I leave at about 11:30 this night from Taipei, Taiwan for Los Angeles, then change plane for Boston. I will arrive on the 13th in Boston early.
Life is good in Taiwan, although I am going to wait until I get to the USA to buy a cheap sweatshirt at this capital city is expensive for food and seems to be clothes. Hard to say, I am in a very large metropolis area, I hope the prices are cheaper in normal parts of country. This is double of Thailand.
I stayed at the Taiwanmex Hostel, very good people, happy and they have a color TV, free internet. Mostly English teachers from Korea living here and a few scattered travelers.
This is centrally located close to Subway and Train Stain so great situation.
The Hostel is located next to the ZhongShan underground train stop.' (MRT)(In English say JongShan)
