#Motorbike, Motorbike!

#Motorbikes, motorbikes go so slow. . . 🎤 Motorbikes, motorbikes go so fast . . . Motorbikes, motorbikes put on the gas!🎹

We used to sing that when I was a kid like Ring Around the Rosie. 😂

Happy Trees!

Celebrations abound! Festive palm tree in Taipei

Elephant Mountain!

We climbed Elephant Mountain 😵 💀 I stopped counting after 400 stairs – I have since died of stair death. 👻 I am just a ghost now. . . . But seriously! 👍🏔 It was the nicest time I’ve had in a while. We didn’t get there until after 6 and it was already way dark. I was worried it would be full of drunks / creeps / make-out sessions. It wasn’t! We kept running into the nicest people! Everyone was encouraging each other. Ran into a group of about 15 #Indonesia students there for someone’s birthday. Then a group of #Korean boys. Then some westerners. A #Chinese girl who was posing for a billion pictures with the help of a #Philippine boy who was great about trying different shots and so patient. Then a sweet #Philippine boy walked us down – he’s just finished a contract in Japan. Everyone was just telling each other ‘you can do it! You’re almost there!’ This is what ‘coming together’ and ‘community’ should look like. ❤️❤️ Made me fall in love with humanity again.

It’s Freezing (literally)

When temperatures hit -32C (about -25F), the inside of my pantry window turns into #art!

No, but seriously, I have about an inch of #ice INSIDE my window. My refrigerator pantry turned into a walk-in freezer. All my #fruit froze 😭❄️
