Day 4 with Tiffany included a trip back across the island. But, first we took a few pictures at the hotel. Taiwan's aboriginal people live on the east coast. We were staying in the PaiWan Tribe area. There are 12 different aboriginal tribes in Taiwan in addition to the Taiwanese (Hokkien) people, Hakka people, and Mainlanders.
We took the afternoon "off" and rested a bit. Then for dinner, we had DimSum with Larina and her parents in downtown Kaohsiung.
Of course we rode our mopeds there. Although their backsides ached a little from the trip, they truly enjoyed the experience and the night scenes here.
Then, the best part of the day happened!! We went to a Taiwanese night market!! If you have not been to a night market while in Taiwan, you haven't really been to Taiwan. ;)
We were kinda full when we got there, but still we tried some new things . . . like "tea in a bag" and a chocolate covered frozen banana.
And, we played some "night market games" too!
And, did some shopping and lots of just looking at new stuff.
But, perhaps their favorite part of the whole night was "fishing" for turtles with tissue paper hoops. The paper gets wet and breaks so it is not an easy feat at all. But, Tiffany got four and Rebecca got two. I was impressed!! So, now there are turtles living in my home too.
Our night market trip was thanks to Andy, who was our awesome tour guide!
