Yay I got out of Taipei! Kind of. Wednesday field trip + going down south over the weekend. Cause as much as I love Taipei, one just needs to escape the fast-paced city life once in a while.
dancing at lanyang high school>>diy "niu she bing">>
national center for traditional arts>>luodong night market
started from the top now we in the kao[hsiung]
A six hour bus ride later, I found myself in the intense heat of southern Taiwan. Step off the bus and I have no idea where I am. Thank you random taxi driver for actually helping us find the train station instead of just trying to convince us to go to Kenting.
And before we knew it, we were at KMU.
not that that's saying much.
let's go to the beach beach....lol jk let's just eat ice.
It goes up to x10.
we're on a boat.
So there was this boat party. Basically this cute little thing was cruising along Love River (Ai He) in the darkness, blasting the top 40 from 2009 and filled with the strangest group of young locals, middle aged foreigners, and a handful of international interns. On the bright side there were fireworks and air conditioning and a room full of pillows.
I also didn't bring my camera because iPhones are just so much more portable.
Yeah, the last time I actually ate at McDonalds was probably at least three years ago...most likely in Taiwan. And yes, I think it should be noted that Taiwan's McDonalds is substantially better than it's American counterpart...but still, not the meal of choice. I can't even remember what I ate. Probably chicken nuggets. I think there was also a McFlurry there somewhere.
Also, whatever happened to their rice burgers? :(
More importantly, America, take note! Taiwan McDonalds has curly fries. Oh my. I think it is high time for an upgrade and maybe I'll swing by the drive through more often.
After taxi-ing back (while humming along cheerfully to the Taiwanese music...) to the dorms, it was a shower parade and then #3girls1bed. Needless to say, no one slept well, and the next morning was lazy so our first meal was lunch.
I should also never take the bus again, considering it took us a lovely 6 and a half hours to get back to Taipei. Thank you random traffic. We stuffed ourselves with chips and candy and rationed out tea while watching a weird French movie. Got back to civilization, Q Square was closed, thank goodness the MRT stations were still running!
and that was the end of week 3.
Raohe Night Market.
Taipei City Hall Shin Kong Galore.
Shilin Night Market.
I think I covered a decent amount in four days. Plus hitting up Jiu Da Stationary store.
