A god's B-day and some older a-typical Taiwan shots

At bottom are a couple of old shots which are not your typical tourist in Taiwan shots, but I think respresent Taiwan quite well.
This weekend I am off to Cindy's parent's house. Her little brother finishes his military service (21 months!!!) and it's her family's god's birthday tomorrow. Their family's god is 關帝 (guan di). He is a god of war and literature, worhsipped by both gangsters and the police. I am not sure what the celebration will entail, except for the usual burning of ghost money and eating large amounts of food, but I will post when I return.
