More than meets the eye
Gold was not just discovered in Egypt or Africa; the precious element was once buried on this little island, too. The two mountain villages on the northeastern tip of the island bustled with gold fever - Jioufen and Jinguashih – boomed through the 1960s, when the region's ores were depleted and inhabitants moved away.

A second look at Sanxia
Just over a decade ago I went to Sanxia (三峽) in Taipei County (臺北縣) for the first time. I wrote about that trip for this newspaper, and I don't need to refer to my old article to recall what struck me during that visit: the rainy, blustery weather; the magnificence of the town's major temple; and the dilapidated yet picturesque redbrick houses along what was then called Minquan Street (民權街).
