New Friends, New Places

Our friend introduced us to her god-brother in Taipei. He and his wife are very friendly and hospitable, and drove us around to scenic spots near Keelung in north-east Taiwan, places not easily accessible by public transit. The scenery along Hwy 2 on the Pacific coast is very beautiful, with places you can recognize in movies sets and TV drama. Here are some photos:

As Keelung is a seaport its specialty is seafood.

We tried many new foods, including this Taiwanese specialty we can't even pronounce.
