Beautiful Taiwan


Taiwan was the second country we visited on the 2010 Corn Mission with the U.S. Grains Council, after Japan. I was pleasantly surprised by this little island of a country – it was like a tropical mountain range. I felt like we were somewhere in between Denver and Dillon, CO, except there were no fir trees – all tropical trees!

The meetings and tours of feed mills were great as the people of Taiwan are so gracious and hospitable. Much more so than the strictness and formality of Japanese business men. You can read more about the meetings on my blog post on the Nebraska Corn Kernels that you can read here.

I want to fill this blog space with beautiful pictures from the Jianguo Holiday Flower Market that is only open this time of year on the weekends – good thing were were there! This flower market was over a mile long and was full of beautiful orchids, bonsai trees, poinsettias, roses, fountains, trees, and gardening supplies for sale. Enjoy these beautiful pictures!
