Fortunately for us, Debbie found this picture of the Oasis Hotel where she and her family lived until their quarters in Tien Mou were ready.
Taipei American School is still located in Tien Mou (Tianmu). Now it is located on Zhongshan North Road, Section 6, in the ShiLin District of Taipei.
A well-known baseball field can be easily seen from this overhead shot.
With the campus of about 15 acres, the school is very modern and accommodates students from K-12.
This is the entrance along Zhongshan North Road. Notice the Taiwan flag. Directly across the street is the Taipei Japanese School. In Grass Mountain is the Taipei European School.
