Another Typhoon Came and Went

Well, last Thursday Typhoon Talim hit Taiwan pretty hard. There was lots of wind and there was a fair bit of flooding around those places that usually get flooded.

Anyways it came and went. It was the fourth Typhoon this year that resulted in a day off work. There haven’t been this many typhoons in such a short time for ages I’m told.

Life goes on as usual. Where I stay there is never any flooding so things are the same. The water has become unusable, except for washing, even the water department said that they recommend that you take the top off the kettle once the water has boiled and let it boil for another 10 minutes. It now looks a slightly yellow colour when poured into a container.

Ava passed all of her exams, which were a few weeks ago, and is now officially in university. So tomorrow she starts back at university in the evenings.

As for me, I have decided after putting on much extra weight that I need to switch back to my healthy diet again. Not watching what I eat for the last four years since I got here has taken it’s toll. So it’s lots of vegetables, fruit and meat for me.

Work goes on as usual, but it’s pretty relaxed, only 4 teaching hours in an 8 hour working day, so there is lots of time to read and to get ready for classes.

I hope all of you are doing well.
