For the first time in my life, I am blogging in an Internet cafe. We're sitting in the non-smoking section as the smoke billows in from the other room.

We spent the day here in I-lan milling around in the sun, drinking creamy coffee and looking for a new digital camera. After a few hours, Steve finally decided on one, and here's our first picture displayed on one of the store TVs.

James, our salesman friend sold it to us.

We're supposed to be leaving now, but I-lan is a pretty cool place. At breakfast, we finished and paid, but the lady that served us fed us her home-grown guavas. She gave us one, and then another. After we left to buy the camera, we had to head back toward her store. As we passed, she gave us another guava. Delicious.
It's 4:40pm now, the clouds are building, and it gets dark around 5:30pm. We're late. Off we walk towards Suou.
Let's hope today is the last day of the cold wind blowing along the coast.

Suou is an interesting place. You can
go a little south to see 南方澳. It is a big fishing port on Pacific coast.

It sounds like you two are having quite the adventure! Such a mix of hospitality, generosity, wonder and excitement; and also, a little fear and uncertainty. I think that's what every adventure needs! It's a pleasure to read your writing. I like the story of the guavas. Keep it coming! And be safe!

Now, you realize most people in Taiwan are very friendly, and enthusiastic to strangers. I guess you will make tons of freinds after finished your trip. Keep walking.., and be safe.
