台湾是吃货的天堂

以前学校教科书里有一句话:“台湾是中国的宝岛”。去了台湾以后我觉得台湾的确是个宝,特别是吃货们的宝地。

我站在台北的马路上,不由觉得特别亲切,感觉跟我小时候离开时的中国很像。我对台湾的第一印象因此特别的好。我出国多年以后回国,小时候记忆中的很多街道、小巷都已经改变了很多,我都不识路了。真是:

少小离家老大回,乡音无改鬓毛衰。儿童相见不相识,笑问客从何处来。(《回乡偶书二首》唐代,贺知章

可虽然是一片高楼大厦,车水马龙的繁华景象,对我来说,却少了那小街小巷的亲切气息,觉得挺陌生的。我脑海中的那个中国是我记忆中的永恒了,现在得以机会回顾,我还挺欢喜的。我真希望这里不会改变,可惜我知道这个世界上,只有变化才是永恒。

Actually, it was not a total wast of time, I managed to charge my phone and checked my email! 😃

The Sydney Weekender (me) is back in town for my Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and looking forward to spend time hanging out with friends.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb was given to me for my b’day this year. I wrote the story here.

I think that we run out new things to do in Sydney these days so I basically just eat and drink when we are in town… Here are some of the highlights:
