xiao long bao love
making xiao long bao
foot massage
good spot
good fun
you know this!
back to a hotel
time to leave
Eating xiao long bao (i looooove them!), taking a foot massage (Taiwanese style is the best!), and having great Taiwanese dinner were about all we did. I wanted to go visit o l y at the cafe she works, and also to one of the famous night markets but it started to rain so heavily we gave them up. Taiwanese people were amazingly nice we were greeted with great smiles everywhere we went and I was surprised to see how different things were from mainland China. I will definately go back there for a good exploration! Thank you Taipei.
