Greetings from Taichung

 Asia By Bennyb
April 30th 2007This is our second port in tawian. This is the port that back in 1988 there were over 27,000 visitors in one day. Now that is crazy. I not so sure if we are going to make it again this visit but it does sure seem busy. We have seen alot of people so far and it seems busy but 27,000 is ALOT of people to come visit. Anywho enjoy the pics !

We had the chance to go hiking in the mountains. It was so cool. The trail was straight up the side of the mountain. It was a hard and tough hike but really cool. Later I found out that the hike was a 2 km vertical climb. No wonder it was so hard.
