On our first full day in Taipei, we slept in a little and took a cab from our hotels to meet Gary on Yong Kang Street for lunch. I’m not sure you would really call it lunch. It was more like a snack-lunch-dessert-snack session. (more…)
We flew five hours from Bali to Taipei on EVA Air, a Taiwanese carrier, and were served a meal but as with most airplane food, it is how you would expect it to taste…horrible. When we finally arrived in Taipei, we picked up several bottles of liquor at duty free, stood in line for customs, retrieved our luggage, rode in a chartered bus for one hour into the city, checked into our hotel, and three hours later, we were tired but ready to eat!
In the last couple of days in Bali, everyone was in wedding mode. The bridal party was busy with a wedding rehearsal and welcome dinner one day and traditional Chinese wedding games, tea ceremony, wedding ceremony, and reception the day after. Those of us who were not part of the bridal party were able to relax in the villa and join the rest of the guests for the ceremony and reception.
