Alishan Wedding.

Exchanging vows in the presence of Alishan・s sacred cypress trees hundreds of years old is becoming an increasingly popular way to tie the knot. Mass weddings have been held here every October in the past few years.
In addition to exchanging vows, couples can also get bridal photos taken here and even spend their honeymoon in these mountains. While some prefer hotels, my friend Axel and I have chosen to check out one of the more interesting B&B・s. Today we・re pretending to be newlyweds.
The one I used to do back in Morocco, (the bowl) was deeper, more (room) for the rice. The problem with that though, is that you have termites, usually. So if you don・t mind a few smashed legs inside...
Wearing Tsou tribe outfits, we・re pounding glutinous rice together with sweet potatoes. Plain or dipped in brown sugar, these are traditional snacks that are chewy, filling, fun to make and tasty to eat.
Wow, the BBQ smells great.
Tsou style BBQ.
At this B&B, the owners are incredibly friendly.
You guys are looking very traditional.
Just like a real Tsou tribesman.
That・s right.
Now you guys look it more than we do.
Do the Tsous go on honeymoons?
I don・t think we know how to. Our men are very introverted. They usually don・t do anything romantic, but when they actually do something, it・s a real big surprise.
Like us, we・ve been married for more than 20 years. She told me that I am totally unromantic, that I・ve haven・t given her even one rose. That 23 cafe shop over there was my present to her on our 23rd anniversary. She was really touched. So do we Tsous need honeymoons? I don・t think so.
Different environments, beautiful places, interesting people - these are all wonderful things about traveling. We had a fantastic experience in Alishan this time around, so I am definitely coming back again in the not-so-distant future.
That was a lovely honeymoon we had.
Quite. Quite. It did goes as a surprise, though. The lonely place back there, all made by A-jiang. They were really, really welcoming. Very, very hospitable. That really gets you back and going to the everyday life.
Well I plan on coming back to the spring, you wanna come?
Sure.
That・ll be fun, huh?
Sure will.
