It didn't really feel real until I landed in Taipei and was suddenly surrounded by Asians and not really understanding a great deal of what they are saying to me!!
I've registered at the uni so I shall hopefully pick up the language quicker once I start studying it there.
It's been a stressful ol' day today. Bank cards and Taiwan are not getting along so well. Hopefully that will get sorted soon. I hope. But it's a day like today where I just want to sit down with a cuppa and a couple of cheeky biscuits. But what I get here is green tea and a weird cake thing (which apparently has meat in it). Now as exciting as that sounds, it doesn't satisfy one quite so much.
Though it is very exciting to see all the random and different fruits that the Taiwanese have growing in their courtyards. And we thought we Brits were cool with our tomatoes in grow bags.
