Maggie and Shopping <3



Tuesday was a great day! I got to hang out with my friend Maggie here in Taipei. (We know each other due to being wallmates at the University of Michigan!) We watched a movie, Hotel Transylvania. The movie itself cost NT 100, which is around 3 bucks USD. Popcorn and a drink cost me about 2 bucks… so… In all, I spent around $5, which is less than the cost of ONE student discounted ticket in the US >.<

Then, we made our way to the Shilin Night Market. We went into many stores and bought some thangs- including shoes (AHEM MAGGIE!) and souvenirs. We also got some shrimp pancakes and cool milk tea in a bag (which also came with a show!) Overall, good night. Today Luke and I leave on our last Taiwan adventure to Tainan. It is the oldest city in Taiwan, I hear, with a lot of traditional places and eats!

Love, Stephanie
