In honor of leaving for Taiwan in 15 days… I thought I would post pics from my trip to Hong Kong and Taiwan from the Summer of 2004. The first stop on this trip was Hong Kong… to call the place hot in June would be an understatement… but there was a lot of stuff to do at least:
The streets are alive with lots of people who want to sell you stuff:
You can find comfort knowing that you are not too far from your favorite Western brands:
It’s nice to find some peace and quiet away from all the people:
Catherine poses, also pictured: other people posing for their respective friends:
The view from Cathy’s sister’s place:
You didn’t get the memo? I am too cool for Hong Kong!
A picture of the HK skyline, how cool is this?
Now we jump the Straits and visit Taiwan! Our first stop, the town of Jhongsing Village in central Taiwan:
Catherine poses with the flowers:
What’s traffic like in Nantou?
What about these Night Markets I keep hearing about… are there games to play? Of course!
Trying to win a can of Apple Cidra:
After my success at winning a can of Apple Cidra… I thought I would try to win some goldfish:
Central Taiwan has some cool hiking trails:
So what’s going on in Taichung? A couple pictures of Donghai University’s campus:
A typhoon is coming!
There’s a ton of stuff to do in Taipei and northern Taiwan, such as eat:
So many choices:
When you aren’t eating… you can go to the Sun Yet-Sen Memorial Hall:
While you’re at it go to the Chiang Kai-Shek family garden:
Cathy poses with her grandfather:
This is my new friend:
Cathy and I in Taipei… my shirt is so awesome:
In Northern Taiwan:
More pictures coming upon my return in a couple weeks when I search for employment teaching English in Taiwan…
