Fined by a potentially fake police

I was stoped by a fake police some days ago...
She gave me a fine for crossing the street...
She refused to show me any kind of photo ID, but refered to that "she was wearing police clothes"..the logic was so funny...but still sad, if this is the was to be cheated by a fake cop...totally different world...
Here is the crime scene, crossed when pedestriants have green...
Another funny logic thing is that I recently went on a bus and paid my ride with coins. the driver insitted that if i paid with coins I had to pay double fee, compare with if i didt not pay with coins...very funny logic...

A quick visit to an island

I paid a visit to an island recently...
It had some wierd harbour...
And many small islands nearby
...it also had many boats..
It sees like some nearby islands were artificial...
...and another nearby island was super crowded...
There were also many small small islands...
Later on I went to some bar and I had many drinks...
Luckily the drinnks were free...
This one was recommended by the bartender...
Also chocolate cake was available...and cheese toast as I remember
...omg, they also had arla milk...
And indian food...i like curry and masala spice..
I also had many star fruits...it use to remind me of tropical areas...
There were alos some tropical houses along the sea
 
And people climbing coconut trees...
And alot of dessert...
...and other creamy stuff...
...Mas Huni...what is that?
..."what did johan eat today"?
Also some snorkeling was made...
...and more eating...
...and drinking...

Some boat ride...it was s fun way to steer the boat...with the foot...cut the propeller was only in one angle...like an old viking boat...
...another tropical island..
and another sea house...
...here we go again...more dessert...
...and other creamy stuff...
and some exersice...
Also they had some scuba diving...

Some people

Ha, since internet started trolls became more common. But even before many organisations etc had to deal with them.  friend of mine described a troll like this. 
Image result for adolf hitler
Not many people knew hitler, but he is a comon symbol of hate etc.

A hike with Oscar

Me: Where do you want to go?
Oscar: Mountain area
Looking for buses and car rental stores in a coutnry where there is a "no why" ending to most aruments/quetsions, we took scooter...
Oscar wanted to leave 5am, due to traffic...but not many taiwa go to the mountains...
Oscar had some ideas about the road...
After Jiaoxi we passed by an aboriginal museum, that I wanted to visit for a long time...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atayal_people on pic at this wiki link...
I was party in a rush since Oscar didnt have the same interest as me with this cultural info...but it was interesting about the clothing etc...
Some nice and colour pic...
And a classic map over aboriginals in taiwan...
...and some names...
...and some info about how people moved before and the similarites with other people in polynesia...

A rural area...but still interesting house...
We stopped in Nanshan for some food...
Omg, a family mart...recently opened...just like in orchid island where a 7-11 recently opened...will it kill the old local stores...?
I got some aboriginal food...
Oscar was tired after a whiel...
He likes his sun glasses...here in Lishan...

...it was pretty good weather...we expected rain...
...some guiding tour arrived after us...
...some cluds far away...
Some locals posinng...
Oscar checking his drone...
...after a while we were heading back...
...we planned ot put up a tent, but might ask in a nearby resort if they have a cheap bed...
..must be the highest reosrt in taiwan...3100m high something...

We were walking faster than others...alot of passing by people
Locals resting...
Pretty nice filds up here...
up here we could se nanhushan and zhongyangjianshan...I also got tast of how dangerour ignorance is, when some locass told me that that high mountian over there is not xueshan (the second highest peak in tiawan). they claimed that that peak is in yilan...i ownder if they ever been in yilan or know what a coast town looks like...
me and oscar continued towards the west peak...
Oscar saw jade mountain in the horizon...
Also he drove his drone while walking...
yesterday he almost crashed hte drone...I was worried that he might lose it forever if he goes to far away (it can drive 2km away)...
Later we headed back again...passing all the 1000 locals again...
blurry pic...
Far down there is the resort and the highest road in taiwan...
I also saw a new 7-11 pretty high on road 7...i knew that the highest 7-11 befoer was on road 14 towards Puli...i had to stop here and get some stuff...
