Taichung’s Rainbow Village is a place you have to see in person. Built as cheap houses for soldiers in the 1940s, these buildings were in the process of being torn down. The few that were left were saved by a retired soldier named Huang Yung-fu. As the last person living there, Huang started painting the empty village to pass the time. He created bright, colorful pictures of animals, airplanes, manga characters, and more. Local university students took notice, and before long, the village was getting visitors and was saved from being torn down. The next time you are in Taichung, stop by and appreciate the beautiful art.

臺中的彩虹村(又名彩虹眷村)是你必須親身走訪的地方。這些專為軍人建造的廉價房舍於四○年代興建,不久前面臨被拆除的命運。僅存的少數房舍被一位退休榮民黃永阜保住。作為最後一位居住者,黃永阜開始彩繪無人住的眷村來打發時間。他創作出色彩鮮明的動物、飛機以及漫畫人物等的畫作。當地的大學生注意到這種狀況,不久之後這個彩繪村有了遊客,也逃過了被拆除的命運。下一次到臺中時,不妨稍作停留來欣賞這些美麗的藝術。
