Hongkong and Taiwan 🔒

A short vist to Hong Kong and Taiwan to meet old friends and enjoy the local food. I flew to Taiwan where I met Dickson and took far too many pictures of the high rise buildings. From there I had a short flight to Taiwan / Kaohsiung where I met Joy and enjoy a lot of the famous food on their night markets and sea food restaurants.
