Taipei day 1

Hi ya’ll!

Today it’s an amazing weather in Taipei! I walked around Da-an district to Sogo and mini boutiques everywhere!!

Really reminds me of Hong Kong (cause that’s probably my only memory of Asia).

I purchased some lingerie and eyelashes today. There are many manu little aisles of stores and I’ve found myself getting lost through all of them!!

I’m currently drafting this post in a restaurant where I ate the infamous Taiwanese beef noodle soup!! It cost NT140 which is equivalent to about $4.50!!! And I also ordered a mango juice for NT30 which is less than $1!! I’m stunned at how cheap Asia is.

Taiwan is relatively safe compared to many parts of Asia. Most people here mind their own business and no one really stares at you like most other parts of Asia!!

I’m struggling with everyone speaking mandarin but I’m surprisingly pulling through with communication! #day1

Hopefully the next few days will get better!! I’ll leave you guys with some pics!

    Food is so amazingly cheap in Taiwan! I found out that shopping and pretty much everything else was about the same as in the US though… But there is so much good, cheap food!
