新年快樂! Happy Chinese New Year

DSCN2492

Chinese New Year is my favorite time of year here in Taiwan.  Everyone leaves the city to visit another city, or relatives in the country.  The world is QUIET.  In a city of 2.6 million people, I can’t hear a thing.  It’s wonderous.  Which brings me to choosing oranges and tangerines, this season’s finest.  I haven’t gotten pictures of all the oranges offered here yet, but let me tell you there are quite a few.  Pictured above is a tangerine with loose skin.  It’s so sweet you’d think they added extra sugar 🙂  My favorite at the moment.  These tangerines are 4-5 in. in diameter, and you want to choose one with no soft spots/discolored spots.  The skin should not be tight to the fruit, but slightly loose.  You’ll see what I mean if you feel a couple.  新年快樂!  Enjoy the silence with some tangerines.
