He is back. The one who used to explore Sirius and travel around the world like the ancient Chinese traveler XU Xia-Ke, the crane cremator with flaming eyes is back. He said that Xizi Bay would be his final resting place. Having planted deep roots in Kaohsiung, YU Guang-Zhong recites poetry to elementary student, climbs the stone lion by the gateway to an old village at Huishan, and shouts into and old well in a childishly playful manner.
