  • Beitou station. Transfer station. Fuxing Beitou. Thank you.

  • I've been running around this city this past week.

  • 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.

Beitou station. Transfer station. Fuxing Beitou. Thank you.
