- Scooping up the field mice... 2 days ago It’s a beautiful morning. Still warm, but comfortable now. The sun is shining through the banana tree leaves, and the clouds are fluffy and gorgeous. As we were driving home the other day through similar lovely weather, Dan mentioned that … Continue reading →
- Waiting for the Typhoon 1 month ago Typhoon Matmo is headed straight for us. While that sounds dire, Taichung is actually pretty well protected.

This blog really tells what it is like to be an expat, in addition to providing interesting tidbits and travel tips on Taiwan.
