Tinkerbell Legacy - Living with a flying parrot

First day back in Taipei
shanlung
We got up early even if not as early as we wanted to.

The morning was dark and grey and gloomy looking. But that was more a description of the sky. Not the feeling of the heart. Taiwan had this incredible hold on both me and my wife hearts. Even before the coming of Tinkerbell into our lives, we just love the beauty of this country and the incredible warmth of the people here.

Despite the complimentary breakfast, we had to go out to take our favourite breakfast of salty bean curds and the hsiao lung tang pau ' small dragon soup dumplings' at this old stall near where we lived. Photos and description of that in the last report of Tinkerbell Interlude.

We have many very good friends. It will be quite unforgivable not to see them this time when we were back. As we do have until 13 Jan when we have to fly back, Tinkerbell should not begrudge us a few days.

After breakfast, we went to Kuofu Chinian Guan or Sunyatsen Memorial hall to see my old martial masters doing their taichichuan training. Then we went to the Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world (or maybe the second tallest now). This was being built when I was working in an office block next to it. In the photos of Tinkerbell semi free flights, you could catch glimpse of 101 during that construction phase in 2002.

We then got a local SIM card and called Yu. That we be taking the High Speed train (that I was part of the construction team then) and will be in Chiayi on morning of Sunday. That the Saturday will be spend with a very good friend Chen Hung that I called Lone Ranger in the past
