Ok Readers, I’m back…
Here are pictures of our time: January 29th through February 5th…
On the first day (Thursday) we ate breakfast with my co-teacher, Zoe, at Shark Bites Toast…She gave us traditional red envelopes with a Chinese token for the holiday.
Then we decided to go to my favorite mountain town and walk around…we found a great hole-in-the wall Thai restaurant…Lori used chopsticks! We shared a few dishes. Afterwards we did some market browsing and sampled snacks.

Sunday it was rainy…but that didn’t stop us from renting an umbrella on Nanwan beach and sitting at the Bossa Nove Cafe for the afternoon…
Ding JIa Hotel
and it overlooked Kenting Avenue…a bit noisy at night with the market going on down below, but we just closed the windows! Great balcony…we could see the sunset and busy-ness below.

Kenting’s night market was awesome!!! Variety of crazy snacks like dried duck’s blood and squid!!!
(We ALL tried the squid…so funny!!!)
|had to get some gelato to wash away the “interesting” tastes!|
|we found a Shark Bites toast in Kenting too!
please explain the ice-cream with cereal and the
“omelet” with potato chips…
it was delicious.
After coming back from Kenting on Monday we hung out around my town…I took them around to see my school, grocery store, 7-11, my dumpling shop, and a milk tea shop!

On Tuesday we ventured to Taipei! We took the subway to the Taipei Zoo stop then rode the Maokong Gondola to the top of the mountain…it was a misty day, but we were able to have tea and waffles and enjoy the tea plantation and cherry blossom view below…and we found the Cat’s Got Nothing to do Cafe that was featured in the BBC Travel Cafe story under Taiwan…so cool.
|Happy Birthday Laura!
So happy Coldstone sang to you…
