#33 Chinese Graffiti
#32 Bamboo Shoot
If you have never seen bamboo growing, it is truly amazing. The second photo shows early bamboo growth, called bamboo shoots. These shoots have a soft inside that is used for cooking. When the bamboo grows taller, it begins to dry up and eventually becomes hallow inside. In Taiwan, bamboo is everywhere...from the food on your table to the floor under your feet. They make almost any kind of furniture you can think of out of bamboo and even use it to make giant billboards on the highway.
