Things are well here. Politics in/on Taiwan is a bit...different...to say the least. There is very little "worry" about an invasion by the mainlanders(CCP/PRC/PLA). Its a concern for a lot of the military - but thats about it.
My take on the lack of obvious concern is twofold:
If you live with something long enough it eventually assumes a lower status on your 'worry list.'
Everyone likes to have their relatives come for a visit. (this is only partly a joke here)
The traditional markets are pretty cool - Sort of like "Farmers Markets" on steroids everyday. I need to post some new pics of the markets.
By the way. What does grilled squid taste like?
