Tuck Days 2 and 3: Taitung to Taipei to AIT to Snake Alley Market

 Before we left Taitung, Tuck was feeling the need to preach. I think it would be really cool for my boys to grow up to be preachers, so maybe this is a premonition.
 Tuck was very content at the airport in Taitung, in fact, he slept almost the entire time we were at the airport. We were a little nervous about how he would travel on the airplane, but he did really well.
 We arrived late to Taipei, because the weather was stormy. So, we came and checked into the hotel. Since our AIT appointment was at 8:00 on Tuesday morning, I decided to go out and make sure that I knew where it was and also to grab us some supper. I found AIT and stopped at Burger King.
 Tuck is not impressed by seeing adults eat real food. He thinks that he should be able to eat real food already.
 We went to AIT yesterday. We were a little nervous that they might be hard on us because we had so much trouble getting our appointment. It was actually fairly uneventful. It was long, but not a big deal. I picked up our VISA at 3:00.

After our appointment, Tuck fell asleep so I laid down by him. Abbey went out with the Ponatoski's to find some lunch. They ended up finding yogurt by the ounce!!! They were thrilled.

 I'm thrilled because McDonald's in Taiwan have apple pies that are fried not baked. I remember before McDs in America decided that we needed baked apple pies for our health.

 For dinner, we decided that we really wanted to eat at Macaroni Grill. The only problem was that the directions we had were completely bogus.
 So, we ended up eating at Chilis. It was good, but the chips weren't exactly the same.

 After Chilis we went to the Snake Alley night market. It was really interesting and we found some really cool things.
 This wall hanging scroll says "Land Family 2001". We thought that was a neat addition for our home for one of our walls.
 This is one that we had made for the Millers. It says "Joyful Family 2011." 2011 is the year that Amber Joy was born.
 I went and got a 40 minute foot massage for $9.00 US. It was one of the most painful experiences of my life! That woman's knuckles were like stones digging through my foot.
 Shh... Don't tell Ms. Candace this is for her.
 Some of the others got foot massages as well, and they agree that it was PAINFUL.
 So, finally, we were tired and we headed back to the hotel. Now it is today, our last day in Taipei. We are going to try to go to Taipei 101, maybe do the gondola, and then we are having dinner with some missionaries tonight.

I have no clue what I saw in this picture!
