Photos of Kaohsiung, Jungle Hill, Interesting Signs, etc

18 Jun

Fruit and ice cream on ice with bean soup all for $3.70

 

We finally explored this hill. The path was a steep incline, and we passed by an elderly couple plodding along despite the heat and difficulty

The famous temple in Chaiyi (near where I toured the public school)

 

Harbor area of Kaohsiung

On High Speed Rail to Chaiyi and then Kaohsiung for two interviews!

Kaohsiung Skyline as I was jumping into the water from the ferry.

full moon in Kaohsiung from our ferry

toilet ice cream (the ice cream comes in a piece of plastic shaped like a sqatty toilet, not the toilet we're used to)

Warning: Don't Stand on the Toilet... especially if you can't yet walk on the ground. This warning comes from the fact that there are so many squatty toilets and they are worried some people will stand on the other toilets.

 

Carrie stays hydrated

The Taiwanese are very concerned with proper hygiene. How to use the water fountain, how to sneeze properly (it involves wearing those surgical masks) are explained in signs around town.

    When I edit this, I’ll make it so that the captions show up for each photo.
