Taiwan Trip ’09 -=Day 17=-

Late post today because we didn’t really do anything until night at about 6pm~9:30pm.

From 9th Feb to about 15th Feb Taipei at the Dr. Sun Memorial Hall has a lantern festival type thing~

First, while the photos are uploading let me fill you in on a little theory I have about the youth of Taiwan.
So when you see young students wearing their uniform or something and not at school, they aren’t called Dumbasses, because, Taiwan don’t have Dumbasses.. they’re all actually just.. DANCERS!

Yup that’s right, Taiwan don’t have dumbasses, just dancers.. and I have proof too! You’ll soon see..

Anyway..

So at around 6:15pm we arrived at the station.. it was somewhat different from the other stations.. I wonder why..

 

Outside the station, brighttttttt!

And so..

We waited a bit for kevin’s friend who was suppose to come.. but stood him up in the end LOL.

So we went to the BIG lantern displays first, made from students ranging from primary~uni etc..

 

Pandas! Most of the displays were pandas/cows.
