Today we fell a little bit in love with the Rainbow Village near Taichung!
We have never experienced a place so bright and colorful - or with such an unexpected origin. This village wasn’t always painted in rainbow colors. It was actually a veteran village. In 2008 , with only one man still living in the area, the government decided to demolish it. .
The only man still living in the village was known Huang Yong Fu and is now often referred to as Rainbow Grandpa. He decided to paint the whole village! Once the local university and other people heard of his plans they started a petition to save the neighborhood and turn it into a cultural area. .
It worked!! One man saved a village!
We all have the power to make changes bigger than we could ever imagine.
