Wo Ai Taiwan!

Taipei, Taiwan


Translation: I love Taiwan! When I learned, during my 10 hr layover in Taipei, that the gov. gave out free tours of the area, I was ecstatic. Me and a few Assies got a 1st rate tour of a small town outside Taipei, and got to see how they make porceilin, a grand Buddhist temple, and some street scenes in the area. The guides engrish was very good, and he taught us a great deal of Chinese animal symbolism and how so many small things in their world are done to ward spirits, create luck, bring prosperity, increase health, etc. (Among the most interesting, Frogs=Lucky, Dragons=wealth, Turtles=Longevity, and ALWAYS remember to rub the top of the Stone lions heads who are guarding the temple). The lions are a very important symbol in Taiwan (they refer to themselves as China), as it is their national animal. Lions holding balls are men and lions holding babies are women. Their towns are very dense and multi-storied, all clustered around a main area, usually with windy streets. The Chinese build up, not out, as is evidenced by farms coewxisting mere blocks away from 10 story buildings. But by far the wackiest thing I saw in Taiwan was their version of a funeral. Firstly, they also use Hearses for their funerals, Ifound this an interesting borrowed aspect of our culture. But every other part they get completely mixed up on. Immediately following the slow-moving Hearse is...get this...a hired band of scantily clad women wearing Hooters-orange marching outfits, banging away on their instruments, and badly. For what is supposed to be a serious and solemn occasion, and they do look at it as such, these girls are completely out of place! And following these very un-solemn looking band members are the mourners wearing white Ku Klux Klan hoods with their heads bowed. I didnt know whether to laugh or cry. Overall it was a great (and free) way to spend my layover, getting to see an entirely new country. Wo ai Taiwan!

Chegamos finalmente a TAIWAN!!!!!

Taipei, Taiwan


Ora pois é ... são 22h em Taiwan e acabamos de chegar ao hotel!!!!

Posso-vós garantir que sofremos bastante para cá chegar, pois foram precisas cerca de 24 horas de viagem, das quais 11 foram feitas entre Paris e Hong Kong num avião super desconfortável para se dormir ... já para não falar que o ambiente era super quente e onde devido ao jetlag que se fez sentir, da minha parte sofri algumas náuseas e o cansaço físico e psicológico por parte das duas!!!!

A viagem entre Hong Kong e Taipei foi super descontraída, passou a correr e posso-vos garantir que a comida foi a melhor de todos os voos.
Chegamos ao nosso destino sãs e salvas, por volta das 21:30, onde tínhamos uma limousine à nossa espera, devo confessar que idealizei-a maior, mas garanto que o conforto era do melhor.

Já estamos no Hotel, onde a Caminha até apetece .... LOL.
Apesar de estarmos estoiradas, valeu a pena todo os esforço e sacrifício da viagem... Ainda não tivemos tempo nem disposição pra ir conhecer a cidade, mas amanhã o dia promete....

Resumindo, estamos bem, a viagem correu bem e tenho a dizr-vós que os próximos dias vão ser um sonho .... preparem-se porque não sei se volto ..... :)
