xavier in taipei

Alex and I don’t make the best tourists. We’d happily sit in a town for weeks on end, eat nothing but Mexican food and watching re-runs of our favourite sit-com.

At this stage of our short spell in Taiwan, inactivity is not a problem. We study, try to order our tea in Chinese and take in the local culture.

That is to say, whatever culture exists no further away than a five minute walk. That’s only two and a half minutes each way.

We left Hong Kong with countless events, restaurants, mountains, cliffs and cuisine unaccounted for.

And that was with ten months. Here we have half the time and approximately thirty-two times more area to explore.

So, It was lucky for us when Xavier arrived.

Finally, we had a reason for breakfast at breakfast time, Taipei 101, baseball, hot springs and excess drinking.
