Taiwan odds and ends for today

11 May
Taiwan odds and ends for today

I’ve spent the last few weeks trying to really absorb more of my surroundings as I am preparing to leave Taiwan.  I have really enjoyed my time here, mosquitoes aside.

It’s been raining a ton.  I’ve been noticing all the flowers starting to bloom.  It’s getting greener and warmer by the day.  Here’s a few photos from my meanderings and of course, some food.

Just like dad

Just like dad

I had to scramble in my purse to get this photo in time!!  They got on the escalator.  The little boy, feet firmly planted straight down being cautious, holding the rail.  Dad assumed the position you see straight away.

The little boy looked at his dad’s feet, looked up at his face, back to dad’s feet, then to his own feet.  Then, ever so carefully, gripping the rail for balance, he put one foot over the other until they were crossed.  He looked at his feet, at dad’s feet, back to his feet to make sure it was right.  He looked up at dad’s face, who was still unaware of what was happening, then pushed his arm forward on the rail, so he could lean a little bit.

He did a full body look then back to dad, broke out in a smile then turned to face front, just like dad.  It was then I decided I needed this picture.  This reminder that everything we do, everything, they look up to.  This was such a sweet reminder of that.

I love helping with homework!  Why on earth they need to learn about American money is beyond me, but hey, I know it, so we can do it!

Since I helped her she decided she could just give it the right grade!  Haha too cute!  I don’t know what her teacher thought of it, but I like it.

Why is it that in a place where there is a “World Soybean Milk Magnate” the only place I can get soymilk in my coffee is at Starbucks?

These three signs were all on the same building for the same restaurant.  I don’t know, but I thought it was interesting!
