last night peter and i went up to yamingshan to see the night view. to be honest, the view of taipei isn’t all that special. but while we were up there, we saw some fireflies. this made me more than happy as i’ve never seen a firefly before and was starting to think i never would. i’d heard that they no longer existed in the taipei area because of the pollution. but apparently a few still exist up on yamingshan. i’ve always wanted to see them in real life ever since reading sam and the firefly when i was little.
