Taiwan Free and Easy (Day 3)

Day 3 (10 Apr, Thursday) ~ Kaohsiung, 29°C Sunny

We got to slow down our plan today as Jasz was not feeling well, initially we suspect the stinking beancurd last night, but for me got no any symptom…

Take cab from hotel to buy some medicine at Liuho 2 road (street of Liuho Night Market). The sensei found out is because of gastric pain… All the while Jasz have no gastric problem, even though we got so much doubt, but no choice have to try out the medicines.

Cancelled our Kenting trip and decided to stay at Kaohsiung city instead…
