My wife and I met on R&R for our 1st anniversary in May of 69 in Taipei, Taiwan. We were able to meet there because she was living with her parents on Okinawa. We were neighborhood sweethearts in Santa Ana, CA. Her father was a Marine Corps Lt. Col. who received orders for Okinawa. They arrived on the island 8 months after I got there (it's a long, incredible story). While on Taiwan, we went to the National Museum, the Taipei Zoo, Haggler's Alley and flew to and from Hualein on an old commercial DC-3. We took a bus tour through Toroko Gorge on a twisting, two lane road that was carved out of the side of a mountain of marble. It was really beautiful. We were the only Americans on the tour. The other tourists were Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese. Fortunately, the tour guide was fluent in a couple of dialects of Chinese, Japanese, French and English. It turned out that not only was he a very knowledgable tour guide, he was also a professor at the university in Taipei. The R&R was way too short.
