Nan Keng Village is just south of San He Village. It's also west of the big highway ramp that leads to downtown Tai Ma Li. Both Nan Keng and San He Villages are to be found in Tai Ma Li Township, about a half hour south of Taitung City. 南坑村位於三和村南邊,位於台9線上坡的西邊往太麻里市區. 南坑村跟三和村都屬於太麻里鄉. 從台東市區到那裏大概要半小時左右.
This is looking south. That's Nan Keng Village on the right. The train tracks lead to downtown Tai Ma Li, Da Wu Township, and eventually Pingtung. To the left of the train tracks is Highway 9. 朝南方看. 南坑村在右邊. 中間的鐵路通往太麻里市區, 大武鄉, 還有屏東縣. 鐵路左邊的道路就是台9線.
A steep road leads into Nan Keng Village. It's a very quiet place. 一條往南坑村的陡徑. 這裡很安靜.
The bridge in the background is Highway 9. They're doing some kind of construction at the bottom of the hill. 後面的大橋是台9線. 有人在山坡下施工.
This is the hill above Nan Keng. I found a snake there, but it escaped before I could take its picture. 南坑的山坡. 我在這裡看到一條蛇, 可是牠不要讓我拍照.
This is near the bottom of the hill, close to the ocean. 在山坡下, 靠近海邊.
This is the bottom of the hill, leading to the beach. Aside from tire tracks, this is one of the cleanest beaches around. Not many people come down here. 山坡底靠近海邊. 除了輪胎痕跡之外, 下面的沙灘滿乾淨的. 來這裡的人不多.
The top of the hill again. To the left is a sugar apple orchard. 又是南坑上的山坡. 左邊有釋迦園.
Dai Tian Temple. This is probably the best known place between San He and downtown Tai Ma Li. Even so, its view of the ocean is cut off by Highway 9. 代天宮. 這所廟大概是三和和太麻里市區中間最有名的地方. 但是從這裡可以看到的海景被台9線擋住了.
The Dawn Park, just north of downtown Tai Ma Li. This park is fairly big, but there's nothing especially memorable about it. The "Bikini Beach Run" is held near here on New Year's Day.* 太麻里的北邊的曙光公園. 這個公園很大, 可是比較沒有特色. 元旦的時候會在這附近舉辦比基尼路跑.
This is looking north. That's Dulan Mountain in the background. 往北邊看. 最後面是都蘭山.
Someone tied prayer flags to many of the trees in this park. How's your Sanskrit? 公園裡的樹有很多的旗幟. 您的梵文如何?
This is looking west, toward Jin Feng Township. 往西邊看是金峰鄉.
This is the North Tai Ma Li (Wen Li) River**. To the left is where downtown Tai Ma Li starts, and to the right is the long climb back towards Taitung City. 這是北太麻里 (文里) 溪. 左邊是太麻里市區, 右邊是台9線上坡往台東市的地方.
Statue of local aborigines. No, they aren't that short. Or made of stone. Not sure what tribe these statues belong to, but Google Maps tells me the Sapulju Tribe lives across the river. 當地原住民的雕像. 他們當然沒有長得那麼矮, 也不是石頭人. 我不知道這二個雕像代表哪一族, 可是Google地圖說溪的另外一邊是撒布優部落.
