Today is a national holiday, Double Ten Day, Taiwan’s birthday. The celebrations on this national holiday aren’t quite as big as traditional holidays so we plan to relax, shop and Carrefour and begin to stock the fridge.. There are fireworks in Taipei and one other city. The celebration in the second city moves every year so that folks from different regions get a chance to see it.

It is also my sister, Aleyne’s, birthday! Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!
