One of the advantages of my sister Eleanor’s job is that she has relatively regular travel to Asia, and I was lucky enough to host her third trip to the island a week or so ago, which was just awesome. On top of just hanging out and shooting the shit, we managed to squeeze some hot spring action in, and a trip down to the pottery town of Yingge. After literally flying around the world visiting clients and suppliers, my plans of flying out to one of the islands or training it down to Taroko perhaps were not ideal. The weather remained perfect in Taipei for once, so who cares?!
Ele and I at my favourite restaurant, avec vin, du pain but no Boursain.
The Taiwanese do love their concrete – no idea what these blocks are supposed to do, but some enterprising artist made their own decision.

An actually rather nice spot looking out over the valley.

And Jemima enjoys a hot spring ….. mascot for Ele’s latest product launch, and quite well travelled!
