Last night, for the first time in a long time, I slept with only a fan on. Perhaps the typhoons in the region have brought cooler air along with the intermittent showers. I have yet to buy an umbrella in frustration at a convenience store (my preferred method of purchasing umbrellas) after my first two were broken and the last taken. I've managed to run between the raindrops so far...although my colleagues have warned me that one should always protect themselves from the acid rain in Taiwan, no matter how light the rain may be.

Actually, I think I have adjusted well to the climate; I have even worn jeans on casual Fridays! Nevertheless, I have developed a penchant for short skirts and short-sleeved cotton shirts. How ironic that I hate being hot, sticky, and sweaty, and here I am living in Taiwan.
