My friend JP used to sing a Taiwanese folk song called “Ali shan de gu niang”. It was a popular song* about the women of Ali Mountain. The song was in Mandarin and JP was of East Indian background. I am always amazed at her talent especially because I can’t even sing a song in English. (I’m horrible with lyrics.)
On this post, we explore Ali Shan, the same mountain referred to in the song.
* I want to say it was popularized by Zhang A-Mei but cannot confirm.
There are shops of food and trinkets. High mountain tea and fresh wasabi are among its enamoured features.
Note to Self: Posing ideas for future travel companions. :)
