Today President Chen Shui-bian will be inaugurated for his second term as President of Taiwan. I was reminded of the inuaguration yesterday as I stumbled to work half asleep at 6:45 a.m. by the flurry of activity outside the Hyatt hotel in preparation for the foreign dignitaries who were to arrive. Thank goodness for the little observations that cut through the haze of my week. I really need more sleep.
A non-sequitor to my readers, I'm sure - I may move soon but alas, will not be able to take my bed with me because of certain Chinese customs. I really like my bed, particularly my mattress. I really wish I spent more time in it. Sleeping.
