Fun in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

We arrived in Taiwan, got off the plane from Japan and were pleased to be able to kick off our boots and coats, get out the sandals and teeshirts and start a new adventure.
We had never heard of Kaohsiung, but it is right at the bottom of Taiwan, and we have ten days to get to Taipei which is at the top of the country, and catch our flight out.
That makes it sound a bit like a military manoeuvre, but it is actually going to be a happy dawdle around with a few train and bicycle rides thrown in.

We started our day with a walk around the old port area and disused train sidings.

It has all been turned into a open air sculpture park and in the evenings the tracks light up.
Next we caught the ten minute ferry to an island across the bay, and found that they hired out electric bikes. Daz was a bit of a crazy driver, but we made it to the lighthouse, Fort, cave and lots of interesting sculptures along the seafront.

Back on the mainland we were a bit hot and tired, but after a stop for the local speciality, a giant shaved ice, condensed milk, chocolate and fruit desert, we were raring to go again.
