KYU dinner, dorm room, settle in

Kao Yuan Unversity, Taiwan


2007-07-09 16:00. Arrived at KYU (Kao Yuan University 高苑科技大學)

2007-07-09 22:52. Gecko sighted.

First day of the tour. After being picked up at Gang Shan slow rail station I arrived at KYU (Kao Yuan University 高苑科技大學) for check-in and payment of the NT$ 6 500 fee. No events on this day because KYU staff, counsellors are still busy picking up people from all over the world arriving at different times and different locations. Must be a logistical nightmare. Events and the journey around this island will actually start tomorrow. Nice welcome packages with towels and even metal chopsticks found in our rooms.

Amazed to see that all the counsellors were wearing jeans. I still think it is too hot in Taiwan to wear jeans.

Watched a gecko quickly dart up a wall, something I don't think I've seen before in person.
