Shuihuo Cave, Alishan - TAIWAN (R.O.C.)
My first postcard from Taiwan! In the small island of Taiwan (officially the "Republic of China" which is different of "People's Republic of China" that normally we call only China... confused? well, it's a long story and a bit hard to explain!) there are much more things than electronics factories; lot's of people don't know, but Taiwan have lots of beautiful natural areas like Alishan where this cave stands (Shuihuo means Water and Fire). Thank you very much Chang, I really like your card and the stamps you used are amazing. This postcard took 12 days to arrive!
