Taiwan Taipei Food Beef

30 March 2017

Still time for more beef noodle

Tonight was possibly my last bowl of beef noodle soup for this trip. I say possibly because I recall on a previous trip I got to the airport many hours early and had a great bowl of it there, so that will probably happen.
I am also ashamed that I only have a few photos this evening, and they probably arent very interesting.

In exciting news, after spending 8 days on this trip in Taipei, and visiting on 3 previous trips, and realising theres still lots of things I would have liked to have done that I ran out time to do, that I will now raise Taipei to my top level of international cities (that was a long sentence). Taipei has officially replaced Osaka and is now in a tie with Tokyo for #1 place! Such a great honor.

Now for an update on the formal gown East Asian 9 ball championships, you might remember it was on in Taipei when I got here, 30 days ago, its still going! They are down to the last 8 contestants. The frocks are wonderful. The decorative pool cues glittering in the bright lights as the crowd goes wild.
The other thing I noticed on my channel surf through Taiwanese tv was women crying. Every single show is a woman crying. You have women crying in ancient China, women crying in the present day, and then women crying in space, followed by women crying in a post apocolyptic zombie land.
As for English language channels, they only show movies with giant robots fighting. I didnt know there were so many. Thats enough of a tv update.

In preperation for my departure, I spent the afternoon cleaning my boots, then myself. I cant get the mud out of the hotel bath mat I used to clean my boots, so they will wonder what the hell happened to it.
I am concerned that there seems to be a lot more room in my suitcase than when I came here.
And in exciting news, I have one pair of clean underpants left to put on tomorrow. I timed that last load of washing to perfection.

Heres some advertising bollards, all advertising colored pencils. I liked the colors of the colored pencils so I added a photo to my website to make it more colorful.

As I walked around this evening I started to notice giant hair dressing salons such as this one. There are lots of multi level ones similar to this. By law in Taiwan you must get your scooter and head serviced weekly.

I ate here on my first trip to Taiwan, it is called puppy risotto, now they have the actual puppy from their logo! I think the logo came first and they found a puppy to match?
