I had a brilliant time and felt so blessed to be able to see my two good friends again - it had been many years since we last saw each other face to face. I stuck to a mostly veggie diet but did venture into the local cuisine quite a bit and with all the shopping managed to get in plenty of exercise!

How I spent my holiday!
Afternoon tea - the drink is lavender vinegar, surprisingly refreshing
I was big in Taiwan! (admittedly, my friend in the picture is extremely small, even by their standards)
