I was especially pleased and proud to see my daughter overcoming her fear of getting bitten (after what happened to her at the horse ranch in Houli [Kōri] 后里), and enjoy her first ride on a pony:
Probably the best thing about the Flying Cow Ranch is that it provides kids in heavily urbanized Taiwan a rare chance to enjoy open, grassy spaces. Which begs the question: why is my child growing up in central Taiwan and not in the New England countryside?:

Sunset in what passes for the countryside in Taiwan; in this case, the town of Yuanli (Enri) 苑裡 in Miaoli County. If you're hungry and passing through this area, just keep driving: some of the most blandest tasting food in some of the filthiest restaurants I've ever encountered on the Beautiful Island.
