Ahh, the first blog entry written from outside of the United States. This week finds me travelling for work in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. I'm currently sitting on the 36th floor of the Grand Hi-Lai Hotel (a 5-star hotel for $90/night, are you kidding me?) overlooking the harbor of Kaohsiung. It's a beautiful town.
We left Seattle at 12:40am on Saturday via China Airlines, and flew direct to Taipei. Fourteen hours later, we were on the ground. By fourteen hours later, I really mean at 7:45am on Sunday. Basically I burned my whole weekend in a plane. A short one hour flight took us to our destination of Kaohsiung. Going from GMT-8 to GMT+8 makes you warped.
We just got done wandering around a bit, seeing as we have the rest of the day free. Took a bunch of pictures, but the Internet connectivity in the hotel is too spotty to get them uploaded. That'll have to wait till I return.
