A quick note to inform you of my new coordinates. I’m writing this from a smoky, dimly-lit gaming cafe* in Kaohsiung, Taiwan**. As most of you will remember, this is the city in the south of the island where I spent last year teaching English. Big ups to Steve (aka Mammoth) and Crystal for putting me up.
I left Seoul on Saturday night and flew two-and-a-half hours to Taipei. Spent the night there, and then bussed five hours down here to Kaohsiung yesterday. I’m here for the next several days. And after that…well, I don’t wanna spoil the surprise. You’ll just have to keep reading to find out where I’m heading next.
I’ve only got limited Web access*** over the next few days, but I’ll be posting more photos from my last night in Seoul soon. It was somethin’ else.
[*The joint is packed to the gills with Taiwanese guys smoking cigarettes and playing first-person shooter games, FYI.]
[**To get all meta on you, I’m actually at the very Web cafe outside of which I took the photo above almost exactly 12 months ago. Oh, and sorry about the screwy punctuation. This keyboard is all messed up; just be thankful that I didn’t have to compose this post using Chinese ideograms.]
[***But not so limited to have missed the story of Dark Lord Cheney shooting his buddy full of bird-shot.]
