I figure now you can all see exactly what you have to look forward to if you ever make it to this friendly Asian island! :) .....and if you will never make it here, you can still consider this a glimpse at a day in the life...
The crew met me for lunch this day. I was working again, but lucky for them Jason was off work again and he is a great tour guide!

Casual sit-down restaurant selling dirt cheap

|Lu Ro Fan, with orange pickled vegetable on the side |
[pronounced "loo row fun"] ~~~ This stuff is delicious!
|National Palace Museum - with it's aqua and orange tiled rooftops|
|Mom with a Chinese lion|
|Brief glimpse of the grounds|
It was raining so unfortunately they did not get to tour the gardens that day
After the National Palace excursion, I am told the ladies entertained themselves by cruising some of the many department stores near our home. No photos of them shopping though ;)
|Ah yes, time for me to get off work and join them!|
|Window into the kitchen where delicious dumplings are being made!|
At least you know if you make it to Taipei there is plenty of good food to be found! Ha, I feel like the photos from this day are all food - but of course, that is always the highlight of our vacations, finding the best local food! :)
