Jewish Ohel Leah Synagogue

Being in Asia, it’s been ages since I attended anything remotely Jewish related outside Israel. But the HKUST international undergraduate guidebook I got while listening on an orientation I wasn’t meant for, suggested that there is a lively Jewish community in Hong Kong and that it might be worth checking out as the Jewish Ohel […]

Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence-11.JPG

The Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense is another one of those great HK themed museums that’s really nice to visit. It’s situated in local fort built by the British around the end of the 19th century overlooking a beautiful typical HK landscape or blue waters, low mountains, and the almost impossible contrast of endless […]

Baoan Taiwan Holocaust Museum Christmas Party-19.JPG

On one of the Sundays my mother was visiting I decided to take her to see the Chi-Mei private museum in Bao-An. On the way, I took her to see the church in Bao-An that had a small holocaust museum to promote holocaust awareness in Taiwan. I think it’s touching for Israelis for see this […]

Liouguei Tunnels - Kaohsiung County-8.JPG

Moving on from Meinong, we arrived at Liouguei Tunnels serving the Japanese to get to the area till better transportation came up.
