Taiwan 2015

Jennifer and I will be traveling to Taiwan in October with Miura Boiler. I’ll be posting updates and pictures at www.davidflowers.org , which will automatically post updates to Facebook and Twitter. This should make it easy for all of our family, friends, and co-workers to follow along regardless of social media associations with the both of us.

Off we go, departing Chattanooga at 9:22am Saturday the 17th.

We all had breakfast at Hotel One in Taichung this morning. As was the night before, the meal was excellent and offered more variety than you could possibly sample at one sitting. An incredible breakfast buffet with an egg, omelette, and noodle bar. Now it’s time to travel to Nantou County for some sight-seeing.

We were originally scheduled to tour Taiwan Times Village but due to an unexplained closing, Mr. Jim diverted us to a unique experience at the Goang Xing Paper Mill.

We woke up in the Sun Moon Lake Hotel pretty early, still not used to the time change. So what do you do at 4am in Taiwan? You watch the MLB playoffs, live including color commentary in Mandarin, in your 50,000 gallon bathtub right in front of a huge window overlooking the lake. This is how we roll in Taiwan.

I love the surreal. I love Guy Ritchie movies because they always contain very large, very surreal characters in very surreal settings. For me, our Free Night encompassed what I love about these kind of experiences. My love for the surreal has probably colored my own experience of the evening, but I’ve chosen to share it in this light nonetheless.
