A Quick Trip to Taiwan

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!  It's the year of the ram/goat/sheep/lamb.  Why are there so many words for this animal in English? In Chinese it's all one word.

Anyway, the blog has been quiet lately because I have just been trying to enjoy life.  Specifically, life without work.  We had a four day long weekend last week thanks to the public holidays.

Not content to leave well enough alone, Michael and I headed out to Taiwan for a whirlwind trip on Friday, returning Saturday. While there I had the pleasure of seeing my sister, her boyfriend, my aunt and cousin.  We also ate a most delicious and appetite-opening round of spicy hotpot. 
One of the highlights of the trip was that the Grand Hyatt Taipei gave us a complimentary upgrade to a jaw-dropping gorgeous corner suite with windows on three sides showing sweeping views of Taipei.  We were both elated and depressed (the depression stemmed from the size of the hotel room compared to our apartment).

There were cute little porcelain and ceramic pieces scattered throughout the unit.
We were right next to 101.
