The hotel is right next to the airport, which makes it extremely convenient after a long set of flights. Though we've only just arrived, the reception staff was friendly and helpful, we have vouchers for breakfast, there's free wifi in the rooms, and the bed is comfortable. Beyond that, the room is clean and modern.

By this time we were just soaked with sweat and the thought of walking around outdoors was not appealing at all. We picked up some Ooling tea and also an interesting looking tea laqeur. We ...
... fed and exhausted (thanks Johno - what a week). Cocktails in the best bar in town, a Taipei thunderstorm, an authentic Taiwanese friend and subsequently a beautiful necklace, bubble tea, white turnip cake (the best thing), a traditional Taiwanese breakfast of warm salty soy milk soup, and a hell of a lot more but I just heard my boarding call...
Catch you all in Paris.
... a good ol' time, bantering with friends on Facebook (we are 12 hours ahead here) and having some excellent breakfast dumplings in a very beautiful and bright airport in Taoyuan.
With still time to spare, figured I'd get to the gate early and sit there. Along the long walk back to the gate, a Taiwanese airport official walks quickly towards me asking several people something. To me, he asks "Is your name Ed?".... nope. After ...
