Taiwan Update

I am in Taipei, Taiwan, and at The Grand Hotel Taipei. I wanted to keep my two loves updated on what I am up to here, so I thought I would post a couple pictures for them. Also, the comment function did not seem to work on my last post, maybe because I posted from my iPhone? Not sure, we'll see if this one works from my computer.

The hotel is a HUGE Chinese palace style building, and is really pretty amazing. Here is a pic of the front lobby, which is even bigger than it looks here. I will try to take some pictures of the outside sometime today and put those up as well.

Here is a picture from the window of the restaurant I ate in last night, overlooking the Keelung River and downtown Taipei. Had some awesome noodles with beef, and diced chicken with chili sauce (spicy!), and some great Oolong tea. The picture doesn't quite do the view justice, and as the sun set and the lights in the city came on, it was really nice. Notice Taipei 101, the world's tallest building, on the right side of the picture.

Your girls came to visit at school yesterday. I can't believe how big Elliana is now! She was so alert and interactive! She was smiling and "talking". I am sure that you are really missing them. Good thing it's a short trip!

Elliana and I are missing Daddy LOTS! The hotel looks great (wish we were there too). Elliana is doing well. She seems to be getting bigger and bigger each day. Today she was fascinated with her hands. Last night was unbelievable as she slept from 10pm until 9am. She must know to be extra good to Mommy when Daddy is away.
