Chiang Kai-shek, former leader of Taiwan, would have never thought that his memorial hall will be visited by the people of communist China one day. But now; the C.K.S Memorial Hall has been the most popular tourist sight for China people since Taiwan allowed them to come. The white wall in the background is a temporary site fence for the activity coming in days, and the beautiful roof is the top of the National Theater. The picture perfectly explains the present Taiwan: China influences are greater day by day; and our heavy traditional government and society is shaking on a unstable base.
