i have spent today waliking around the markets… i tell you … mad… just totally intense. and much more so than you would think
also, you would be right in thinking that yes i am a little drunk. okay. i admit it. i have been having fun with two of the designers from the department. all i have done today is eat and drink. still getting used to the money. sometimes things are so cheap and sometimes so expensive. an obvious statement, but when I eat a meal for 330 NT$ then buy a beer for 250 NT$ it makes you re-evaluate.
plus. a few points of listening to old boys playing mah jong under the bridge. going to the night market and being blown away. … and apparently melting the kettle in my room as it for some reason does not switch off…?
ate sushi. oh my god. mmm
and i have to say that in general this is a really nice place. spent a good few hours walking around and the people are friendly. much more affluent than i expected.
woke up to a small tremor in bed – yes an earthquake. apparently normal. whoa, i went.
then went walking around. they kill a chicken for you at the market, then put it in a de-featheriser. then put it in a bag. 30 seconds. mad.
went to club after seeing a chinese rock band. They have an emerging sub-culture here that will be quite interesting to see develop. You begin to see skater kids and tattoos and attitude.
