Breaking conventions with my posts so far, I'll group together two cities (capitals, even!) in different countries in one post. Mostly because I didn't spend a whole lot of time in either, and writing these posts requires some discipline ;)

When I left Dulan, I first headed for Tainan. An arduous 7 hour journey by car, train, and bus. Tainan used to be the capital of Taiwan, until it was moved to Taipei. A quick lesson in Chinese: εŒ— (bei/pei) means north, 南 (nan) means south, and 东 (dong/tung) means east. A lot of cities in both China and Taiwan have their position in the country come back in their names!

Two 4.5 hour flights and a 5.5 hour layover. I actually had to change airports in Kuala Lumpur! Luckily they were only a 10 minute train ride apart.
