Back from Taiwan!

24 09 2007

We are back from an exciting week in Taiwan! The good news is that we got to see lots of relatives, reconnect with friends, and see a Taiwan I haven’t seen in over a decade. The food was even better than I remember. The bad news is that Typhoon Wipha basically ruined all of our sightseeing plans for the week. This typhoon closed the stock market, schools, and businesses in the northern half of Taiwan before moving off to the coast of China where it was downgraded to a tropical storm. While the typhoon itself only lasted a day or two in Taiwan, it sent torrential rains that lasted for days. We were unable to make it to either Taroko Gorge or Jiufen, the two places I was most looking forward to sightsee. We did get to see Kaohsiung, Taipei, Yuanlin, and Lukang, however, and yes, I took lots of pictures!

Most importantly for my readers is that I have lots of fodder for blogging purposes, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I will leave you with this photograph of a wonderful traditional Taiwanese family meal we had while we were in Yuanlin.
