Day 6 Pictures

Getting these up and going tonight, while I have the basketball game on in the background as opposed to waiting until tomorrow morning. I must be at the doorstep of being over my jetlag now. Woke up at 5:00 this morning so tomorrow we may actually hear the alarm for the first time in about 3 weeks as opposed to waking up at 3:00 again.

Much smaller set of pictures on day 6. I guess we didn't do anything riveting that day. Only 7 here and a couple are probably pushing the bounds of what's worth posting, like this first one for instance. Here you have the rare sighting of a bank, where they keep money. Money is used to buy goods and services. Currently, the exchange rate is 30:1 with the US dollar. It used to be 34:1, yet 1 more reason your bike costs more and more these days.

Yeah, it's a bank. Wow.

This is your typical "establishment" which kind of splits the difference between the street vendor and your full-fledged crisp & clean looking restaurant. This place is right around the corner from the apartment in Lotung. We went here for a hot & sour soup before lunch while Nat's mom was out getting her hair cut. We wanted to get a little local food action because leftovers were on the menu that day. Here Nat wolfs down her share while I hold Julia and take pictures.

And here is one of the blurry pictures I took while entertaining Julia. You know I could have sworn I took one of the women making the soup but it wasn't there. It may have been so bad I deleted it. This is a bunch of instant food you can grab when you go to sit down. This is basically fast food in Taiwan.

As we were leaving pre-lunch we found Nat's mom, who picked up Julia with her newly cut hair. She didn't put together that we were pre-eating which was good. She didn't ask, we didn't tell.

This is my vacation addiction, the Vitalon green tea, chilled, a mere 16 calories per bottle. Try as I might I could not find a place to buy it here. In this day and age you would think you could buy anything. But it turns out you can't. This place even has a website but it's pretty thin and not very useful.

Oh, I remember now, this was the Italian night, which was actually quite good. After dinner we went shopping for something or other. Julia found a chair and made herself comfortable. Lydia in the upper corner there.

Not sure what prompted this but they both climbed into Nat's parent's bed and had fun with it. Lots of entertained people by this little display.

And that's that, day 6 in the books. Not a real exciting day in terms of pictures but it is what it is. Maybe tomorrow will be more exciting.
