Taiwan trip – Day 6

Day 6 of Please Let Me Go Back Alive (aka. Taiwan trip 2017)

Today was a pretty hot day.

Or maybe it’s because I left at 12PM?

Anyways, because I wanted to avoid masses of people (It’s a Sunday), I decided not to go to any night markets or popular tourist spots.

So, I went to Sisinanchun.

Sisinanchun is a small little alleyway with a lot of history. History that I can’t write here because I didn’t read the placards in the mini-museum (I know, I suck, but I really am bad with history).

There’s supposed to be a flea market on weekends but for some reason it wasn’t there today.

Then I made my way to the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial.

Just my luck, it was under renovation.

Ahh…men in uniforms…

 

They did all these fancy gun twirlings and stuff but to be really honest I think the guard rotation in front of Kyeongbokgun palace in Korea is better (Korean pride YASSS).

Afterwards I did what any good Korean tourist would do and went to Carrefour.

I dunno it’s a vending machine that squeezes fresh orange juice how cool is that!

 

Today is the last day of resting for me, starting tomorrow I’m gonna get busy again!
