Flashback Friday: 2002 Kinmen, Taiwan

From our trip to Kinmen (Quemoy), a small island off the coast of Taiwan. It was one of the major places Chinese immigrants came from, and the successful ones returned and used their earnings to construct showy Chinese-Western fusion houses like this one. The tower is partially defensive: to scan for pirates (a constant problem until the modern era).
