So this is actually an entrance to the restrooms. Crazy huh!
On the street that Gina lives there was a nice looking bakery. I went it and got myself a custard bun, one of the few things that I actually wanted to eat and hadn't gotten a chance to all trip long. I figured, I was already looking like I was 4-5 months pregnant, what the heck, a custard bun couldn't do much more damage.
When I got home Gina's MIL started making dinner. We ate around 6:30, then I packed up everything else. Gina had sent for a car to come get me. Her and my grandma and her maid walked me down and said good bye there. It took about 45-50 min to get to the airport. I had to wait about 1.5-2 hours before boarding.
To be totally honest, yes, I did miss my family tons, but I was sad, really sad. I LOVED being in Taiwan. It was a fantastic experience. I regret not coming more often when I was younger. There were summers back when I was an undergraduate when I could've taken teaching jobs to teach English in Taiwan, but I didn't because I thought it'd be important to stick around and find my future. I believe that was a mistake and I should have come back at least 1 summer out of those 5 years that I spent at UW. But, I know now that it's not hard to come back. I was terrified for about a week before I came, thinking that I wouldn't be able to communicate as well as I would've liked or that I might get lost, but it was easy. It was fantastic and it was easy. So, maybe in a few more years when the kids are older I can go back again.
