Landed in Taipei last night, after a bumpy fourteen-hour flight. I think the angry Air I teased last week was taking its revenge. From now, I’ll have nothing but nice things to say about our friend, the Air.
I’ll be here for a couple of weeks.
Jet lag is blurring the functioning of my little gray cells, so the next in the Homogenization of Temperature Data series will likely appear tomorrow (Taiwan time).
Another piece will be showing up on Pajama’s Media, maybe tomorrow or the next day. Surf on over to check. I’ll post a link here when it pops up.
Taipei: Have already been offered a wad of binlan from a guy who worked at a hardware store. A habit from my father, I like to go into lumber yards etc. and touch the merchandise. I turned down the binlan. This is a betel nut, wrapped in some mysterious gummy substance that turns your teeth blood red when chewed. Rots then out, too. Supposed to give you a buzz of energy. Will write about that later.
