (mission accomplished). But we also took time to have lunch, romp in the デパート's fifth floor kiddie play area and generally cover a big chunk of the city center on foot (which didn't take long - Fengyuan isn't that large). Not a bad way to kill time before her late afternoon swimming class in T'aichung (Taichū) 台中. Next time, though, I think we'll hit some walking trails in the hills.
Amber making a total mess of herself with a chocolate cookie (and enjoying every moment of it); and goofing off inside the local bus station (we drove into downtown, but needed a restroom break).
