After we said good bye to Jason, hugged him and almost cryed ;) - we picked up the luggage from the hostel and were about to catch the high-speed-train to Kaohsiung. We still had some time, but for some reason we were sooner than needed at the platform entrance, then they said us, 'the train is broken' - and we had no clue what does could mean... so we insisted to answer and what we were supposed to do now, and at that time some weird camera man from some TV station recorded us, so i was pissed off that they don't tell us what to do and where to go and i asked to that guy - "maybe you tell us what we are going to do here?" and he was just like "mhm" and left us coz i kept asking him hahahaha - so probably we were on the taiwanese TV - news on that day when the HSR broke. Then we got from the station staff an regular ticket for the local train - they told us finally to catch the train for the next station of HSR - which was Bonqiao to got on our train, and so we did. Fortunatelly a taiwanese girl/woman helped us, coz we didnt understood the anouncements said in chinese there.
