Nomadic Gatherings: Chapter Three: Little Sister.
Taiwan was a brief stop en-route from Seoul to Hong Kong.
They found it amusing that I was heading for China.
Arrival in Taiwan:
At a local food-stall, the lady showed me the price of an omelette by pulling two coins from her pocket. I only had notes, so I gave her the smallest.
2. Tainan - Oldest City in Tawian:
Tainan is the oldest city on the island of Taiwan, and was the capital between 1663 and 1885. A shrine and fort have been restored to mark those glory days.
3. Chungshan Park:
Old men, loving couples and young children wanted nothing more than escape the heat and noise, to relax in the sheltered serenity of Chungshan Park.
4. Bus Travel in
I wanted to see Alishan, Taiwan's most popular mountain resort, on my way back to Taipei.
5. Travel To Chiayi:
Heading to Alishan can mean a change in Chiayi but bus connections in Taiwan don't always run to plan.
6. Bus to Taipei:
Passengers reclined in their seats with papers open on their laps, but apparently not being read. As heads rocked gently, I looked for life beyond the glass.
In a restaurant in Taipei one of the five waitresses was able to translate the Chinese menu, then returned to talk a little after she had placed my order.
