A Day Excursion in Northern Taiwan  Jan. 10, 2003
Yeliu, Jinsan, Tamshui, Guandu, and dinner in Taipei

In the morning, Polong & his son David, with David's brand new Cambry, picked us up at the hotel in Taipei. We went through Keelung and rode along the seashore to Yeliu for lunch.  After the lunch, we visited Ju Ming's Art Museum (朱銘) in the mountains, and Glass Arts Museum in Guantu 關渡. We also stopped by the newly established Fishman's Seaside Park 漁人碼頭  in Tamshui. We then rushed back to Taipei, through heavy evening traffics,  to attend a dinner with several Vincent's cousins.
