Slippers. Food. Beer. Reverb.
There are some parts of the Asian business trip experience that just can't be matched elsewhere. Customer visits wearing a business suit and the lovely plastic slippers they give you. Foods with startling English descriptions. And karaoke, which I sometimes actually enjoy, though enjoyment requires achieving just the right mix of beer and reverb. Without this, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" must remain banned under the torture provisions of the Geneva Convention. Farewell Taiwan, until next time.
P.S. In case you can't read the text in the photo of the sausages on a stick, they are "The rice intestines charter sausages: Roast strong-smelling preserved bean curd of carbon." Yummers!
