The Mecca of Night Markets

Another typhoon has come and gone. It's remarkable how well this city functions in spite of the crazy storms. The rain does a wonderful job of clearing the air, making everything fresh again.

Last night, Kelly and I went to the "Shilin" night market. We had a lot of fun. The markets are amazing here. There are about 500 stands selling everything from fresh squid to fake Gucci hand bags. We were there for about 3 hours and still aren't sure we saw everything. Kelly was freaking out at the prices for women's clothing. She vows to return once she gets her first paycheck...lol.

Kelly is a great girl. She and I enjoy spending time together. We didn't think we were going to be able to do anything today because of the storm. The storm died off last night, she called me today and invited up to her place. We hung around her neighborhood and had some fun. She works days and I work nights throughout the week so weekends are the only time we have to spend together. I'm not sure where this is going, but it's going to be tough to remain simply friends...i'm very attracted to her...

I have to go to the hospital tomorrow. In order to get a resident visa you have to pass several medical tests, shouldn't be a problem. It can't be any tougher than the Peace Corps medical insanity. Speaking of Peace Corps, I recently found out that my buddy Nelson had to end his PC service early. It's a shame because he is a great guy who, i'm sure, was doing lots of good stuff. Good luck Nelson and keep in touch.
