No this is nothing obscene. My wife and me looked at 1000 crappy houses near factories or junkyards so far and whenever there was some untouched green the sales lady assured us we do not need to worry it would be removed within the next weeks. :s
But then I found Longtan.
A green area, clean, almost sterile. Looking like a sleepy town in Denmark.
Empty clean streets.
Even the streetdogs are cute.
An empty shopping centre with a 7/11 that really opens between 7 and 11.
Parks, parks parks …
Green tea fields, cloud covered mountains in the distance.
The smell of green and grass, dead frogs on the sidewalk. Yeah, I said SIDEWALK.
But when you use it two police cars will surround you and the security guards will look concerend out of their huts.
And housing is not too expensive.
But is it so goddamned moist that the humidity will make the furniture rot? What about that. My wife claims this, as she wants to move on a junkyard in Taoyuen…
