Back from Taiwan!

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

My only comment is this: AWESOME!

I got to see a few more things than last time, and this time there was no drama! What more can you ask for? I’ve got some great photos (300 or so to go through) and tons of great memories. Taiwanese weddings are very interesting if you ever get a chance to go, although be prepared for a whole day of festivities.

Photos will go up soon, in the mean time here is a really useful phrase to learn in Chinese:

I am lost, can you take me to your home?

Taiwan – Take 2

T-24 hours (roughly) until my return to Taiwan. The question is, what will be the same and what will be different? Pictures to follow soon!

Taipei Garbage Day

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

Last night I witnessed one of the many strange things that happens here in Taipei, garbage day. A garbage truck pulled up to the side of the street I was on started playing a bad imitation of ice cream truck music and next thing I know people are coming from everywhere with sacks of garbage. Who thought it was a good idea to associate the ice cream truck song with garbage? I managed to find a youtube video of this very event:
