Tainan is a city the colour of old things. It is the oldest city in the country, and is still home to many vestiges of Taiwan’s past, including the Japanese Occupation.
We often think faded when we think old, but as I roamed the city I found that old sometimes means bold, bright, and hardy.
I loved the way the old stood in this city.
