Tired before the touring day begins?
Were we all tired today!
It was just day 2 of our Taipei, Taiwan tour.
We planned to visit Yehliu ocean world, Keelung and Pingxi railway scenic area today.. It would be lunchtime when we reached Keelung. We might not have ample time to explore too many places..
Let us leave out Pingxi first, and play by ear as we go along. Shall we? :-)
