No it’s not Chinese lol! It’s from The Lonely Goatherd in the Sound of Music, and yes honestly, someone was playing that music on the top of 陽明山 Yang-Ming Shan Mountains on Saturday – the first fine (and free!) Saturday for ages….
Stunning views on top of Taipei and beyond..
Butterflies fluttering, flowers blooming, and people smiling – including these 2 old men who were also up on the top, one aged 88, the other 93!
And over on the highest mountain, 七星山 Chi-Shing Shan (1120m) the lichens were stunning – but so was the smell of the fumaroles (smoke holes) in the volcanic rocks – that smoke is not normal fog, honest! Photos will never convey the terrible stinky rotten-egg smell of Chi-Shing Shan, it hangs in the air all over, and when you get close up, the heat is incredible too.. but it’s all worth it to get to the top YEAH!
People-watching is fun on Yang-Ming Shan – oh yes, on East Peak someone was playing ‘The Lonely Goatherd’ from the Sound of Music ~ ‘High on a hill was a lonely goatherd, Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo’!
Slightly bizarre, but true ha ha!
