I ran the half in the Tainan Old Capital Marathon today. Before and after we stopped by a few places in Kaohsiung and Tainan. 我今天跑台南古都馬拉松的半馬. 馬拉松前與馬拉松後我們去了一些高雄跟台南的景點.
This is Taroko Park, south of downtown Kaohsiung. It's part sports center, part department store, and part amusement park. 這是高雄市區南邊的大魯閣. 它結合了運動中心, 百貨商場, 跟遊樂園.
It's not cheap, but my daughters loved it, and it's a lot closer than E-Da World. I'd like to go back there and go bowling. 這個地方一點都不便宜, 可是我女兒非常喜歡這裡. 也比義大世界近多了. 我想回去那裏打保齡球.
This is what it looks like inside the main building. I think Dream Mall has a better selection of stores, but there's a lot more to do at Taroko Park. 這是百貨商場一樓的主要室內空間. 我覺得夢時代的商店比較多, 可是大魯閣的活動場所比較多樣.
After Taroko Park we drove up to Tainan, and visited the National Museum of Taiwan History. It was surprisingly interesting. 逛完大魯閣以後我們開車到台南的台灣歷史博物館. 那個地方真的很有趣.
If you want to know more about the history of Taiwan, this is the place to go. Most of the exhibits are in Chinese and English. 如果想多了解台灣歷史的話, 你一定要來這裡. 大部分的展覽有中文跟英文的介紹.
The special exhibit on food was my favorite part of the museum. Food of course holds a very special place in Chinese culture, and this exhibit goes a long way toward explaining why. 台灣美食的特展是我最喜歡的部分. 在中國文化中食物很重要. 這個特展介紹了中國文化跟食物的關係.
Many of the exhibits here discussed the connection between Taiwanese holidays and food. No English here, but the exhibits are all fairly self-explanatory. 特展也介紹了台灣節日跟很多種食物的關係. 這個部分沒有英文的介紹, 可是這些節日跟食物的特色看就知道了.
We stayed the night in a motel not far from An Ping. This was the river in front of the hotel. 我們在安平區附近的旅館過夜. 這是旅館前面的河.
The next day - today - I ran the half marathon. Sorry, to busy running to take pictures of that! 第二天 (今天) 我完成了半馬拉松. 但我忙著跑步沒有拍照.
But we did visit the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi in Shin Dzuo Ying after. On the top floor there was a puppet exhibition. 這是我們之後去的新左營的新光三越. 它的頂樓有布袋戲偶展覽.
View north from the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi. There's a trail up that mountain to the left, and I'd like to go up there another day. 新光三越北邊的風景. 左邊的山有步道上去, 我改天要去看看.
