After the nice walk, I met up with Penny for a downtown adventure.
|Kind of what downtown looks like- Penny thought it was|
funny how many random people said hi to me
|Special tea... and free French fries with tea purchase until the New Year!|
(Seems like a weird combo but maybe that's me!)
|"BOOM flowers" and a courtyard decorated for the new year|
So I sat down in my orange corduroys to the fanciest meal I've ever had. There's no menus- you just sit down and they bring you 8-10 small dishes, all beautifully decorated and specially paced. What did we have? I wish my words could do it justice but to me, it was fancy meat, fancy shrimp, papaya stuffed with cheese and potato, delicious tofu, maybe squid hotpot? Red bean mochi and guava juice for dessert. I don't really know the English words but I assure you, it was delicious!
So Taipei tomorrow- Penny and I are taking an early high speed train to the city (she's excited for Japanese MOS hamburgers for breakfast!) and she's going to go to the Palace Museum with me then she has to head home to her family for the New Year. I'll have Saturday afternoon for personal explorations, a night tour that evening then head Professor Pao's way for New Year's Eve. Time to pack!
