I’ve uploaded photos of our apartment on Flickr.  You can access them by clicking the Flickr box on this blog.  The above photo is a view from our front balcony.  Don’t get too excited:  seeing the mountains was a rare treat.  I had been here over a week before I saw them!

 We went walking last night and found a restaurant that we’ll be going back to this evening for chicken rolls.  Dinner was getting to be quite a challenge!  We actually found this restaurant on Tuesday when we wondered in and had a hot pot.  I couldn’t even tell you what we had yesterday, other than the fact that it was delicious.  One of the ladies who works there speaks English quite well.  Unfortunately, she wasn’t there either time we were trying to muddle through the menu.  The first time we went, we actually called our friend Leah on the phone to translate for us.  We were desparate!  Everything was in Mandarin and there were no photos!  The phone’s battery died in the middle of the conversation and we did the best we could do with the hot pot.  Kris enjoyed the meal so much that she thinks we should go back and just randomly point our way through the entire menu!

After dinner, we walked further down the street (a street we quite often visit) and found several other restaurants with promise.  We also found a total of three wonderful bakeries on the street.  You walk in these places and just smell the butter! We probably gained back every pound we had lost from walking, but the pastries were a nice treat.  From now on bakery visits will be limited to one day on the weekend.  Maybe Saturday this week since I’ll have to work on that day.

In August, 2007 I will be leaving Indianapolis with my daughter, Kristen, to live and work in the Republic of China (Taiwan). This will be my fiftieth year on this planet and my first year living in another country. This blog will let you join us on the adventure!
