Start the day with a good healthy breakfast.
The guesthouse and its compound, lovingly nurtured by Mr Huang and his mother, with the help of an Indonesian maid, is the perfect spot for a silent retreat.
No books, no phone calls, no conversations, no eye contact. I wonder how will the guests experience the silent morning. Thank you, Janice Leu, for allowing me to use her amazing photos. Her pictures show the beauty of Dulan despite the overcast and wet weather.
It’s time to venture outside of the guesthouse to connect with the people and the community. A little sightseeing and then off to the sea where A-Qi taught us how to fish and showed us how Amis people live off the sea here.
No free dinner here. We worked hard for our food. A-Qi and his wonderful friends cooked the catch for us at Sugar Factory Cafe.
As we head back to the guesthouse, the sky cleared a bit so we went to the hill top for a little star gazing. Several people spotted shooting stars. Lucky them!
Then, the most amazing thing happened. The moon appeared, cast a very long moon river over the Pacific ocean. We walked in silence, basked in moonlight, making our way slowly back to the guesthouse.
Here’s a picture from Janice of that magical moment.
Thank you for another super day.
