I am having so much fun in Taiwan! My friend, Kim Williams, and I set out to visit a few night markets in Taipei and got lost! While looking at the "Metro" maps (what we would call the subway) we were trying to navigate our way to visit markets that open from around 4 p.m. to midnight and sell various items such as fresh fruit, candy, clothes, souvenirs, etc. and we must have looked confused, because a Taiwanese native named Andy approached us. He was so helpful! He offered to show us around Taipei. We went to a few night markets in the area, visited a street called "Herb Street" where we were able to taste several herbs native to the country and Andy explained to us what each one was for. Also, we visited Longshan Temple. Also, Andy explained to us how the Taiwanese pray, communicate with their Gods, and what each God represents. All the homeless people in Taipei gather outside of this temple and after the natives give offerings to their Gods and pray, they often give the homeless these offerings. Andy also showed us where some locals were filming a movie! Hopefully I would be an extra in the background, Hollywood here I come! Taiwan is such an amazing experience, I hope I can come back and possibly study here for a semester. Truly, everyone should experience the wonders and beauty of Taiwan!
