Day 6 - Wulai
Mr. Yeh and Alex picked us up at 10 am and we were off to Wulai. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Wulai is set by this amazing waterfall, Taiwan's largest. To get to the hotel/restaurant, we had to cross the river valley by gondola...this was much scarier looking than it actually ended up being.
Once at the other side, we hiked up to the top and had lunch...yummy food. We had a beef dish, a pork dish, some veggies, and some bamboo fruit of some kind. After lunch, we walked around and did the ropes course...well, Todd and Alex did anyway...although I did go over the rip line, with Tessa strapped to me even! :)
Then, Todd tried his hand at archery and paint ball. Alex was shooting archery with Todd and at that point I decided I was switching tribes...Todd was not bringing home the game! LOL!
Back down the gondola and over to the aboriginal show we went. Interesting. VERY, very loud. And note to other families...babies can't go in the show due to the noise, and it was an hour long, so keep that in mind. I had a hard time leaving Tessa with Mr. Yeh.
Overall, fun day. Amazing scenery. Taiwan is truly a very beautiful island. We've been surprised and impressed with all the mountains and greenery.
