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.
