Speaking of summer, I like the cool bamboo shoots that food vendors sell. Served with just a little salad dressing, they are unique, crispy, and refreshing. That's right. Bamboo shoots are Taiwan's signature food. Tainan's Longci District is where bamboo shoots abound. In addition to bamboo shoots, Longci offers many bamboo-related products. Longci! Things related to bamboo? What are they? Bamboo grows quickly and has tough fiber, so it is a natural material for many purposes. But what has attracted attention recently is the bamboo charcoal. Bamboo charcoal? What is it for? The fire is not ordinary, that's for sure. The bamboo is burned to coals at a temperature greater than 1000 degrees Celsius. The bamboo coals are used to filter and purify water, deodorize, and dehumidify. It has many functions. Sounds great. And it's natural. It's very environmentally friendly. That's right. It's very popular now. Isn't Longci's landscape unique? Yes, Longci has the unique landscape called “badlands.” Longci also has many great scenic hiking trails. They're great for a casual walk on weekends and for experiencing the mountains and forests. Although it's in the mountains, it's actually not as far as you might think it is. That's right. If you drive from Tainan's downtown area, it only takes thirty minutes to get there. Why don't we go later? We'll be able to see the beautiful sunset by then. Great! Let's get going. Now, let's review today's vocabulary. Let's review Have you got them all? I've got them all remembered.
