Last day in Kaohsiung

My final day in Kaohsiung was a busy one. In the morning I visited the famous Fo Guan Shan temple on the side of a mountain with its thousands of Buddha images. Back in the city for lunch and an extremely large portion of vegetarian dumplings. Next I headed to the university where I borrowed a motorcycle and took off on my own to do some shopping. I couple of hours later, when they were all worried I was lost, I returned to the university. Then I was taken to the department store by Prof David Yang who very kindly bought me some Taiwanese tea to bring back to England. By this time the sun was beginning to set which marked the beginning of my last night in Kaohsiung and therefore the last chance to fill my belly with delicious snacks. It was a very special night which included dinner at the night market, drinks at the former British Consulate overlooking the harbour, a motorcycle ride halfway up a mountain, soya dessert at another night market, and finally, mango by the lotus lake. I returned home very late and set my alarm for 6am to pack my bags ready for the journey up to Taipei.
