back to taipei from LA
So I'm back in Taipei, slowly adjusting to the time difference, the humidity/heat and the lifestyle.
The first day back, it was sort of surreal walking around Vieshow again and I was sort of in a daze having landed at 5 am and slept most of the day. The crush of people, everyone speaking in Chinese, the relief of stepping inside an air conditioned space. I wonder why it's different this time around- it's not like I haven't gone away for a month or more before. But I'm so exhausted this time around, going to bed at 10pm, up at 4-5am.
Maybe because I didn't sleep well on the flight, or the few nights before leaving LA.
Maybe because of the heat.
Maybe I'm getting old. Haha. Hopefully it will just take the usual week to adjust back.
Well, just wanted to let you know the blog will soon be back to its regular programming (Taipei eats!) though I still do have a lot of LA eats that I'd like to mention. It was a great trip- a couple weddings, a few birthdays/anniversary parties, lots of catch ups with friends, new restaurants to eat at, some home cooking and baking, a little shopping and even made it to the beach. Easing back to life in Taipei, so hopefully I can refocus my brain to the stuff that I enjoyed before I left and can't wait to share with you. Somehow I just couldn't write about it when the tastes of LA/OC/SD were fresh on my mind when I was away.
Any new must eats in Taipei pop up while I was gone?
