Another quick update

Well I am definitely feeling a lot more relaxed and rested than I was this time last week. We are having an absolute ball - lots of walking and getting a little more adventurous with the food we are trying. Al seems to think that before we leave we will be eating like the locals - I don't have the heart to disillusion him !!!!!!

We have been doing the tourist things - going to Sun Yet-San and Chaing Kei-Shek memorials. Tomorrow we are doing a morning tour of the east coast. We went to the west coast (Hsinchu) with Al today - it is very different to Taipei - a bit more space and definitely a lot colder. The temps are down in single figures so it is not the type of weather we are used to - having said that we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves.

We haven't done much in the way of shopping - things are really expensive here so even K has lost interest in the huge shopping malls. Now we are hanging out for Hong Kong as everyone says that is where we should be doing our shopping.

I tried my board shorts on this morning and they still fit which is a good sign - I think it means that at least with all the walking we have been doing, we are walking off the convenience food we have been eating !!!

We are off to the local night market to have dinner and browse around so I will be saying goodbye for today - take care everyone and hope that you are having a great time in the run up to Christmas. Look after yourselves and be as good as you can !!!!

Sounds like a fantastic trip - one you will all remember forever! Thanks for the email, it's really interesting to hear about what you are getting up to, especially since it's a place I doubt I will ever visit :-)
