Thanks be to God for my first good night's sleep since arriving back in Asia! (the key was plenty of coffee and no long naps :-) )
A few of the things I've already begun enjoying (or detesting) since my arrival back in Taichung:
+ Guava, papaya, and mango!
- Shoes thoroughly and clothing partially soaked while riding on my scooter during a heavy rainstorm (in spite of wearing rainclothes) and then roasting in the heat and humidity on same scooter a few hours after the storm passed through.
Yesterday I spotted yet another new Starbucks... that's a total of 4 new ones in less than a year. Also found that two small restaurants I enjoyed from time to time have both gone out of business. Not atypical for Taichung.
