The Saturday before last I was invited to a going away party for Steven, a former teacher at my school. It was held on the rooftop of the apartment building where Patrick, a current teacher, lives. There was a good mix of foreign devils and Taiwanese. I tried some delicious barbecued kebobs, sausages, chicken, beef, and then later 剉冰 (cuo4 bing1 - shaved ice) and even brownies! All washed down with alcohol, of course. A Taiwanese cabbie was my DD, so not to worry.
It was nice to get to mingle with fellow ex-pats and Taiwanese outside of work. Here are some photos, courtesy of Randy (Happy Birthday today), yet another co-worker. Look for the geeky, bald guy wearing the baseball shirt...that'll be me.
Rooftops have an ambiance all their own

Contrary to what this picture suggests, I only had 3 drinks.
And why is she flipping me the bird?!
The beauty of Taiwanese women is legendary, lol
