Grandparents' medicine shop

My grandparents run a home medicine shop in Chiayi. They are actually farmers, and running the medicine shop has always been more or less like a hobby. They are both now too old to keep working in farm, but running the medicine shop is still a hobby. Both the farm and the medicine are part of the heritage of the family.

My grandma is preparing the medicine.


The medicine is paste-like and prepared on a piece of cloth to be applied to a joint.

My grandpa posed for me, but I didn't take a good photo...
