Pictured: Cathy, Christine, and myself posing for photostickers in Taichung. My head looks really tiny in the picture on the right (come to think of it, my head looks tiny in every picture, from now on I’ll stand in front).
Now that I am back in Taipei, I am just now starting to sift through the rest of the photos from my week off after the excursion to Kenting. Dealing with all those photos using Blogger’s software like I did in the previous two posts proved to be a major pain.
Cathy and I went to Taichung on Wednesday with her second sister. Our first destinations were the National Museum of Natural Science and Botanical Gardens. The museums close at 5 o’clock and we got there at 4:57. That’s ok, the area around the museums is beautiful:
After dinner we said goodbye to Cathy’s sister and met our friend Christine who was kind enough to lodge us during our overnight in Taichung. The next day, we needed energy for KTV, so we had Korean for lunch:
4 hours might seem like a long time singing Karaoke, but it really isn’t when you start plowing through A Mei Chang’s and Angela Zhang’s newest albums. I came prepared this time with printouts of Romanized lyrics from Karazen.com. While singing songs I didn’t have printouts for, I began to notice that my character recognition has gotten a lot better since I got here. I was even complimented by Christine while we were in her car that I am, “starting to sound Taiwanese”… whatever that means.
That’s all for Taichung. In the next couple of days I’ll post pictures from our day in Tainan!
