Not really sure of my plans are today but i know i want to try to get some sightseeing in with daylight hours. This whole week it's been rainy. and foggy and overcast and unfortunately Taiwan is a beautiful country. But I'm not sure if my photos or videos will represent that. I left my down jacket at the apartment and I'm hating myself for it. It's kinda cold today. You'll find that a lot of dogs are dressed up in little street clothes. Sometimes they're even pushed around a baby carriages. You could say that dogs are pretty much part of the Taiwanese family. Ok, now this isn't common but they have it. They're doing a real time display so you can tell what stalls are occupied and what's not available. What's in use and what's not in use. Or sometimes you have this. The good thing about the Taiwanese squat toilets is that they have this bar. This is what I like. You can hold on to it when you're leaning back. So if you don't have good knees which I know when you have mentioned it in my other video. If you don't have good knees then this might be a lifesaver for you. Toilet paper. A lot of times they have toilet paper right next to it. That means you don't have to remember to pick up the toilet paper on your way in. We have this pancake house, which happens to be pretty popular with the locals Now the thing that I've learned is the Taiwanese will wait in line for good food. So whenever you see a line wrapped around the corner at a restaurant or a food hawker It generally tends to mean that the food is worth waiting for. And that is a local Michellin rating. Wow it's like a salty crepe pancake. It's definitely different from anything I've tried. Oh my gosh... mouthgasms... tastebudgasms. That's what I'm experiencing right now. Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. That's how my tongue is going. I'm definitely contemplating whether or not I want to stand in line again or at least order a few to take home. Takeout. I'm thinking about it... And a back line for another turn. Tha'ts a r really long line for mochi and it's because their mochis are big and cheaper than what you would normally pay at a street fair. In Taipei, rice noodles are pretty popular and this place is really hopping. There's a line wrapped all the way around the corner. And that's for these flour rice noodles. Another popular restaurant. I'm trying to decode what it's all about. Someone goes to the computer screen. I'm not sure if they check in to see what the waiting time is and let them know how many people are in their party. The waiter comes out . He gives the next people in line, menus.. and takes their order. There's definitely a queue waiting to get inside because spaces are limited. We're in the MRT right now or the metro and there is not only Wi-Fi but a charging station. This is like a charging station area for people who need to charge their phones. The thing is that I think you need to bring your own charger, but they have plugs here we can plug in. So I've noticed that Taipei has like these little of areas, where women and stand at night . Kinda like a safety zone. I guess there are CCTV around the area so that if you're here at night, you can stand in the area and you'll be monitored or your safety will be monitored. Taipei for the most part happens to be a pretty safe city is what I heard. So far my bag has been open a lot because my backpack broke. I'm kind of hobbling along. The beauty of Taiwan is that there's a lot of free Wi-Fi in public places like metros, museums.. The only catch is that you have to go to one of the tourist information offices and kind of get your phone set up so you can receive a password. So I'm going to log in... but it's going to ask me for a password. Yup, see ... this is what I hate. You either need to know the language or already have a Taiwanese SIM plan. I've been noticing it more with different countries like India . They had free wifi in Kolkata but you have to have an Indian SIM. Which defeats the purpose of it being free wifi. So after 5 days of my Taiwanese SIM not working, I finally got a signal. I have three more days left. The reason why my energy bar on this is so full and it's only 6 'oclock is that I haven't been able to use internet service. So I haven't been able to update everyone. I'm sorry about that. Like many places in Asia when you're taking the escalator then the right hand side is where you just want to stay stationary. The left hand side is supposedly where you want to pass. Except for when someone clogs up... clogs that lane up. So this is one of the new fads in Taiwan. You wear these clips in your hair. So it's like you're growing sprouts in your head.
