What's Going in Taitung City and County Townships/Municipalities 台東市,鄉,鎮最近動向 10

This will be the last news entry for a while.  Even in the best (and worst) of times there aren't a lot of things happening in Taitung, and since I'm probably moving to Pingtung next semester I'd rather start fresh with news from that part of the island. 這會是關於新聞的最後一篇.  通常台東沒有什麼事發生, 我下學期也應該會搬到屏東, 所以下學期會從屏東新聞開始.

For those less familiar with Taiwan, the "big" cities are divided into districts (區), and the counties are divided into cities (市), townships (鄉), and municipalities (鎮).  給對台灣比較不熟悉的讀者: 大城市 (高雄, 台南, 台中, 新竹, 桃園, 基隆, 嘉義, 台北, 跟新北市) 以下劃分為"區", 縣 (城市外的地方)則由市, 鄉, 鎮組成.

1. Da Ren Township 達仁鄉公所

There's a trail leading into a nature reserve between Nan Tian Village in Taitung County and Shu Hai Village in Pingtung County.  There is a limit to how many hikers can walk this trail each day, and Taitung County is hoping to raise the limit by 80 people. 台東南田部落和屏東旭海中間有一條進入自然保留區的步道.  台東縣希望把每日的使用人數提高到80人.

They've added three new speed cameras along the South Cross-Island Highway.  Two of these cameras are in the tunnel between the counties, one other is near Da Niao (Big Bird) Village. 警方在南迴公路上安裝三個測速照相桿.  兩個在連接台東縣與屏東縣的隧道裡, 還有一個在大鳥附近.

A man in in Da Ren was interviewed about growing quinoa there.  According to him the water supply in that area is a problem. 達仁鄉的 "紅藜先生" 為了水源煩惱.

2. Da Wu Township 大武鄉公所

New Tang Dynasty television has a video/article introducing Dawu Village.  It's somewhat interesting.  Be warned that aside from the trail on the hill behind the village there's not much there. 新唐人電視台有短片介紹大武村.  有興趣可以看.  除了村後面的步道, 大武村的景點不多.

An article in Chinese AND English!  This one's about the old Gu Jhuang Train Station being reopened as a tourist destination.  Duo Liang further north sees a lot of visitors so this makes sense. 這篇報導是中文, 還有英文翻譯喔.  這是關於重開古莊站當觀光景點.  參觀北邊多良站的觀光客非常多, 所以這是一個好主意. 

Construction crews recently dumped some of their equipment in front of a sculpture that the Taitung County Government paid WAY too much money for.  Most people probably didn't even notice. 最近南迴有工程單位施工, 把很多東西丟在很貴的藝術品旁邊.  大部分的人大概沒有注意到.

The temperature recently got as high as 37.1 in Da Wu, but it wasn't bothering the kids there all that much. 最近大武的高溫到達35.3度, 可是那邊的學童早就習慣炎熱的天氣了.*

Last Friday was Labor Day in Taiwan.  During the three-day weekend about 2000 people visited Green and Orchid Islands. 上週五是臺灣的勞動節.  兩千遊客去綠島蘭嶼.

Several homestays on Orchid Island were recently made legal.  All of the land there belongs to the local tribe, and this presented legal problems for such businesses. 蘭嶼11家民宿合法立案.  因為蘭嶼都是原住民用地, 很多民宿沒辦法取得建照跟使用執照.
