Mmm.. America

I went to Costco today for the first time ever, not just in Taiwan. Walking down the aisles and seeing the Fruit Roll-ups and the Apple Jacks was like a kid in the candy store. I was in consumerism heaven full of giant boxes of cereal, penne pasta, and Prego sauce that will last me for the rest of year that I’m here. I also had a hot dog, a real hot dog with mustard and ketchup, at the food court area. It was so amazing.

I think I would miss American food too much to live in Taiwan forever.

In fact, I discovered that one of the restaurants in the Far Eastern Plaza Hotel here in Taipei is having a real Thanksgiving meal for up to $890NT a person. They are also selling real Thanksgiving food like honey-baked ham, sweet potatoes with marshmellows, pumpkin pie, etc. available for pick-up. Jen and I are definitely getting in on that, most likely with the pick-up, and having our own real meal on Thanksgiving.

I can’t wait!

P.S. It has rained for about five days straight. Not cool.

  1. Por ti volaré
    Cuando vivo solo
    sueño un horizonte
    falto de palabras.
    En la sombra y entre luces
    todo es negro para mi mirada.
    Si tú no estas’ junto a mí . . . aquí.
    Tú
    en tu mundo
    separado del mio por un abismo.
    Oye
    llamame
    yo volaré
    a tu mundo lejano.
    Por ti volaré
    espera que llegaré
    mi fin de trayecto eres tú
    para vivirlo los dos.
    Por ti volaré
    por cielos y mares
    hasta tu amor.
    Abriendo los ojos por fin
    contigo viviré.
    Cuando estas’ lejana
    sueño un horizonte
    falto de palabras.
    Y yo sé que siempre estas’ ahí, ahí,
    una luna hecha para mí,
    siempre iluminada para mí,
    por mí, por mí, por mí . . .
    Por ti volaré
    espera que llegaré
    mi fin de trayecto eres tú
    contigo yo viviré.
    Por ti volaré
    por cielos y mares
    hasta tu amor.
    Abriendo los ojos por fin
    contigo yo viviré.
    Por ti volaré
    por cielos y mares
    hasta tu amor.
    Abriendo los ojos por fin
    contigo viviré.
