Happy New Year! (no, i'm not crazy.)Category: (general)

I'm in Taiwan right now, to celebrate Lunar New Year with my relatives. Right now my
mom and I are staying at the Howard Plaza Hotel (a five-star hotel, mind you). That's
a relief, because for the first two days we stayed at my grandma's house, which is
almost as filled with mosquitoes as the air outside. A brief description of Taipei
(Taiwan's capital):

Really, really humid
Humidity => the air captures the smell of EVERY sewer and EVERY tailpipe and EVERY
stinky tofu stand
1/3 of the cars are taxis and buses

There's a hot spring motel my aunts, mom and I went to yesterday. While I chose to
stay inside and watch Fear Factor on the cable TV, the rest of them decided to
nearly-skinny-dip in the hot spring poolish thing out on the balcony. Down a couple
of flights of stairs, there are public hot spring pools, and one is filled with these
tiny hot spring fish that aren't fed, so when you stick your feet inside (or any
other body part, for that matter) they instantly attack the dead and peeling skin on
it. It doesn't hurt at all; but it tickles like HELL. I could barely keep my foot in
the water while my aunt took a picture! The feeling can be described as similar to
dozens of Q-tips brushing your feet at once, or maybe blunt-beaked little chicks
trying to peck feed off of your hand at the zoo. TOTAL ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE.
You should go! There was also this cat that I talked to. Not literally - I was just
basically meowing in response to its meows. I'm a pretty good meower, if I do say so
myself. Meow. Meow.
A tout a l'heure! (I'm taking French @ school)
