Xinbeitou, Taipei County


March 4, 2006 - Between Xinbeitou MRT station and the Zen practice center is a long, thin park. It's a pleasant walk of about 10-15 minutes, slightly uphill. Xinbeitou is famous for its hot springs and there is one in the park. As for this picture, it looks like a fountain, but it had koi in it. Koi fountain? They probably turn the fountain on in hotter weather. I'd like to see the koi get sucked into the fountain and shot up in the air. Yea, the Japanese tourists who come for the hot springs would love that.

iTunes soundtrack:
1. Poison (David Byrne)
2. Daytime, Nightime Suffering (Wings)
3. Don't Forget to Dance (The Kinks)
4. With Every Light (Smashing Pumpkins)
5. It Depends On What You Pay ("The Fantasticks")
6. Temptation (Tom Waits)
7. The Rhythm Method (drum solo) (Rush)
8. Everytime (Britney Spears)
9. Undertow (remix) (Genesis)
10. Tomorrow Never Knows (The Beatles)

(ok, i'm not going to comment on everything, but would just like to say that this -- I'd like to see the koi get sucked into the fountain and shot up in the air -- made me laugh and want to draw an illustration for it. but, er, if you can ever actually get a photo, DO THAT!)
