A Day in Taichung

Today I woke fairly late: 9 AM. I went to McDonald’s. I met a cool guy named Song, though I don’t know how to spell his name. I went to the Chong Yo Department Store, about 4.5 km south of where I’m staying in Taichung. They have neat themed bathrooms that don’t feel like bathrooms. They also have stores that sell pre-layered clothing.

Today I learned that I should always bring my backpack with me, even if I don’t think I’m going to use my laptop. If I’m sure I’m not going to use it, I can leave the laptop at home. But still bring the backpack. Backpacks are really useful.

My phone ran out of money. I added 300 TWD to it, bringing my balance to 300.6 TWD.

I walked around the department store area with Annka, my new friend from CouchSurfing, and her two friends, one of which is named Ivy.

It’s May 18, 2011, my 8th full day in Taiwan.

That’s all I have time to write for now.
