Mexican food, waffles, and basketball

Pictures are courtesy of my friends.  My past weekend consisted of going to Danshui, a town on the coast of the Pacific ocean, to check out a popular Mexican restuarant called Eddy's Cantina.  I had a really good quesadilla with surprisingly a little too much cheese, or perhaps my taste buds are getting acclimated to Taiwan's flavors.   Afterwards we walked around the night market where my friend played a dart game and won me that Spongebob inflatable toy!  Really random, I know.  Even more random was that we were obligated to take several group pictures with Spongebob before I could stash him into my purse.  

Later that night we went back into Taipei to check out a really famous waffle place called Coffee Alley in the Eastern district (an increasingly popular upscale area of Taipei).  The waffles were great, I had the pictured strawberry waffles, although after I finished my strawberries, I could have used some syrup to finish off the rest of the waffles. 

Anyway, the next day, a bunch of us got together to play basketball at the National Taiwan University basketball courts.  For the first two hours, Yicheng and I just watched while the guys played 3 on 3 with some strangers and then afterwards we got to play 3 on 3, except it was an easy version with a 10 year old kid!  It was a lot of fun, I ended up jamming a finger but I also made a lot of baskets!!  So yay for random weekends of Mexican food, waffles, and basketball.

I'm glad it sounds like you are having a better time over there, or at least making an effort to. When I read these, they remind me of the e-mails Daddy would send us chronicling his little journeys in Taiwan, haha. Appears that we are just a family of bloggers, really.

Miss you,

I love taiwan.. do you think its possible to get a homestay at some coutnry side with great scenery for about a week?

thanks leon!

Regarding homestay in Taiwan, I bet it is possible, however I don't personally know how to go about getting something like that. I bet a little bit of internet browsing would help or perhaps there might be an ad you could put up for that on

good luck!
