There are so many things I want to write about our trip. Here are some highlights from our first three days in Taipei:
Taipei 101: Beautiful building, inside and out; the view from the top is beautiful but the engineering of the building, particularly in Taiwan where earthquakes and typhoons are more frequent, is even more amazing, even for me who is not normally interested in that sort of stuff.
English: I think I was expecting some English, at least the basics, to be spoken here by more people. Our language lessons with our tutor at home and the Fluenz program have proved to be invaluable in trying to communicate with store clerks, waiters, and cab drivers.
Food courts: Great food, a fun place to try new foods; Similar to food courts in the US but cleaner with no trash cans, only ladies who come around and clean the table as soon as you finish eating. Highly recommend the food courts at Taipei 101 and SOGO Department Store.
