From within Minxiong ghost house 民雄鬼屋

Ghost Island 鬼島

In recent years Taiwanese have adopted the term guǐdǎo 鬼島 (literally "Ghost Island") as a self-deprecatory reference to the lack of opportunity, economic stagnation, government corruption and waste, and all the sorrow that seems to manifest itself here in Taiwan 台灣. Here I am inverting its meaning, for I am a ghost from the outer world, an emissary sent to witness those lost and forgotten places that often escape notice. Apart from the loose collection of posts gathered here I also have an entire section of my blog dedicated to exploring this theme in greater depth.
