Having a full stomach from Alice's wonderful meal, I skipped the midnight dinner on the flight, had a cup of wine with my Tylenol PM, and was soon asleep. I couldn't believe that when I woke up the flight attendants were preparing to serve breakfast already! I had slept for about 8 hours!! After breakfast, I decided to watch a movie (The newest Transformers movie) but ended up going back to sleep halfway through it. And by the time I woke back up we were about 1.5 hours away from touching down in Taipei. I will never leave home without my Tylenol PMs!

I arrived in Taipei early in the morning, sometime around 6 in the morning. Since I had used the high speed rail and MRT to get to Brett and Erin's before, I told them I could do that rather than them coming to get me.

But Brett was there waiting on me after I came through customs. He drove me back to the apartment, stopped in to visit a while, and then he went onto work. Erin wasn't feeling well, but I think my visit made her feel better! haha We spent the morning visiting and sending each other messages on FB and TB, and then began deciding on where to go to lunch. We ended up going to the Sogo Mall via the MRT and looked for a place to eat. Eventually, we decided on the Kaffe Amadeus. It was important to get some food in us to absorb the beer we would be drinking later that night at an Octoberfest celebration.

Rather than going back to the apartment, we decided just to hang around at the mall and have Brett meet us there. Brett called me on my new BB Tour (I was excited to finally have my own phone that actually worked in Asia) and we then just decided to meet at the venue, of which I forgot the name of this place, where the Octoberfest was.

So when Erin and I arrived we ordered beer...a pint of Wartseiner for me and a half pint for Erin. Brett made it shortly after and the party started! It was so funny seeing all the Taiwanese locals celebrating German style!!! Well, to make a long story short, I had close to 4 pints of Wartseiner by the time the night ended. And after getting back to the apartment, I spent a little time hugging the toilet! OMG, first time I did that in a long time!!! Welcome back to Taipei, James!!!
