Me in front of the house I grew up in. The garage did not have the metal gate before. The house used to be painted maroon red, and the trees were not so tall.
We took the subway to see if we can find the house I grew up in. I haven't been back in about 20 years. We did find the house without too much trouble, although everything has changed. It's not what I remembered. The people living there now are not taking good care of the house. There was a lot of moss on the steps and the concrete on top of the garage in front of the gate. The roof of the house also was covered in leaves and moss. I suppose it has been very wet, but still it was sad that the house was not in very good shape.

We walked to the main campus of the National Taiwan University from our old house. We found a restaurant on Roosevelt Blvd affiliated with the school and had lunch there. It was cheap and it was good. The university has more buildings than when I was there, and we can see Taipei 101 in the distance.

We took a bus back to my friend's house. It was in the middle of the afternoon, not many people were on the buses and the roads were not congested yet, so it took only about 40 minutes to get back to Tien-Mu, in the northern part of Taipei. I walked around and took pictures of the stores I went to in the past few days.
