Last week's miscellaneous happenings...from fried squid to pumpkin pie...
Last week we wrapped up another semester of Chinese classes. To celebrate, my class drank traditional tea and practiced calligraphy.
The mailman brought us a fun surprise! Packages are a big deal when you live far from home. Thanks for the new footwear, Uncle Jim and Aunt Liz!
Kalan and I went out on a date! We strolled around the night market, enjoyed listening to these street musicians, and got ice cream. Thanks for babysitting, Eline!
Keira tried fried squid-on-a-stick for the first time. "Mmm, sooo good!" she said.
We went to a nearby amusement park with some new friends. I can't believe we didn't discover it sooner.
It's definitely worth checking out if you have little kids. The price is right (20 NT/ride) and it's easy to get to by MRT. More info here: Taipei Children's Recreation Center
We celebrated Thanksgiving with Kalan's co-workers at the school where he teaches English.
They made a gluten-free substitute for everything...including pumpkin pie!!! I was amazed. Thank you, John and Anne!
Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving week!
