Yesterday, I took the Taiwanese High Speed Rail from Taichung - Kaohsiung. These trains travel an incredible 300km/hr, and are the 10th fastest in the world.
Then, I took this other, slightly slower, train around Kaohsiung's Pier 2 arts district. And children everywhere stared on with intense jealousy.
Not pictured here: me falling off the train twice (the mini one, not the high speed one).
