Tea Time With the Asians

Well me and the girls headed out for Alishan. A town that is known for their beautiful sunrises. But because of the Typhoon Morakot. The train is out of order. But the town has set up a shuttle system for tourists can still come to Alishan. We headed up the mountain in a mini van. Which is quite the ride up to the top. Talk about experiencing car sickness and we had a crazy driver. I kept thinking we were going to die. It was kind of crazy being all up in the clouds It was amazing.

The Mist

More Mist

Funny story the picture below is the aftermath of me running into a spider web. By the look on my face I am about to cry. At first I was swearing obscenities. My tourettes of the mouth was really flaring up. Those of you who have seen the spiders here in Taiwan know that are as big as dinner plates. I had an image of a huge spider crawling over me. And of course everyone was laughing at me because it was very dramatic.

One thing I learned on this little excursion. Never go walking through tea fields with out looking out for spider webs (so reckless).


  1. Hanna, I am sorry I missed the spider incident. Believe it or not I miss your well placed tourettes of the mouth, everyone can use a little flare up every now and again. Oh and I haven't mentioned that your locks of love sure are luxurious!

  2. P.S. I forgot to mention to you that in order to re-Americanize you slowly you can hang out with my nephews, one can barely speak English and the other one always flashes the peace sign whether he is having a photo taken or just saying hello. You should feel right at home (however you are going to have to quit typhoons and ginormous spiders cold turkey).
