China 2.0

My girlfriend best describes Taiwan as “China 2.0” – an evolved version of Mainland China that has managed to achieve rapid modernization while still preserving its past.
Taiwan is synonymous with two things: eating and shopping. And, I definitely indulged in my share of greed and gluttony during my one-week stay.
My stomach screams “enough,” but my palate begs for more.
