Taiwan Day 3

On Sunday, my mom had another full day of class, but we met up with her later in the afternoon because her sister drove into the city to see us. My aunt and her husband drove into Taipei to pick us up for dinner and to show us around the city. Before having dinner together, we drove to Beitou, the town where my mom and her four siblings grew up. Beitou is famous for their hot springs (it’s actually so hot that you can cook eggs in some of the hot springs!)

Here’s me and David in front of one of the larger hotels:


After seeing my mom’s house, we went to a nearby restaurant that’s been open for over 100 years. They specialize in beef noodle soup, but instead of having a thick, spicy soup base, it’s a very light soup:


After dinner, we drove from Beitou to Taipei and went to the Shilin night market, one of the most famous in Taipei. My mom’s university is across the street and after classes, all of the students eat dinner at the night market. We already had dinner, but we went to get ice slushies:


We ate three different types of shaved ice (the green tea was the best, by far) and afterwards, found an area filled with little games we used to play as kids. My dad used to take us to the night market a lot when we were younger and David would always play with the BB guns…we found those games again and David played again (although we didn’t spend the entire night playing like we used to!)

Just came back from Taiwan myself and had to chuckle looking at some of your destinations, which were pretty similar to mine. Taiwan is small after all, but really a lot of fun. My favorite eats were the freshly prepared seafood snacks at the ports, must had visited 4 or 5 of them up and down Taiwan.
