Chung and across the valley to Linkou no longer exist -- all built up. Linkou
is a well-to-do suburb, so I'm told. There are now trees lining Chungshan
bei-lu (which is nice, but I preferred it the way it was before). The Linkou
Club is a restaurant, and the MAAG compound is an open field. Taichung is
a major metropolitan area of over a million. The Ambassador Hotel is there,
but my favorite drinking spot, the Sky View Lounge, has been rennovated as
"... The old "63 Club," the NCO club across the
Keelung River has now become the American Club, so that remains.
