Lucky Taipei people

I read recently that people who live in Tokyo must spend more than one hour and half getting out of the metropolitan to head over for some scenic places during their day-off. Unlike people in Tokyo, there are many good points of interest that are just near the city of Taipei; Yangming Shan, Danshui, Bali, Muzha, and just to name a few.

I went to Xianjiyan in Jingmei this Tuesday as it was the tomb sweeping day for our loved ones who are 6-feet under. While I was hiking down the trail in the hill overlooking the view of southern Taipei, I felt how lucky people living in Taipei are. It being the capital of the island, the residents here are able to obtain the best interest of everything from the government that includes the most education resources, the numerous parks available, the cleanest streets, the most convenient transportation on the island and so and so forth . That is no wonder people would like to settle down here though the living expense is at such a high level.
