I was told these teenagers were from the Corps of Cadets and would become political officers at some point.  As you can see, they were marching in this area.

A picture of the "National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine" in downtown Taipei.  I recall it was so huge, it was difficult to get the entire structure in the frame.

A peephole in the shape of a fruit.  Interesting design for the times.

A majestic villa inside the compound.  One item I recall from the tour, there weren't banks  per se at that time in Taiwan so the Lin family would bury their money at various locations around their compound.  I assume all that fortune has been recovered?

Still at the Lin Family site, some pictures of the small pond in the middle complete with Lotus plants.  A very calming environment indeed.
