Asia United HashNovember 21 in Taiwan ⋅ 🌧 19 °C
After several days of sickness, finally starting to feel better. Flew out of Chiang Mai Wednesday afternoon, and arrived here in Taiwan (Taoyuan City) in the evening. Getting through the airport was super easy and fast, and then we had a short 30 min taxi to the hotel. We were both feeling a bit hungry, and Jo suggested we get some sushi. Luck was in our favor, there was a sushi bar a half a block from our hotel. Even better, I was expecting it would probably be expensive, but it was ($1 per plate), so after a full dinner, it came to only 420 TWD ($14 US). A beer and a movie back at the hotel finished off the evening, and a good night's sleep.
AU Red Dress Run - We wandered down to the venue in the morning, to register and get our goodie bags (they were plentiful, with backpack, shirt, patch, hat, dish, utensils, and various other unsundries) and met up with a few old friends. Since there is no hash scheduled for Friday, we decided to join in on the Red Dress Run. With all our new stuff in tow, we dragged it all back to the hotel, had some lunch, got some more medicine, and then made our way back to the venue for the RDR. Trail was no better than expected, basically a conga line through the streets, dodging cars and scooters, visited one temple, and then finally turned right and made our way into a local brewery for beer check number one. After about 30 minutes, we finally got moving again, and dodged a few more cars and scooters before finally popping out into an inner city park for beer check number two. This one actually had live entertainment, as a young female drum player rocked the party as we drank a wide selection of juicy beers. After about 45 minutes, we made a break for it and finished trail on our own. Back at the venue, once the pack finally arrived, we were entertained by the best dressed pageant, and dined one some local dinner delights. Circled finished just about the time the drizzle started, so after one more beer . . . we made our way back to the hotel for a hot shower, a movie, and more sleep. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4271695636Read more
