Today, I start my 3 day cycling journey from Hua-lien to another city south of the country called Taitung. The approximate distance between the two cities is 170 km.

Asked the hostel girl where I could find a buffet, and there was one about 15min away, so ate there two times for a 80NT buffet of 3 vegetables plus rice and a pork chop.
