We finally have pictures of our house! We really love it, and it fits our needs perfectly 🙂
I’ll try and take you through a virtual tour.
It was a little strange at first not to have a traditional shower, but we are getting used to it. We just have to make sure not to bump our heads on the bottom of the stairs.
So that’s it! It’s not much, but it’s home for us! 🙂 We really enjoy living here. It’s about five minutes from our work (three if we hit all green lights). We can also walk to the grocery store, 7-11 and a delicious bakery. The first few days we lived here we were at the stores so much getting supplies that they started to recognize us. Of course I’m sure that isn’t hard considering we kinda stand out. Our next door neighbor is Canadian (we share a rooftop) and has been very helpful to us. She told us where some good stores and beaches are. We haven’t been everywhere yet, but she gave us many good ideas!
One fun thing we want to share about the culture here in Taiwan is that the garbage truck comes around every night. They play a song like the ice cream truck does back home, and everyone brings their trash out. It seems to be sort of like a social event on our street. 🙂 Every other night, a recycling truck follows the garbage truck. It’s fun to watch everyone throw their garbage in the truck. We like to call it the garbage Olympics.
I hope you enjoyed the tour and hearing about our neighborhood. We are loving it here!
