( These are what made us come : the rocks. Cisingtan's beach only has pebbles )
We gave Cisingtan another go today. Took a cab ( 170NT) to the pebble beach for its unique scenery.
We walked along the bike track, passed 48 High Grounds and reached the halfway in 2 hours. We realised we had forgotten to backtrack at Cisingtan to the Katsuo Museum and a Taiwanese saw us studying the map and gave us a lift back to point zero, not after giving us a little tour in his car. What a fantastic experience with a hospitable Taiwanese!
A wonderful time at katsuo museum, some very expensive seafood lunch (970NT for 3 little dishes ) at a nearby restaurant, then we walked for an hour from Cisingtan towards Huasi Road. We caught a cab some point after the HL university ( 150NT ) and went downtown ( 85C) for tea break. Not yet defeated, we walked back to the minsu at Haibin Rd for a late afternoon nap!

By evening, completely refreshed, we went to the nearest Barbecue Shop and stuffed ourselves silly with satay and all grilled meat that cost half of our lunch, to reward ourselves for the day's walking.
Another great day today! Taiwanese friendliness is so refreshing I think they are the ones that make their landscape unique!
Our dinner place in Hualien : a hearty dinner at incredible price ->
