|A wild turkey in Taiwan. Very noisy!|
I was going to Chiayi to see my friend, Amanda. I met Amanda in Luxembourg after my 10 hour train ride on Christmas Eve. We bonded over a hatred of our Russian room mate and love of Taiwan. She invited me to come back to Taiwan and visit her and my room mate Michael and I took her up on the offer.
|In Chiayi with friends!|
We got to Chiayi a little later than we planned. The Chiayi HSR station is located about 20 minutes outside the town of Chiayi and then we had to wait about 20 minutes for the free shuttle bus to Chiayi main town. So, we got there late... We felt bad about it! We were going to have a driver for the day. New Friends Wilson and his girlfriend Miranda (I hope I am spelling her name right!!) along with old friend Amanda were going to take us on the great Chiayi Road Trip!!!
Chiayi is famous for Turkey and Rice. I did not know there were so many turkeys in Taiwan! We had wild turkeys at our hostel the day before flying in trees and making scary noises at sun rise! This meal was very yummy and highly recommended!

We had fun walking and talking and looking at nature. Then we got back in the car and went to the Lake, which is famous for being a lake, according to Wilson. Stupid question, stupid answer...
|Kite flying at the Lake!|
There were many people there walking, taking in the fresh air, flying kites and walking dogs. There was even one lady walking a cat!!! We were flying a kite! I haven't flown a kite in years. Some people were very good at flying the kites. My favorite kite was the one that looked like a squid! It was very funny!!! We flew kites, ate ice cream and Miranda bought a bubble gun which was pretty fun!
|My squid kite! So cute!|
Later Michael and I totally cheated the HSR train system to Taipei to make our hostel reservation... But that's another story...
