Yesterday was the Dragon Boat Festival. So, it was a public holiday for us here in Taiwan! Yea!!
Sam took the above photo last year when he and I went to watch the races on Love River in Kaohsiung City. Sam also took some awesome video of the races, but I can't find it right now. If I do locate it, I will upload and share.
In addition to racing dragon boats, people enjoy eating "jong tz" or "sticky rice dumplings" . . . neither phrase tells you what these things are, right? :)
Basically "jong tz" are triangles of sticky rice stuffed with meat and mushrooms and then wrapped in bamboo leaves.
Here is a mosaic I made using one of my student's photos that she took of her mother making "jong tz." [Thanks for sharing, Larina. ;)]
Can you identify all the items below that are put inside the "sticky rice dumplings"?
