Monday - Boring big city, Chiayi, hitched road 18 to "teeming fish valley", which is good,but spoiled by tourist dance show.



The reestored valley rich in fishes Stranded in the mountain mists about to camp when a bus appeared and led to whole new series of adventures. At Shihjhuo an indigenous town. I met Iwan the hospital administrator and he showed me to the hotel.



Tues- view from the train


Tuesday - Eventually I got to the Alishan Mountain Forest Park - it was a bit disappointing as often before I saw stumps of huge trees and only a few remaining, I was thinking how amazing it must have been 100 years ago when the whole area was covered with huge trees. There is only 1 train a day down It was a difficult to decision whether to leave after only 3 hours. The only other option was to hang around for another day ..the afternoons are all misty and I wanted to meet up with Lui Song
