The popular "Hawaii 51" restaurant not far from the mission office. The owner of the restaurant is taking the missionary lessons and one of the young men working there is a member so they give all missionaries a large discount when we go there to eat. They have American hamburgers, fries, onion rings and all kinds of other Western dishes. A hamburger with fries costs 160 Taiwan dollars, about $5.00US, but she discounts it to us for $99. The exchange rate here is about $1.00 to 32 Taiwan dollars. The six sisters with us are great missionaries, Sisters Chen, Sollis, Infanger, Bretzke, King and Tung.
Inside a very ornate Buddhist temple, which is housed on the first floor of a high-rise building owned by a Buddhist television station in Taichung, are two stone Chinese Tigers. Below is a huge brass Buddha with an equally large brass insense burner. The walls and the ceiling are covered with thousands of impressive personalized brass plaques of financial doners.
