Land of Pickles and mantou
Didn't feel like the 4 hours and 20mins in the air had taken me far from where I can from. The only difference is, the people are passionate about their politics and their produces(after spending 5 days listening to our guide). Walking around downtown, above ground, it's either the cigarette smoke or fumes from the cars that you breathe. Every other person here puffs. Well-groomed toy dogs some dressed to their nines can be found in cafes, restaurants and malls. Breakfast of porridge with pickle and bun is a tradition. The latest trendy drink, white bitter gourd with honey. First impression on my maiden visit to Taipei, Taiwan.
