Taiwan Taipei Wufenpu Beef

17 March 2012

Wufengpu

The internet told me Wengfupu was a happening place to go of an evening.
I guess it was if you want to buy something from a wholesale clothes market. Admittedly the place was huge, clean, filled with people and the clothing seemd to be of high quality.
Unfortunately I dont want to buy any clothes, also I never want to buy anything, but generally I like looking at things that I am not intending to buy, clothes do not fall into that category.
I walked west, and went through a market that was finishing up for the day, then found myself back amongst many tall buildings.
Time for dinner then, even though I wasnt hungry I couldnt resist.

On the train back, a group of 20 or so people from at least 5 generation of an extended family got on.
The young people tried to make sure all the old people got a seat. The old people stubbornly refused, telling the young children they were perfectly capable of standing.
Then they did a head count and were one short. Panic ensued. They had left a 125 year old woman at the station. Or so it would seem. After some time she stood up at the other end of the carriage laughing.
Part of me thinks she was planning a getaway but had second thoughts.

Heres my dinner. I couldnt resist and it was fantastic. The lady warned me it was spicy. I just yelled HEN LA! And she got excited, and it was indeed made to be very spicy.
Afterwards I felt as though I had super powers. I could see and hear better. I wanted to strangle a whale or something.
I settled for running up the stairs to get out of the subway station, taking the stairs 3 at a time.
