DAY 4

Jan 18 2017

So I'm trying to pace myself a bit better today, as I crippled myself yesterday. Weather forecast is showing another lovely day so I'm going to go to Taipei 101 to see the city from above. It's one of my favourite things to do anywhere that has somewhere tall enough - it helps me cement the geography and layout of the city in my head. Plus it looks kinda cool

That was fun. Turns out you've got to play 'find the elevators' in here. I understand why (as everyone would use them) but not a lot of fun for me. I found them in the end (and they're so posh!)

Do I go back to the hotel or not...

Cute Asian alert! Too weird to take a photo though :(

Jet lag has just hit me like a truck! I thought I was doing too well. Going to have a little nap before going to a night market.

Oops! I was so tired that I kept switching off the alarm and slept for two hours instead. Oh well. Good job the night markets are open until midnight.

Euugh! Just saw two cockroaches on the street right where I was walking. Gross! I've never seen a real life one before - not even in the states. They're odd looking bugs

DAY 6

Jan 20 2017

Completely forgot to set my alarm last night after searching for and making a "must bring back" list for shopping purposes. Only woke up because there were workmen in the hotel corridor doing something (edit: fixing the WiFi). Oops. In my defence, there was obviously new guests on my floor as there was a baby crying well into the night (1:30am last time I looked). Plus, I'm finding out that shops etc don't open til 10:30/11am and stay open until 10/10:30pm so there's a much later culture here.
Off to a creative park first today, then we'll see, depending on the weather
