Saludos de Taiwan (o Formosa)
Cumprimentos desde a Formosa.
Formosa is the name given by portuguese voyagers in 16 centry. They shouted out 'Ilha Formosa,' when passed by the island. Taiwan is a long shape island. The west side is face mainland China across Taiwan Strait, and most people live on the plain in west. This postcard is the east coast. I like ocean and the colour blue very much. I wonder how far from your place to the coast.
This postcard is about the kettle-hole in Shihtiping in Hualien. Shihtiping is well-known for it sea erosion coast. As I said in the postcard, I like this blue reflection of sky in the hole. Very beautiful. Sky blue brings me a good time.
