After another formal night on the ship, our next port was Taipei Taiwan. My mother decided she wanted to sign up as the 'shepherd' on the tour that we booked. Worst idea ever. We were responsible for ensuring that everyone in our group was back on the bus at the appropriate time. It added extra unnecessary stress. There were over 45 people on our tour so it made for an uncoordinated experience. Too many opinions, too many complainers. I wouldn't recommend large tours like that. Our first stop was the Confucius Temple. We watched traditional Taiwanese folk dancing with the fans. The temple itself was rather plain. Very pretty but not as much incense and flowers as the other temples that I saw previously on this trip.
