Friday was a crazy day.
We weren’t sure what was going to happen. We got news that Typhoon Soulik, which was gaining strength as it made its way toward Taiwan, was going to hit sometime that day. Hawaiian Airlines decided to cancel its flight out of Taipei — it was postponed to Saturday — and folks were concerned about the potential disaster the typhoon could cause this densely populated city.
So what did we do?
We headed out. And without an umbrella.
We hit a 123-year-old tea shop to sample locally grown and processed tea, then ate at a fancy new Italian Restaurant. All before the typhoon hit.
Don’t worry. We’re OK. See? I’m blogging!
Here’s what Friday looked like — before the storm:
Thanks to everyone who sent us emails, text messages, DMs, tweets, and Facebook and Instagram comments about the storm and your concern. We really appreciate it!
