Had too much food on my Taiwan trip...that's not a good thing. My stomach started burning just like the last time I went to Taiwan. Luckily, I didn't start puking. It only burned and was unable to walk at times when it did. So, I walked super slow through out the day and no more eating for me.
We came to Tamshui~ Wanted to see the Fort San Domingo. We started off at the Tamshui Station and walked through the market.
Then walked along the water. My stomach was killing me. I had to sit down on a bench every few minutes, making the trip super slow. I thought of heading back to the hotel to rest for the day...but the other me kept telling me not to waste my trip to Taiwan. I just can't allow myself to rest when I am on vacation...which kind of loses the point of a "vacation"....
The day was just as gloomy as how I felt....very grey. The wind kept blowing on my face and the humid air didn't make things any better. I looked like a ghost. So, I didn't take any pictures of myself.
There are little streets here and there to take pics of and a little time for me to rest. By the time I got to Fort San Domingo, it was 5pm...which was the closing time!!! I didn't realize it would close that early! All the walking for NOTHING! I was so upset. I got there, only to see the gate close in front of me.
Didn't want to give up, I walked around to see if I can find a place where I can get a glimpse of the place. Then came to a university where my cousin studies at...which is just behind Fort San Domingo on a hill. We thought maybe we can get a glimpse of it from up high~
Quite a nice looking university...in the middle of nowhere. Turns out we couldn't see any of the Fort San Domingo at the university...It was getting late and time to head back~
The night view along the water is nice.
Maybe next time, when I come to Taiwan again, I will be able to visit the Fort San Domingo....
