Deats with all his gear and heavy backpack, waiting for Ann to pick us up to go to the airport
I met Deats in the morning near his hostel by the Taipei train station. Found some computer to do some chores on the internet, and then walked a little bit in the area. Including visiting a small garden which was a Japanese hotel that Dr Sun Yet-sun stayed at long ago, now turned into a historical museum. It was pretty much right next to the train station, and was an oasis in the city. Then Deats packed up his stuff and checked out of his hostel. We had arranged with Ann to pick us up for a brunch before she took us to the airport.

We found a 24 hour dim-sum restaurant, and had some yummy dim-sum's for brunch. Then it was off to the airport. We were able to check in Deats with time to spare. So we found a cafe in the airport to have a last drink/snack. It was a Russian cafe! Deats, Ann and I talked as long as we could before finally had to walk Deats to the immigration and said our reluctant goodbye's. Deats was heading to Korea to continue his incredible RTW trip!

Ann drove me back to Taipei and was off to her business meetings. I had a KFC egg tart in the evening because they both recommended it and said it was something to try! I must say it's better than I thought, and it could come as a life saver if you were in China or Taiwan and didn't know what Chinese foods to order, or just want a familiar food which was decent.
