View from Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world... for at least a few more months.
So, I'm back -- still a little fuzzy from jetlag, because that is seriously one hell of a plane ride, but back. Taipei's a really interesting place... and also: typhoons!
The two questions I was asked most often in Taiwan, neither of which I could satisfactorily answer:
- Why did America re-elect George Bush?
- Why is Kyle Farnsworth still on the Yankees?
Anyway, I'm now off to upstate NY for a day to retrieve my dog, but three quick notes to get my feet wet again:
-Random line from the Mets broadcast last night which I found inexplicably funny: "You can be patient with Chico." Anyway, nice bounce-back win for the Mets, after one of the most excruciating losses of the season Thursday night. Sweet defense, too, especially from Reyes and Castillo.
-It's Angels-vs.-Red Sox time again.
