We Once Dreamed of The Stars

We once dreamed of the stars
A derelict amusement park ride in the hills of Taichung.

Pictured here is one of many rides at Encore Garden 亞哥花園, an abandoned theme park up in the hills of Taichung 台中. It was an eerie experience exploring it while on my inaugural bicycle tour around Taiwan. There were none of the usual fairground sounds one would expect—only the haunting calls of nature, of insects buzzing through the air and amphibians croaking in the soggy undergrowth below.
