A bit late, but here they are. My photos of our Mid-Autumn Festival (also known as Moon Festival) festivities! This is a holiday filled with BBQ, deliciously fattening mooncakes (that sit like a rock in your stomach after eating just one), and family reunions. Click on the wikipedia link above to get the more factual, less artsy explanation.
My ridiculously good-looking husband trying his hand at the BBQ. Wow ... he's a man's man!
Typical Taiwanese BBQ. Doesn't that squid look yummy?
This is 雞心 (chicken heart) and 雞屁股 (chicken butt) on a stick. Taiwanese people are adamant that chicken butt is good for the skin.
Look! I know how to BBQ!
Pomelos are in season during the Mid-Autumn Festival, and are often given as a gift along with mooncakes. My friend, Ali, is wearing the peel of one on her head. According to Taiwanese tradition, this is good luck.
How could I not fall in love with this man?
Our beautiful hostesses BBQing. Notice how the BBQs are very low to the ground, making it necessary to squat or sit on a low stool to cook. The BBQs here are somewhat disposable. You usually use them a few times and then throw them away.
BBQ bamboo. This is actually quite tasty!
