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.

Then after lunch we spent some time at the Palace museum - it was very crowded, so really hard to keep an eye on everyone, and somewhat nerve-wracking when the kids were given free time there.

Since it was my last night in Taipei, we decided to go to the night market near the Mudan House for dinner. At first we went to the beef noodles stall to try the beef noodles that have been passed down for about 3 generations. The soup was made with beef bones and the noodles were soft and tender. Next, we went to try this fried bean curd skin wrapped ...
We arrived in Taipei and it engulfed us in it's steamy, thick air and noise. It was hot and humid, and this was at 9pm at night. The city felt like a grown up version of China. The bicycles synonymous with China, were replaced by scooters. There were soo many of them, watching them at an intersection was interesting, they seem to have there own little set of rules. ...
Well, everyone, I have to say, as the holiday season was fast approaching and I contemplated the fact that I live on a predominantly Buddhist island in the South Pacific, I got to feeling a little homesick and sad that I would miss Christmas this year. As it turns out, I needn't have fretted. Just when I had given up all hope of shameless department store Santa displays and the insanity inducing, continuous looping of the same top-40 Christmas songs on ...
