Got to the hostel and the nice owner took me across the alley to the market for a buffet. Then I rode the MRT to Lotus Pond, ate some Beef Noodle soup, the went to the harbour area where there was Bikertopia going on... a motorcycle conference with a giant stage of music and spotlighting after dark, but no band.... just local bike club guys driving the bikes on stage with little scantily clad taiwanese girls waving their flags from the back seat.

Saturday started off nice and slowly. After our first exposure to true teacher life at our relevant branches the last few days, we felt we had earned a good rest! But also keen to explore our new home, and I was also personally very happy to be feeling much better and able to get out and about, we made plans to visit the Confucius temple.
The Confucius temple in Tainan is the oldest Confucius temple in Taiwan. Students at Chong Xue were always very surprised when they heard that ...
