In the middle of the summer, we took a trip south. It was a time to give my parents a break and it was also a time for us to make a change in our routine. While visiting our extended family, it was necessary for our kids to be “nice” and to behave themselves. Although they got a lot of attention from our parents and other friends and family members, they were never really alone. A train ride south would give us a change. We had some friends to visit and one wedding to attend, and even more scenic spots to visit. Taiwan, in 1978, had wonderful train service, We certainly enjoyed our ride south to Kaoshung. It was only about four hours ride, Margaret got her rest and Steven got some sleep, I got some pictures of our train ride.
