This colorful village looks like it belongs in the pages of a storybook, but it”s actually the work of a 90-year-old war veteran. Once dilapidated housing for soldiers, the small Taichung, Taiwan, community is covered in whimsical rainbow paintings. Huang Yongfu, who began painting only to kill time, has transformed the area into one of Taiwan”s most loved tourist attractions.
