Woman Praying Seriously

Woman praying seriously in Lungshan Temple

The woman was praying seriously in front of an altar

Shot at Lungshan Temple, a Chinese folk religious temple in Taipei, Taiwan.

Standing by the roadside, I used my smartphone. And I called a taxi by Uber app. This was the first time to use Uber. So I had some misgivings about the app. Keying in my destination, I waited for a while.

In the meantime, a car came to me. Opened the door and I clambered abroad. The driver didn't say a word. Yet he knew where he should go already. The vehicle started to move.

The destination was Lungshan Temple, one of the major tourist destinations in Taipei. Before too long, the car arrived without any problems. I realized that the app was so useful. Both to tell the destination and to pay money in the car were not needed. I wished it were possible to use this app also in Japan.

The temple was crowded with many worshippers. Of course, there were many tourists in the precinct. However, most of the people there seemed to be local. And they prayed in front of each altar which was placed in spots in the temple.
