2010-05-06 Lanyu, Orchid Island, Taiwan--Special tour in Lanyu: Eco-Tour at Night and A visit to traditional house  印象分數:100印象分數:100印象分數:100印象分數:100印象分數:100

Taking photos is sensitive to Taos, especially when it comes to festivals, traditional house, canoes, etc. With extremely luck, we were invited to private living house of the owner of accommodation.

Underground private housing Look the roof~~

拍照對達悟人好像很不吉利,很多事物都禁止拍照,尤其人像和傳統屋還有一些祭典。幸運的我們,得到民宿主人的邀請去他的私密主屋。

These stones are special seats only for elderly to take rest.(Below)

Visitors should make voices from throat to remind politely host their visits. The door was so small that one needs to bow before entering and crawl to pass through. And we did for showing our respect to the host and got into their kitchen and bedroom in the same space. Kitchen is on the one side while the bedroom is the opposite. Backwards is place where they smoked skipjacks. I guessed the Taos might love skipjacks so deeply that they want to smell them during sleep. On the roof hang corns from sheep, fishes, and pigs as decorations. Sitting in small space, I thought their ancestors did have simple and fulfilling lives. For me, it is impossible to survive in traditional houses of the Tao because I will run out for fresh sea winds and brightly natural world all the time.

輕咳提醒有訪客,且人都必須彎下腰肢才能進入。早時廚房和睡房是同一空間,後方就是煙燻飛魚的地方,屋上掛滿羊角豬骨魚骨當裝飾,睡覺是弓身側彎在充滿飛魚味道的房間,佩服佩服能在此居住的達悟祖先阿~我一定是選擇睡涼亭的怪人。


Otus elegans, looking like small-sized owl, is considered as evils by the Taos. Why? Because any Otus elegan shows up in the village, some people will die. They are representation of evils and death. But those cute little Otus elegans play vital roles in ecosystem so tracing them at night has become popular activities in Lanyu recently. Our leader, the owner of accommodation, took us into dark lush forest and sounded “Do~~~Do~~~” for attracting larger ones and “YA~” for smaller one. Wandering around dark towering trees with spot light was quite refreshing and unique. We watched our steps carefully and helped each others. While our leader pay attention on looking for cute Otus elegans, I looked up for amazingly sparkling sky appearing between leaves. As I was touched by the charms of universe, Otus elegans showed up on branches far from us and lookd at us through spot lights. It seemed we can hold this lovely creature in our hands. “Hello~Hello~” Oh~ NO! I should communicate with it in its language. Shout “Do~Do~” or “Ya~Ya~” at will, sending message of our surprise. It flew away and disappeared suddenly, just like a mysterious event for me. With several ups and downs, we backed starting points magically, which made us awe and admired our leader not only great in the ocean but also skillful in mountains. Was this the end of Eco-Tour at Night? Not Yet!

夜觀角鴞,是蘭嶼特殊夜間活動。幸運再次降臨,民宿主人李哥自發領著我們進入暗黑森林找角鴞,DODO~~YA~~我們學著角鴞的語言,誘引他們出現,探照燈一打,手掌大小的角鴞可愛的站在遙遠樹枝上看著我們,超像小型貓頭鷹,好~可~愛~但在達悟族人眼中,他們是惡魔的化身,一旦一隻角鴞飛到村落里,就表示有人會去世。看了兩三隻角鴞後,李哥神奇的東繞西繞就回到起點,果真是山之子阿~

This are dolls of Otus elgenans

Led to rocky shoreline, we jump among rocks changing from coral reefs to appreciate magic shows of tidal flat performed by our leader. He walked back and forth among beaches and waves and then brought handful active creatures including crabs, red fish, two shrimps and even a snake long as our arms. We couldn’t help but clap for him when he displayed them one by one. He is indeed a man of sea and mountain. Bravely I touched each performer with curiosity. The feeling of the snake is slippery and cool. Holding the red fish leaping up and down is interesting—I could feel its heart beating and breathes. The shrimps and crabs looked tasty while some of them were forbidden to eat. By the way, their eyes are deep black and maybe could speak, I thought. Thanks for their excellent performance and we set them free as ending of magic shows. Good bye~ See you next time!

滿天的星空,閃爍著;站在礁岩上的我們看著李哥,像老大東走走西看看,走向我們,開始神奇的魔術秀!第一位,向手一樣長的海蛇,接下來小紅魚一隻、蝦子、母蟹公蟹,潮間帶默默熱鬧阿。我勇敢的摸海蛇,滑溜冰涼,手裡捧著小紅魚,在我手掌裡呼吸跳動,李哥自動把蝦子螃蟹都放進來,挖啊啊~超奇妙興奮。雖然小紅魚可以在水面上撐半小時,我們還是開心的放他們回去海洋的懷抱,掰掰~
