We brought the Kindle along for this leg of our trip, and we didn’t know how we managed to survive without it all this while.
We loaded up the pdf version of Lonely Planet Philippines and Taiwan and literally felt a weight lifted off our shoulders. Other than that, it was also an excellent companion for those long long bus rides when one of us falls into a deep coma.
After the day of temple running, there was basically nothing much left for us to do in Tainan, so we decided to just hang out at some of the cafes found around our hostel.
Somehow, we wandered 8km away to the Fort City of Anping (安平) where we were supposed to look for Fort Zeelandia (熱蘭遮城) (yup, there’s a Dutch fort in the centre of Tainan), but ended up at the Eternal Golden City (億載金城) instead. (We decided to take a break from directions for the day as well)
ls it bad that we found the trees in the Eternal City more charming than the cannons?
I mean, these trees are practically begging us to sit under them and spend the afternoon reading away.
