“The Ancestor” – Taichung, Taiwan

I have a special affinity for the band Darlingside, in addition to the fact that they make great music. They were originally based in the town in which I went to college, so I was lucky enough to see them perform numerous times.

This video was filmed at the Rainbow Village in Taichung, a small military dependents village. One of the residents, a Mr. Huang, has painted all of the buildings in vivid, cheerful images. It’s now a very highly-frequented tourist site, and it was all I could do to snag a few minutes against my favorite wall to record this video.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the person who filmed this. It was the first time I’d ever asked a fellow tourist for help, and I couldn’t be happier with the results (although I do promise to put more effort into the audio quality in future videos. I need to speak, or, sing, up!)
