An old arched doorway in Anping (安平), in the old Chinese city, not far from Fort Zeelandia (安平古堡), Tainan, Taiwan. This archway has now been demolished, along with the house to which it belonged. It is sad that so much of Tainan's traditional architecture is being destroyed. Photograph by Andrea Artuso Andrade, 2002.
