I was recently reminicsing about my early days in Taiwan. Adapting to a different culture was challenging, but though a lot of trial and error I finally settled in and tried my best to accept the Taiwanese way.
It was the trial and error thing that was sometimes frustrating and at times humorously embarrassing.
I remember the first time I saw a bettle nut girl.She was wearing only a bra and almost see through panties and had her head inside the window of a car to take his order. I thought to myself, “oh my god,they have Drive Though Hookers here!” Only to discover shortly thereafter (through an embassasing question to my boss) their true profession.
My first few months in Tawain I commuted via roller blades. It was only a five min skate to the school and I didn’t have the $ to buy a scooter. Durring my daily trecs to and from work, I was delighted how friendly people were,especially at intersections. So many drivers would honk as I skated by and I would respond with a friendly wave in return.What a friendl y little town I thought,only later to discover the real reason for their honking. (get the F*** outta my way)
Does anyone else has any funny stories about their early days in Taiwan?
