Day 5! A Mad Rush; but one of the Two Most Memorable Experiences^^
Received morning call at 0330, and pickup was to be at 0350. Rushed like crazy in order to go down on time, but Ms Xu did not appear till 0415. She killed the alarm, overslept, and she got lost finding our hostel. Luckily for us, she was apparently the only one driver who would …

During the break between the 2 schools, they took us to the nearby Pineapple Cake Factory. Pineapple cakes are famous here in Taiwan, and this region is famous for making them.
