We are in TAIWAN!!!

I'm not going to try and make the pictures pretty. You can tell what the pictures are pretty much right? The top is right before we left, then arriving in Taiwan. We look haggard and we smell worse. Seriously why didn't anyone tell me to pack some deodorant in our carry on. That would have been helpful information. EVA airlines rock. Seriously nice. Nick Lee, our driver the best. He's going to tour us around on Sunday. The Westin of course rocks. It will be very hard to leave this hotel.
So now we have showers and We're out to explore!!

Haha... I was going to ask if you were sweating yet and then I read the post. P.S. When my husband lived in Australia... deodorant doesn't help; your body just has to get used to it. He had stepped off the plane and thought he was sick or something because he was pouring sweat. Funny thing, he said that they never dried off after a cold shower because there was no point!

Yippee!!!! You've Arrived!!! Hubby looks like he's really enjoying that luggage too. he he Have fun exploring and you rock not getting the jetlag sleep but going tourist treking instead! Go which yo bad self! WooHoo! =0) Sara/Sofa

I laughed about the deodorant thing! Nick is a great tour guide. He will wear you out! My dh was completely drenched in sweat and Nick said "wow! You really sweat!" or something to that effect. Maybe bring an extra shirt in the car...and maybe some TP and antimicrobial hand gel in your pocket. Not all bathrooms are created equal! ;) HAVE FUN!!
