Today I finally managed to get really lost.
My route is quite complicated, because in the morning I have to take first a bus to the MRT (Metropolitan Rapid Transit - or the metro railway) station in ShiPai, then take the MRT to C.K.S. Memorial Hall, go to the Mandarin Daily News Language Center and have a 2h lesson, then go find a bus to KaiNan Highschool near Shandao Temple, stay in the school untill I get off, then go to Shandao Temple MRT Station, drive back to ShiPai MRT Station and take the bus home.
Today I was going to do it all on myself, and it went pretty well, just untill I went out of ShiPai MRT Station. From there, it's 5mins bus drive to my home and around 15min if you ust walk there, but I went and took the right bus, but on the wrong side of the road, so I went to the western border of Lujhou City and Joni decided to drive 40min to pick me up so that I didn't get more lost. I was lucky I only went 40 minutes away.
If you're ever going to visit Taiwan, try to stick close to the MRT, which is easy and fast to get around with because the bus system is impossible to comprehend. Everything is in chinese and when they write a map of the bus route, they just make a long line with some dots and squares on that isn't formed like the actual route at all.
So after answering quite a number of calls and messages from people worried about me, (I have such a nice family, thank you everyone,) Joni took me to eat some steamboats or taiwanese style hot pot.
So, you get a bunch of vegetables and weird meats of every imaginable and unimaginable kind as well as a plate of extra meat you choose yourself that can be beef, pork or chicken, then you boil it in a bowl of boiling broth, which is heated from underneath the table. There's even a control so you can adjust the heat where you sit.
I chose beef, so I got these. Didn't know beef had shells and strange feelers, but I'm so used to see strange stuff I didn't ever try, know or eat before, so you I doubt that even something like cooked martian will make me surprised anymore.
Before you cook your strange stuff that you don't have any idea what is, you take a bunch of random seasonings you haven't really heard about before either except for perhaps the chili and soy sauce. You then put it in a little bowl and mix raw egg into it.
You can then use this rather spicy soup for dipping the stuff you cook in the broth, so that it can be mixed with all sorts of tastes and let you have an overload of new culinary impressions.
And if you're not used to eat a lot then you can ask the waiter for some plastic bags to put the rest of your stuff into, because that's pretty normal around here.
