A Little Better All The Time


Last night we toasted to improvement.
Today was beautiful.
The city of Ilan is a little big city. Its got all the lights of a big city at night, with a small, beachy sort of feel.
Jeff and I ate breakfast. Ilan is full of kind people. Some say "hello" and wave.
Where we ate breakfast, after our soup, rice, bamboo, meat and clams, the owner gives us a Guava fruit, which I think tastes like fresh cut grass embodied in a fruit. It was delicious. Then she gives us another. We are greatful. We pay and leave. Two American dollars per person.
Then we go down to get another, cheaper digital camera.
Jeff and I sat and sipped coffee at a coffee bar on the corner of a street and enjoyed the first day of warm sun. It felt wonderful.
We went about town today, getting things done, eating and writing on our blogs. It's 4:32 pm right now and I'm not sure if we will walk today.
Today was not as exciting in a reading-about-it sort of way, but it was absolutly glorious not to have an unfortunate incident occur. Knock on wood.

Well, if I lost a Nikon D70 I would cry. But I'm glad to hear you're still alive. Please stay safe. When you get to Tai-dong there's a friend of a friend of mine (our mutual friend is named Katherine) who teaches down there. He's been in Taiwan a LONGTIME never met him, only chatted with him on e-mail. Nice dude, Steven W. sawjk@hotmail.com at least he might be able to find you a bed to sleep in. Good luck.
