day 13 in taiwan (0 comments)
the typhoon will not hit taiwan at all - lucky us! so i returned the scooter today, grabbed a coffee at the 7-eleven store and went home by foot. on the last 200 metres the hotel owner's son drove by with his scooter, and gave me a ride back to the hotel. nina was a little sick because of having eaten too much eggs for breakfast (she had eaten my portion of scrambled eggs too), so she was sleeping in the meantime. the weather was fine again, just a few light rain showers from time to time, but overall it was sunny all day long. so we spent the day on our balcony, enjoying the fabulous view[1-3] over the sea, cooling down in the room (thanks to the A/C), watching a few movies on HBO-asia and FOX-asia, sorting out and editing our photographs, writing bLog entries, and the like. the hotel staff was also busy, cleaning all the floors, and seemed way more relaxed than the day before. most likely due to the good news about the typhoon. in the afternoon the first new guests arrived, we were not alone anymore. amongst them was an english speaking girl, which made communication with the staff way easier. in the evening the phone rang and one member of the family asked if we wanted to join them and the other guests watching "burning birds" (at least that's what we understood). curious about what we will get to see we joined them. we walked around in the hotel area when suddenly they were pointing in some direction. they wanted to show us glowworms - hehe. also we learned that the scary and pretty loud noises we heard the night before came from frogs (or toads?), though we did not spot one, as they stop making noise as soon as you come close to them. we also tried (and bought a package) "twisted dough", a delicious sweets offered by the mother.
after a beautiful sunset[3] at the end of the day and we went to bed, knowing that we will have to leave this wonderful hotel tomorrow. it was really relaxing and a nice break from the strenuous trip. track: day 13
