Taiwan: Day Tour Of Kaohsiung

Shortly after 9:30 a.m. a very nervous Mr. Wu picked us up in his SUV. His English is not as strong as Bill Wang's, whose English is not as strong as Lau's English. We find out that Mr. Wu is a graduate of the Taiwan naval academy, but that his career was in the infantry. We gather he is now retired, and whatever time he says he spent in Pomona California did not really improve his English.

We have only a vague idea of most of what we saw, but we reinforced our impression that Kaohsiung is quite a lovely city.
We drove by two of the late President Chiang Kai-shek's residences but chose not to go inside. We did catch a glimpse of the old presidential Packard (?) parked in the garage.
We also saw groups of school children and other tourists eager to visit the same sites.
