Chi-Jin is said to be first area to develop as a city for Kaohsiung. It is must to be an error from the historical point. As " History of Feng-Shan County at 18 centery"(鳳山縣志), the first development area is actually Tsoying. The birdsview of Chi-Jin Penisula and end of Chai-Shan as two pillars of Kaohsiung Harbor, is a natural scene of Kaohsiung. 旗津據説是高雄市最早開發處(跟據"鳳山縣志" 應該是左營) 自空中看到旗津半島與柴山尾端形成之高雄港入口天然形勢
Also from a friend. The apehiil is at far left,the Pan-Ping Shan is at middle and the Da-Gan Shan is far middle. The white ship in the harbor, Royal Pacific, is fired few days later. May be it is the last view of it from air
The 2008 campaign is now like a wildfire, esp. in DPP. The FMR mayor,Frank CT Hsieh is also a candidate.His culture background is excellent among the candidates although some rivalry attack him for his super-era views of the fate of Taiwan. He arouse the enthusiasm of Kaohsiungians, this is actually one real jewel but not Aviata-style. For I am a native of Kaohsiung, furthermore an offspring, to introduce from my standing point is obligatory. This blogspot will show Kaohsiung's now and passed as best as I can.
At first, I show here is courtesy from a relative who take the picture from a jet. The hill is Ape hill, named by Hollander at 1642, for there are many macaques, I call it a "Saint Hill of Kaohsiung", not only it is the highest (compare to the Pan-Ping Hill, at northern ) but its so near the downtown, the exclusively in the world. There is no other city to have a hill to be enjoy only half day, London?Tokyo? New York? Paris?....no,no exactly no.
