My 4-star hotel has free-use bikes for guests. I went looking for The Bank of Taiwan and met some vicious, huge dogs – fortunately chained up.
Within 15 minutes I was lost – but with a map. I needed to know where I was in order for the map to be of any use.
The people at Century 21 – real estate, (Rita and James who arrived later) put me on the right track.
James and I went to his friend’s restaurant, a Taiwanese guy who has lived in Brisbane for seven years before returning home. He spoke English like as Aussie.
“Were you at Sunnybank?” I inquired. (A suburb in Brisbane where many Taiwanese have settled). It’s a safe question that always gets “Yes” as an answer.
Australian’s often say they are in the best place in the world. If so, why do so many Taiwanese return home to Taiwan after a few years in the Australian paradise? It’s probable because of the food.
In other respects, I believe Australia (away from the cities) is still a frontier country. Huge distances between anywhere.
Dinner was noodles with stir fried vegetables and Atlantic Salmon. Plus sashimi and a salad. The waitress in the picture was Yang.
