Taiwan: Yesterday Once More

   The pictures featured here were taken in China and Taiwan between 1997 and 2003. Someone has pointed out the strange year on the pictures -- 88. This is a Republic of China year. 'Year One' for the Republic of China is 1911 -- the year of the first revolution, which not only saw the fall of the Qing Dynasty and Sun Yet-san as the first president of the ROC, but also the beginning of an era of chaos for China. I never did set the date properly on my old camera, so it was always 88 (1999) in my world during those days:)

Please enjoy this walk down memory lane ...
