This is my second visit to National Center for Traditional Arts. It rained during my first visit. I came with a group of volunteers, and I signed up for a bike ride along the river. It was quite a day, as I had to watch out for the camera (borrowed from a friend), and ride the bike at the same time. The weather wasn't that bad when we arrived this time, but knowing that this is Yilan, we had our umbrellas with us anyway. There was no special agenda for the day. We simply wanted to keep it simple. We had a casual lunch (so casual that I'm not going to bother posting an article about it), and then just hang out here until we get bored!
There were many of these small items sold here. They were all very cute, but I wouldn't know what to do with them once I took them home!
But it didn't cost a thing to just take a look around.
We're not that big a fan of the corporation that established this center, but it can't be denied that they did quite a good job with the place. It was a weekend last time I was here. This time, there were less people, as we were here during a weekday. It was easier to take shots of whatever you wanted, with no one getting in your way.
It was a nice way of getting to know some of the traditional arts.
I had missed out on their daily show last time, so I wanted to see it.
The actors were all very professional. Great show. Then, we took another walk around.
I saw a place with homemade soap and wanted to try it out.
I thought it was "make your own soap". It turned out, it was just making shapes out of a big chunk of soap, then put them together on a string.
There were kids there, too. They seemed pretty excited, but the mother seemed a bit anxious.
I suppose she just didn't want the kid to waste too much of the soap.
The soap was actually quite nice. You can use the soap for dishes and handwash laundry. It wasn't recommended for showers, as the clerk pointed out that it might be too strong for the skin.
After another walk around, we decided it was time to see our room for the night! (See previous post for the lodge)
