Random Photos from Taiwan

It’s time for another edition of “Random Photographs from Taiwan.”

Whenever I have a handful of photos and no ideas for a specific post about them, they go into this category.

I guess it’s sort-of a weekly or bi-weekly gallery…

anywho

This first one was taken on my recent four day trip to promote tourism in Taiwan.  Most of the trip I was worried about getting video footage and not photos, but when whenever we had a few minutes to take some goofy pictures, we did.

Tainan, Taiwan 台南台灣

Tainan, Taiwan (台南台灣) is a beautiful city in southern Taiwan.  It one of Taiwan’s favorites as it has a nice climate and warm people.  It’s also full of historical sites.

It’s the only one of Taiwan’s big cities that I’ve never visited so I thought I make a visit during the Chinese New Year break.  I only spent about a day there but got to see most of the major sites and thought I’d share a few of the pictures:

Taiwan was once governed by the Dutch.  They built several forts in Tainan to help control the occasional uprisings.  Chihkan Tower 赤崁樓 (Fort Provintia) was built in 1653 and traded rulers hands several times over the centuries before being recently restored.
