Jade Mountain 2

The roads around Taiwan aren't that stable due to the torrential rains, precipitous geography and seismic activity. Nevertheless Taiwan is covered with thousands of amazing engineering models in the form of roads in places that other countries wouldn't even consider. Things do go wrong sometimes and as you can see in this photo, we had to hang around waiting for a road barrier to be erected after heavy rains had washed away a portion of the road.

O Wow, I heard about the disappearing roads from other blog of the yu-shan too. Hopefully, I'll make it out of my trip in December alive. : ) Nice shot!!

Don't worry. Not once in my 2 1/2 years of living in Taiwan did I feel concerned for my personal safety. That's not because I'm incredibly unselfish, but because there was nothing concrete to worry about!

You'll be fine! Hope you have a GREAT time during your visit next year!
