    Day 5: 淡水 Tamshui - Taipei, Taiwan



    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....
