Day 3 - Wednesday, July 8th 2015
This day was the opposite day from the day one. All the activities were indoor activities. They played drama about The God of Sea, Lin Mo- Niang. Taiwan Mazu (台灣媽祖) is The Guardian proctector of Taiwan. Take a look at this video to know more about her : Taiwan Mazu by Discovery Channel
I Opening Drama by TA Student
My team played a Chinese folk tale drama about The Weaver Girl and the Cowherd. It was about a love story between Zhinü (織女) the weaver girl and Niulang (牛郎) the cowherd. Their love was not allowed, thus they were banished to opposite sides of the Silver River (symbolizing the Milky Way). Once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, a flock of magpies would form a bridge to reunite the lovers for one day.
There are many variations of the story.The earliest-known reference to this famous myth dates back to over 2600 years ago, which was told in a poem from the Classic of Poetry.

Day 4 - Wednesday, July 9th 2015
The last day was the Field Trip day. We visited Baguashan (Mt. Bagua) at Changhua. Changhua is best known for its landmark statue of the Buddha. At 26 metres tall, the statue sits atop Bagua Mountain overlooking the city. The main walkway up to the giant is lined with statues of figures from Buddhist lore. Another site of interest is Taiwan's oldest temple honoring Confucius.

Finally after the field trip we came back to school. There was a fun moments to started my first summer holiday in Taiwan. Before we went home, we took pictures and sing together. Some people cried because they would came back to their county and maybe had no chance to meet others again.
