Wow, April came and went in a flash. As did the bus on which I had left my wallet. Dodging cars, pedestrians, and stray dogs, I sprinted the length of 3 stop lights to catch it. After rummaging around and under seats, and inquiring with passengers in semi-intelligible Mandarin, I had to admit defeat. My wallet was gone
Losing a wallet can be a frustrating experience. Losing a wallet while traveling can be a near disaster. Credit cards, ATM card, driver’s license… all need to be replaced, not an easy task from abroad. Fortunately the good people of Taiwan are honest and caring, and my wallet was returned to a nearby police station with all contents intact. Crisis averted
That was about all the excitement we could handle this month…
Back to “normal” life, we’ve managed to keep full bellies and even fuller schedules… At night we’ve explored the culinary opportunities that Taipei has to offer, and by day I’ve been studying Chinese and guitar, and Winnie has been learning the flute and oil and Chinese watercolor painting.
Outside of these activities we’ve largely been home bodies. Financially things have been much the same… our expenses were quite similar to March. All of the details of our expenses are shared below in various formats and depth. Questions? Please use the comments section to add to the conversation, and check us out on Facebook or Twitter
