After refreshing the inner man, I headed for Dihua Street, which is one of the tourist attractions in Taipei. It is a busy commercial area and the shops sell Chinese herbal medicine, Taiwanese tea, dried goods, and others.

This area was originally a village of Ketagalan, a Taiwanese aboriginal people. Yet Chinese people stated to migrate here in the middle of the 19th century. In the late of the 19th century, this area became a part of Tamsui District, which was one of the Treaty Ports, and prospered. Once German and American consular offices were set up here.

Dihua Street stretched straight and was flanked by historical buildings. Many signboards were hung on the walls. And I could see a blue sky above the street.
