We have just arrived in Tainan. Our original plans were to take a train from Hualien around the southern part of Taiwan to Tainan. But the typhoon that hit Taiwan last month damaged the railway in some sections and the Railway Administration was predicting months before the train would be able to travel that route. So we decided to return to Taipei via train then transfer to the High Speed Rail for our trip to Tainan. It took about three hours on the train and one hour, 45 minutes on the high speed rail. This is where our son is living in an orphanage. We will meet him on Thursday. Our adoption agency has arranged a half-day tour of Tainan on Wednesday, and we are looking forward to dinner tonight with a friend who lives here.
