Last night, after work, I caught a bus back into Táibĕi and met up with a bunch of my old Mòdàwèi buddies for dinner. Martin, his girlfriend Rika, Ariel, and Mike W. were all there. Originally, we were going to eat at Alley Cats, but it was full. That kinda bummed me out since there’s nowhere in Guīshān I can get decent pizzas, calzones, or that sort of food. It turned out alright, though. We ate next door at an awesome Sìchuān restaurant. Sadly, I can’t get that kind of food in Guīshān, either.
After that, we went to a movie theater (another amenity Guīshān lacks), and met up with James, Jesse and Emily. We saw Inside Man, with Denzel Washington. It was pretty good! After that, James and I managed to get into Deluxe with out cover, and met up with Caskey, Sharon and her Polish buddy who’s a grad student in Taiwan. All in all, good times were had by all. I’ve got to say, I’ve never had a cooler group of co-workers anywhere. MDW guys rock.
