Yes, I was there ... Sunset on Chimei Island in the Penghu Islands between Taiwan and mainland China.

This photo was taken with my LG G4's phone's selfie-inset option that places a picture of me using the selfie side of the phone into the main camera image on the back side of the phone.

This gentleman sat down next to me while waiting for the train to Taipei. My Taiwan friend told me that he is a kind of living god, related to the Chinese goddess, Ma-Zu (popular in Taiwan), who is depected in the statue. It was good luck for me to sit next to him.

(I took this with the amazing camera on my new LG G4 phone.)

My favorite Asian supermarket in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area is the Mekong Market. I like their amazing variety of Asian vegetables and fruits.

Typhoon Soudelor hit Taiwan with incredibly strong winds and over 50 inches of rain earlier this month. I was safely inside a nice hotel attending a weekend meditation retreat and enjoying Japanese-style vegetarian dishes. The part of Taipei I was in lost electricity for several days, but the hotel had generators that kept everything going, except the air conditioning.

Some foods from my last days in Taiwan a couple of weeks ago: (1) a mushroom burger with rice bun and matcha green tea coffee at MOS Burgers - this is a popular Japanese burger chain and the initials stand for Mountain Ocean Sky; (2) pan fried dumplings, vegetables and more for dinner with a friend; (3) the box contains a kind of thick fried potato and egg cake, covered with vegetables and sauces, which I had for lunch

Tonight's dinner: Roasted Vegetables with Quinoa and home made Chinese Pumpkin Pie (pie made from a Chinese pumpkin, which is even more orange in color than regular American pumpkins) - Yummy!

THESE ARE ACTUAL COMPLAINTS RECEIVED BY "THOMAS COOK VACATIONS" FROM DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS:

1. "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax."

2. "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food."

3. "We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish."

4. "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price."

5. "The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room."

6. "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow."

7. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallartato close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time -- this should be banned."

8. "No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared."

9. "Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers."

10. "I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."

11. "The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun."

12. "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair."

13. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends' three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller."

14. "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the resort.' We're trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service."

15. "When we were in Spain, there were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners."

16. "We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning."

17. "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."

18. "I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes."

19. "My fiancée and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be re-reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.

This is the most authentic Mexican food in town. This is where all of the Mexican laborers eat -- sometimes I am the only non-Mexican in the restaurant! I almost always order the daily special and have never been disappointed. If you want Real-Mex (not Tex-Mex of Fast-Mex), this is the place!
