We then took a ride up into the mountains to cook our lunch of eggs and mielies (corn) in a basin of boiling hot slightly sulfurous water. My first experience of geothermal cooking. The place is at the same location as a failed geothermal power plant, but it doesn't have an industrial feel at all.

After lunch we drove around in the mountains and then headed back towards Yilan for supper. On the way Derek spotted a field full of sunflowers, we stopped and found there were a number of fields full of flowers. It was a good place for some photos, so we took many.

|I must have said something funny|
|Some people offered to take this pic|
|Then they recommended all kinds of poses, their English was good|
|I'm not sure what they smelled like, my nose is perpetually blocked|
|Renalda insisted on taking these picks... guess who is the better photographer!|
