I'm writing this on the first night in the hotel, but so far we like the place quite a lot. We've a suite and as we're being put up for a conference, I can't speak to the value for the price. However, the hotel is well located for access to the metro, the university, and the Shida night market. It's also an easy walk to the Chang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the room is comfortable and clean. I'll update this if there's anything that strongly moves me one way or the other.

The expansive and elegant garden has a romantic European feel, with rose beds and ...
... I was finally on what seemed to be the my ticketed line. Once I was on I realized I had no idea where to get off, and neither did the driver. To my extreme luck, there was a China Air Stewardess from my flight on the same bus. Somehow this cherubic Chinawoman managed to get me within 100 meters of my motel and even told me where to go in the morning. When I checked in and arrived at my room, I was quite confused to find that they ...
... to that night so we hooped the bus back to Taipei and decided to meet up later in the Taipei 101 area and maybe go to a club. However due to massive globalization this wasn't as easy as it should have been. I remembered seeing a Starbucks (shocking, I know) near 101 with a huge outdoor seating area so I suggested we meet there since it was down the street from a popular bookstore. The problem was that the 101 ...
... scooters drove around it. I was amazed that no motorists or parade goers were injured in the staging of this event. Later on, I described the scene to a Taiwanese friend of mine and asked her what it could have been. She guessed that it was either a funeral procession or a local holiday to honor deceased ancestors. Either way, it was a sight to behold, and my beholder was very entertained. In other little differences, I would like to take this opportunity to mention something ...
