Typhoon in Taipei

We’ve been in Taiwan for the past few days, but today we got a chance to spend some quality time in the city. I’ll post in more detail later, but I wanted to let you know we’re safe and sound, despite the fact that a typhoon is en route.

The mayor of Taipei came out on a loudspeaker and broadcast a warning for everyone to avoid using cars as much as possible over the next few days. Crazy.

I’ll be leaving for home at 12:00 PM on Saturday, Taiwan time. I’ll arrive 13 hours “later,” at 12:40 PM on Saturday, Seattle time. Oh, International Date Line, how you mess with my time-space continuum…

  1. hi, Shannon

    I am the irresponsible translator today. :P

    …. the broadcast we heard on the street of herbs was from the head of the community, or the neighborhood, warning the residents of the typhoon and reminding them to keep thier cars away from low-lying areas for fear of a flood caused by the heavy rain.

    (I should have made this clear)
