I Love The Weekends!

Shopping in Taiwan is so fun (until someone takes your money out of the ATM before you get it!) because clothes are SO cheap! I came home the other night with 3 bags and I had only spent about $20. It is so fun. This is a new outfit that I am wearing... I love their jackets that they have here!

-----WUIAI FALLS-----

This weekend we (Fenny, Lindsey, and Emily) headed up to the very northern tip of Taiwan to see Wilai Falls. I was 2 hour bus ride, 1/2 subway trip, and 1/2 bus trip to get there, but well worth it. We just hiked around and looked at the many beautiful water falls.We get a little goofy on these trips, don't worry. The water there was such a gorgeous blue/green color. AMAZING! After seeing the waterfalls we walked down around town, ate some delicious food, and got to play in the river. Poor Lindsey fell in :( But the water was SOOOO warm and there were a lot of little fish swimming around. I got a lot of awesome stair pictures (They make fun of me because I love taking pictures of cool stairs)and amazing scenes, it's just so beautiful here! On the way back to the bus we got got in the rain (you think we we be used to this by now) and got drenched! Lindsey didn't feel so bad now that we were all soaking wet. This is me "teaching" about the monkeys that can be found in the surrounding area :). I have TONS more pictures... if you would like to see them please go to
