I want to begin by making some general observations about Taiwan that have been bouncing around in my head for a little while now.

1. First of all, for a country that loves its street food (as it should! I love this method of eating!), but has a real dearth of public trash cans, there is an amazing lack of street litter. I mean to a …

Counting My Prayers

Ever since Ben and I had noticed the Fortune Shoes at the City God Temple, meant to bring good fortune to married couples and prevent straying, I've been wanting to return to get a pair for us and for Gwyne and Ryan (since the latter are getting married in February). Today, when the internet decided to stop working and having been rebuffed by the …

After a brief trip to the ancient street of tea to buy one more little teapot (I simply love them and decided to get one for myself, as the other one I'd purchased has been decreed a gift), I met up with Ben and the gaggle of mathematicians in preparation for an afternoon excursion to the National Palace Museum. Ben and I had purposefully not gone …

Taipei First Day

... shells justice.

After that we went to the Mountain Star for hot tub. Originally we were hoping to go to a Japanese-style hot tub with stone walls surrounding it, yet we found another one in which we were able to contact. The trip to the hotel was long and exhausting; we had to get the MRT to Beitou and then take a relatively long journey on bus S9. The hot tub itself was actually within ...

Thanks for being my home for four nights, Taipei.

... as Abba once so blatantly put it in Slipping Through My Fingers.
Taipei has an inexplicable charm, and I say so after my fourth visit thereto. Admittedly a number of places can offer quite a view, or similarly quite an experience, but Taipei is very vulnerable to staleness on a second visit; and whilst good, food in Taipei is by no means amazing; and though cheap, prices in Taipei are not anywhere near shockingly cheap. Despite so, I ...

    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.
