"Want to camping?", they asked.
"It is mmmm... I don't know how say...He Wan SaN...3 tall mountain in Taiwan."
"Cool! Let's go!"
So you take a bus with a bunch of kids, parents, and their teachers just 3 hours north and hit 14.

Unload from the bus and walk to your campsite.

Star Party 2008
There were so many amazingly huge telescopes&things....people with their laptops and high tech stuff....
But honestly, the best view of the stars could be seen from this homemade telescope....from Lan Tan Elementary School. I lined up at least 3 times to see the stars from this one.

Ah well this girl was lucky in love...

Although the night before there was another engagement and the dude set up a slide show showing them at the star party since 2005 and then there were fireworks! What the engagment! It was sweet enough to make one shed a tear or two.
Alas I was lucky to see such beauty...
