Now it’s sunny outside, and the green shoulders of Yangming Shan are just visible through the haze up Longjiang St, which runs down behind our building. I walked up it during my lunch break to the local Watson’s to get some Tums when, what should I find on sale inside but Tim Tams! All flavors! Almost by reflex, my hand shot out and grabbed a box of “Chewy Caramel”. Surely this was new; there’s no way they were on sale here before I went to Australia and learned about them there? Now I just need some milk to suck through them.

On my way back from lunch I passed a Yamaha RZR similar to mine, and I found that it had even more kilometers on its odemeter than mine does. Over 20,000 more, in fact. Perhaps that is why it never moves. I’ll be lucky if I can wrench another 20,000 kilometers out of my motorcycle.

We’ve arranged to meet at Cafe Odeon, near Shi-da, tonight at 6:30. Hopefully there will be food there, but if not there’s plenty of restaurants around there. And I’m already pretty full from the Tim Tams anyway.
