Welcome to Taiwan

We arrived in Taipei on Friday evening via a bus from the airport, disorientated by the thousands of mopeds buzzing around and a distinct lack of spoken English. With no plans bar a vague intention to stay in a hostel near Ximen station, we decided to walk to Ximen. After some assistance from some friendly locals who spoke a minimum amount of English, we found Ximen station and wondered the streets looking for a hostel. Finally, aided by a couple of westerners we found and a local lady who was going out of her way to help us, we located a cheap hotel that had a spare room (most of the hostels were fully booked because it was a national holiday). Later, we hit the town and found a cosy little bar a short taxi ride away from the hotel. A good first night in Taiwan.
