You’ve been great Taiwan. See you again!

We stopped in to a roadside shop for a drink.
The very friendly woman and her daughter there made us a pumpkin and pineapple juice, and an ash gourd and lemon iced tea.
When I asked what ash gourd was, she very kindly gave us a lesson on how to make the iced tea.
Rice, cabbage, omelette with taro (?), greens, beer. All good.
Pigs trotters. Not so good. I tried them, but won’t be trying them again.
Must try dish of Meinong is 🍅 noodle 🍜.

I managed to get my short back and sides haircut in Kaohsiung today.
Haircut, hair wash, and neck massage all for 300 NTD. Total bargain.
I’m leaving this here for next time I need to get a haircut when I don’t speak the local language well enough.
As the title says. 4 big Taiwanese cocks.
And they’ve got cold Taiwanese beer for sānshí yuan.
Taiwanese woman: Where are you from?
Woman: Oh! Ireland is independent.
Me: Yes, it is.
Woman: Don’t you think Taiwan should be independent?
Me: Yes I do.
Woman: Hmm, some people don’t think it’s important.
