// Hello all...just got to Taiwan a couple hours ago. Just got back from checking out the Taiwan Saturday nightlife. Not bad. An He Lu did not live up to expectations so headed over to a hardcore disco that just opened. UK DJs and freestylers, plenty of beautiful women. 98, something...10th floor. A cover charge as high as my room rate (at my terrible hotel). I'm having trouble speaking Chinese without throwing in my Thai. The Taiwanese are getting a good laugh out of it. I'll probably be back in Thailand in a couple weeks then back over to Vietnam. Thailand is a pretty comfy base of operations. (Cheap too). I'm heading back to my hotel in a few minutes to get some sleep and look for a new hotel. Taiwan is pretty nice, more like Japan than mainland China it seems in the short time I have been here. I'm going to try to make it over to the Taiwan occupied islands off mainland China before I leave, we'll see how it goes. Hope everything is well in the States. People are watching the Iraq War developments pretty closely here and in Thailand, I plan to be in a place where I can watch via sattelite when the bombing starts.
