Taiwan or China

Well I have no idea how many people still look at this blog, but I have been back in Missouri since 2008. I am finally able to get back to Taiwan!!!! I am currently looking for a teaching job for January in Taiwan, if I am unable to find one I may have to go to China and teach instead. So if I still have anyone that checks this blog, keep an eye out for a teaching position for yours truly, and I'll see you in January

Sweet Home Missouri

Rain rain go away

I know I haven't been keeping this blog updated as I should, and I apologize for that. Lately when the weekend rolls around I am stuck in my apartment due to the incessant rainfall. I will try and be better at keeping you updated at what is going on. Yesterday I was invited by my 5th year students to have a lunch in appreciation for my excellent skills in teaching. It was a wonderful time, we went to a restaraunt named Rock, whose specialty is Hot Pot. Hot Pot is where you have a pot with broth and veggies and meat and it cooks up at your table. Your table also has little bbq grills on it so you cook your own food, while the Hot Pot is going. It was wonderful, lots of different types of meats and at the end the Hot Pot was spectacular, all the different flavors of the ingredients had merged to make one overwhelmingly wonderful taste. Now I am going to include a few pictures I took a couple weekends ago when I went to a the third largest temple in the world. It is a buddhist temple and I was there on Buddha's birthday ( whatever ) It is a huge celebration for the buddhist's and the temple was very cool. I hope you enjoy the few pics, I miss you all and will talk to you soon.

It's the Ice cream man..... well not really

Here in Taiwan they have a very strange garbage system. They pick up your trash everyday here with a musical truck. I found this little video that shows a typical day at the garbage truck.

Driving Miss Daisy

I haven't been that good lately at keeping this blog up to date, but I decided today I would share a little of what it is like to drive here. I ride a little 90cc scooter here, it is my main mode of transportation like the majority of the people here. I found this little video online that shares a glimpse into what it is like riding a scooter here. This video is pretty tame as to what it is really like riding here. Although it does share some good things like the red light running and weaving through cars. This is my daily life here, but don't be afraid I try to be as careful as possible, I haven't followed the red light running. I hope you enjoy the video and I will try to update more often. I miss you all and will talk to you soon...
