lazy weekend in Tainan
We’re back from our mini-vacation in Tainan. I can’t remember when I spent a lazier weekend. Despite all the historical and cultural attractions of the city, we barely left the hotel! I’m recovering from a cancer operation, remember? I don’t have to do history and culture. All I have to do is to call up room service.
After sleeping in late, we moseyed over to the next-door mall for lunch and dinner and did a precision-bombing taxi expedition to two Dutch-built 17th century fortresses. Other than that, we watched the Olympic Games on a Japanese TV channel in our room.
A taxi driver we talked to was very lyrical concerning Tainan’s attractions. Its habitants are obviously very proud of their city. Tainan is calm, cute, and well-organized. There are temples and old shops everywhere. We clearly have to give it more of a chance on another occasion.
For a few days I forgot that I have cancer. I forgot what I’ve gone through and what I have yet to go through. Returning to this web page after a few days, I can’t understand why I’m writing about this topic.
