farewell dinner party ...........

Well as the saying goes.... all good things must come to an end, after an amazing couple of weeks in Taiwan, its time to head home. but before we go our family decided to throw us a farewell dinner party. It was really great, to be among all these people, some of them i did not even know, but they were family, and it was great to be among family.

Some of my uncles at the dinner....

My dad two younger sisters, i call them Aunty number 3 and 4 for short.

Aunty number 4, i can swear this woman is the best cook in all Taiwan....

Driving in Taiwan

With few days to go before my vacation is up, i have been recording a lot of videos about everyday life in Taiwan, especially how people drive in this country. here are a couple of videos, that i shot in Taipei and the city of Yilan while driving around those two cities.

Driving in Taipei can be fun,crazy and scary, i don't think i can drive in this city.
by the way my Dad and the taxi driver kept talking in the whole video.

And while driving in Dad's home town city of Yilan the other day i shot this one.
