The interesting thing about Tainan is the fingerprints of European influence throughout the city. We were walking around and wondering: am I in Spain? Europe? or Taiwan?

You can’t tell from here, but Diane, Jedrek, Oliver, Matt and I climbed a short tower to get a better view of the sunset. This is my *I’m freaking out heights* smile.

Tainan is known for its food! Lots of sweeter tasting dishes. Yum!
