The police guest house offered us a very special  experience. Frankly ,comepared with  another guesthouse which we will stay  5 days after,  it  was not a comfortable staying .well, 9 euro for a stay in the weekend , what do we expect ...  

We got a very early night last night, it was very funny to wake bear up,  Simon was getting better today^ ^.... COFFEE.... yess..after a quick shower ,filled the hot water , we heading to travel center.. and find a good place for coffee ....by the way,  it was the first time that Simon met taiwanes  wuntun noodles... oh!!! the sky still very low and gray, thought it would be a day can see nothing ....i was worry  about it... maybe we have to change our  plan.

i love this face... sooo funny like a cartoon!! always makes me laughing
.. maybe we need to down to the South .coast because of the weather... anyway , let's  cross the central mountains first.. 

Taiwan is a mountainous island situated in a subtropical zone. ..the tropic of cancer cuts through the middle of the island, dividing the temperate and tropical climates zone , because of the southwest airflows and typhoon (tropical storm) in the summer and the seasonal winds in the winter , together with the diversified topographic features... Taiwan is quite famous for offering the tourists  an envirment which inclunding  special and various  ecology , amazing geographical features and cultural heritage .....

Road 21 is one of the way cross the west side of the central mountains , in addition, there are many many wild macaques living here.

... it is the part that Simon wnats to see it.... he has never seen the wild monkeys before,  after i telling him that how naughty the wild monkeys are, and monkeys do really enjoy the hot bath in JP , he can not wait to see them..... hahha....  today is monkey day ... i hope the weather on the top of it is better then Alishan....i

Unfortunately , it was even worth when we arrived Tataka (2610 meter ).. . i drived in the fog,  we can see nothing.... only the Midnight oil's tracks accompanies us....   well..... it would be a very  good reason to invite you come here again....i told Simon....

we stop in the Sun Moon lake ..... a quick shot and some food ,we heading to  CingJing... road 16's condition is not very good.

... i had drived on mountain road with bad vision  for 6 hours ... i felt tired... and the fog was getting heavy .... we decided stop in a hostel near chingjing...

Actually, it was a fantastic stay, very nice hostel with amazing view .... we had a hot bath and massage  then into a very good sleep ...

when we wake up at next day.... oh ya.... the sun was comming out,  nmm... fresh air... both of us were enjoying the  breath taking moment ....  

do you miss the mountains?  i asked him

yes, i have long time not seen the mountains ... i do miss it... 

both of us are islanders... we do love the mountains and see...  

hey... i got a plan... maybe we can do see side road when we are in East coast... i am sure you will like it ....

so.. after 2 days waiting , the sun comes out , the road gets clear... ...
