Time Travelers

Today we traveled to Taiwan! Because of the drastic 12-hour time change, it felt like we were time traveling. We left on Wednesday afternoon and arrived in Taipei Thursday evening.

One of the people on the plane stood up to get something from his carry-on. He pulled out fresh strawberries and proceeded to put them inside the pouch of his red sweatshirt. Lint, anyone? High point of our 12-hour flight. It was like a weird cross between the Willard Preacher and Napoleon Dynamite.

We've decided that all Asian babies are cute. Ke ai!

Today we experienced something totally new! On the plane from SFO to TPE, the passengers on our plane were served a ham and cheddar sandwich and GELATO as a snack. They must've known we were coming.

We had a conversation in Chinese! It was mostly by accident, but it still counts. Michelle has been teaching me some phrases and words, so our conversation went like this:
"I am Becky."
"Very good."
"Thank you."

We're staying at Michelle's grandma's place and had some delicious fruit! Fruit here is much more flavorful. Bananas, watermelon, honeydew

We watched Phineas and Ferb in Chinese.

Tomorrow, we explore Taipei!
