Well, the first day in Taiwan was really something. I was tired and felt just ew from the plane. I was happy I was not the last one to go home. As soon as we arrived home i took a shower and then went to take a nap. When I awoke the family had just about every minute of my life planned out which was awesome but I was exhausted. I had a drink somewhere...I think eggs were in it but i am not sure. It gave me a stomach ache. Since then I was very nervous to try anything else. The next day we went to a place called an ping. It was very hot, basically summer for us. I was wearing pants so it was a little overwelhming because there were so many people. Just in the first two days i was able to realize that Taiwan is very very very different from America. First of all, there are almost no toilets. There is no toliet paper or tissue in the bathrooms and apparently everyone takes their garbage home with them. Everyone has the same brown curly little puddle. Jamily said a lot of people don't want to have kids anymore so they get a dog and spoil it. I laughed so hard when I saw a man that had a baby sling on except there was no baby in this sling. There was a dog. Taiwan is pretty interesting.
I can't believe I am saying this but the thought of actually living here one day has actually crossed my mind. I dont think it would ever happen though because I really love chicago but that just means I like Taiwan. I like that everything is very simple here except at the same time it's not. I don't really know how to explain it. Well, school here is a little too intense for me. It makes me appreciate the American school system. I appreciate the little things...like toilet paper alot more now. Jamily always tells me she is jealous of the freedom American teenagers have. Apparently here there is no such thing as boyfriend and girlfriend in highschool. They have to wait till college. I have also noticed that couples are not as public with their affection here. I appreciate no face eating in public. PDA is annoying. Today is our last day and I am afraid that a tear or two might just escape my eyes. I hate crying it's annoying. I really like Jamily and her family they have treated me very well. Jamily said she will visit me in Chicago next summer lol i dont know if it will ever happen but its nice to know that i have a friend on the other side of the world. I have to admit I really did not want to come at first but I am glad I did.
