WKC General Meeting: Nigel Foster Presents Kayaking in Taiwan
Please join us for the WKC General Meeting in November and explore with Nigel Foster Taiwan from a Kayak. The event is Sunday, November 22 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Shoreline Library.
When Nigel visited Taiwan he had no idea what to expect. With tech industries and manufacturing in Taiwan, he imagined something like Shanghai in China, kayaking in grey canals surrounded by towering buildings, but that’s not what he found. He was soon ferry bound for an island off the southeast coast of Taiwan, to a coastline of contorted volcanic rock backed by lush vegetation, surrounded by clear blue water.
On his second visit he explored another tropical island where natives still row to sea in traditional wooden boats to catch flying fish, and live in semi-subterranean houses: where giant hermit crabs crawl the streets at night. Hot and humid as a Finnish sauna, the only respite is to dig into giant dragon-fruit ice-cream.
So as winter approaches, join Nigel and remember what it is like to be warm.
