I visited Juifen for a day. The view from the mountain was gorgeous and definitely different than looking down on beautiful Vancouver. Juifen has narrow alleys and pathways filled with shops, tea houses, food stands and restaurants. A lot to look at, but extremely crowded. And… It. Was. @#$%ing. Hot. My tshirt was literally soaked in bunnie perspiration. Not to mention, I was wearing faux leather shorts. Seriously gross. I can’t imagine being climatized to the weather. People were wearing pants and sweaters!

I was invited to dinner at the Five Dime Driftwood Restaurant, which is one of the craziest and most unique restaurants I’ve ever been to! It was designed by Hsieh Li-Hsiang who is one of Taiwan’s most creative and eccentric artists. There are 2 females on the exterior of the restaurant with curly hair and long dresses. The restaurant is purple, but it’s hard to tell because it was night time… or I just have bad camera skills. The inside is like an intricate museum with 4 floors and lots to see.
