Taiwan Trip ’09 -=Day 29=-

After class we went to 中正紀念堂 (C.K.S. Memorial Hall) to have a look, which was only like a 10 minute walk from 古亭 (GuTing):

Okay I should mention that, C.K.S. stands for Chiang Kai-Set who was an old president of Taiwan and one of the founding fathers of Taiwan I believe. So this one is the big memorial for him (also the place they had the protests last year). The other hall was for a founding father too.

 

Another long shot :P
