Taiwan – Trip to PingXi train line (3)

Welcome back! We are still in Huotong. Walking along a small street and a gloomy day with a magnificent view of the mountains.

Heading back to the Huotong station, I had to cross a covered pedestrian bridge to get over the other side of the track. In the covered pedestrian bridge, you could see people feeding cats and cartoon cat size stand.

Still in Huotong. It is a small town formerly a mining town but now is a cat town; a town filled with cats.

Below is a row of food souvenir shops which were next to the railway station. The food looks good but I did not stop to grab anything.
