This morning I picked up breakfast from one of the vendors that set up stands on the street. Some situate themselves on street corners, others are tucked in under the covered walkway in front of a closed storefront. The one that I like offers fresh kiwi and mango juices, soy milk, and various sandwiches. For some reason, Taiwanese people seem to prefer heavy, greasy sandwiches filled with meat and eggs in the morning. I just like to have my mango juice to go with my bread or oatmeal.

Although now that I think about it, quite a few Americans like their Egg McMuffins and Croissan'wiches. And I admit, I do appreciate pancakes, waffles, omlets, eggs over easy, homefries, maple sausage, and crisp bacon...but those are for lazy Sunday mornings.
