Good news! We have our son’s visa – AIT told us it would not be ready until Monday but we asked if there was any way we could pick it up today. They called us a little before 2pm and said we could get it today if we came before 3:30pm. Yippee! That means we can get a flight out on Saturday night rather than waiting until Monday. We miss our other kids so much and cannot wait to see them.
Today we had lunch at the infamous Din Tai Fung Restaurant. They are known for their dumplings and they did not disappoint. They were so busy we were seated at a table with three women on holiday from Hong Kong. (It seemed like a few other tables had people seated together that did not know each other.) They told us they love the dumplings so much they come there each time they visit Taiwan. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated. While waiting for a table, the hostess takes orders so when you finally are seated, your food is ready almost immediately. Very efficient service, and delicious!
Before we leave tomorrow we hope to return to the Taiwan Handicraft Mart to buy a few souvenirs, and also visit the weekend Jade Market.
