|Bao still enjoyed kids' meal in the plane then. The paper plane she was holding was from the kids' set. She was all chubby and rounded then!|
|Reached Taoyuan international airport at night.|
It was sunny in Taipei on our first day. The view of the pier is quite nice.
Next, to the nearby 淡水老街. It is an old and charming little village facing the sea.
There we had our first taste of Taipei street food. At the recommendation of the local guide, we tried the 阿给noodles with meatballs which we didn't quite like. We also had grilled squid which I like very much. And there we bought the "iron egg"which Bao like.
|Old sea front pavement full of little shops with small eatery. A foot long ice cream during the winter.|
|Dear Mr Soldier, did u just blink your eyes??|
|Too glaring and hot .|
After the bath was the Monument of Dr Sun Yet-sen. I remember we took a lift up to the hall where there was another round of changing of guards. This is just a monument for the National Father of ROC then, unlike the one we went in Nanjing, Zhongshan Ling, which is the actual burial site.
|Look how mischievous she was!|
|Inside the hall, The statue of Dr Sun.|
In the morning, we were at 九族文化村. It's quite a big park with some rides. Sadly, we were given very limited time. The guide took us in the cable car to the top where we walked among the replica of the tribes' houses. There wasn't any time for the rides at all!
|At the entrance.|
|The Cultural village of the 9 tribes.|
|It was sunning and hot then.|
|The Wenwu temple across the lake.|
|From the top of the temple, the lake looks quite ordinary.|
|In the super VIP coach, it was quite comfortable.|
