Hi folks,

I uploaded photos of that SCIH , or
SC Country
Highway
. Both those terms are interchangable to me. I
know that as Nan Heng Gong Lu, which in Chinese is the
basis of the above english names
.

In looking through my photos, I found I took some of
that Tropic of Cancer monuments. I even relented and
uploaded that latest ugly montrosity, but that was
taken way before. That is the first photo. Not all
the monuments to that TOC were photoed. It seemed to
me every 15 years or so, some Governor would decide to
erect one so his name would be immortalised.

In this trip from the other side done in autumn 2003,
I had wanted to cross to the West. But rain and bad
weather and getting lost conspired to abort that. We
stopped short of crossing that pass to the Western
side. You understand that I do not have that much
time to write a more complete account. Even as at
now, Tinkerbell is calling to be let out of her cage.

When I think of it, it's amazing that I succeeded on
foot what I failed to do driving a car. But then, 15
years or so ago, I probably would have done well in
those Iron Man contest. Pity they did not have them
back then.

Sorry folks,

I was on the Western side of
Taiwan trying to cross to
the Eastern side.

My brain synapses crossed.

Guess that is natural from a guy who looked West
hoping to catch the sunrise
