Kanga spends Vacation time with Mr Tu in Taiwan

Mr Tu takes Kanga on a Vacation

t1

 

難得老師一家人要到台南訪親,我特別要求同行,接者我要來向大家介紹台南,這個台灣首屈一指的古都。
Schools are closed and children are still on vacation. So I went to Tainan with Mr. Tu’s family and stayed with his relative.
Tainan is a city in southern Taiwan. It is the most antique city of Taiwan, governed as one of special municipalities.
(Tainan.2013/2/2. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

“What is the paddy field for? There is no any  plants inside.”
這裡有一片奇怪的水田,裡面竟然寸草不生。

When you get closer, you can see small crystals in the water. Do you have any idea what it is?
水中有許多結晶,你有沒有一些線索呢?

These are salt evaporation ponds.
Salt evaporation ponds, also called salterns or salt pans, are shallow artificial ponds designed to extract salts from sea water or other brines. The seawater or brine is fed into large ponds and water is drawn out through natural evaporation which allows the salt to be subsequently harvested.
這是台南七股的鹽田。鹽田是一種在鹽鹼地利用太陽能蒸發鹵水中的水分,以取得鹽的結晶的設施,在臺灣又稱為「鹽灘」、「鹽埕」。

They told me the salt here is not for human consumption. These salt evaporation ponds are only for visitors. That’s the reason why I can lie on a pile of salt and enjoy sunbath.
七股鹽場已不再生產食用鹽,現在成為南部著名的觀光景點,所以我可以輕鬆地躺在鹽堆上享受日光浴。

然而,如果我光著身子,躺在鹽堆上接受日光的酷曬,會不會成為這一掛鹹魚呢?
When they told me that drying and salting was the only widely available method of preserving fish until the 19th century, I jumped out of that salt pile and stopped sunbathing. I don’t want to turn myself into one of them.

You can use their facilities . 你可以體驗從前採鹽的辛苦

You can also have a good time hiking in the White Mountain, the giant salt rock. 你也可以登上台灣的長白山–七股鹽山。

    I wonder how much salt they produce a year? It looks like a lot and I wonder how big the salt hills are? It would be great to go there and would like to find out more about then!

    It looks like Kanga is having a blast at the salt farms. I wonder how much salt there is in the whole salt farm? I would love to go there and learn more about the process it goes through. There is a lot of salt at the farm.
