We watched the Amazing Race tonight. The teams traveled from Osaka, Japan to Taipei, Taiwan. We were surprised when one of the contestants, after receiving their clue to travel to Taiwan, said he enjoys Thai food and has some Thai friends. We have had a number of people ask us about Taiwan’s relationship to China, but confusing it with Thailand – that’s a first!
The teams traveled from Taipei on the bullet train to Taichung, then back to a tea house in Taipei. They then went to a Taipei park to complete a task before arriving at the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (recently renamed “Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall”). We enjoyed getting a glimpse of Taiwan, and we are looking forward to our trip there when we go to pick up our little one.
