A coffee in Danshui

A view from the Dazhi bridge

Another ride today, up to Danshui for lunch and a cup of coffee. The Central Weather Bureau definitely got the New Year forecast wrong for Taipei. No rain, but blue skies and a light breeze. Looking around, however, the skies were grey in the west and south, and even in the east, ie, in the mountains surrounding the Taipei Basin. Heard from a friend in Xizhi that it’s been raining every day there for the last few days.

Now we’re just hoping that we’ll be able to avoid the rain Thu-Sat as well, since it turns out we will be able to go on that three-day bike ride in the East Rift Valley after all. And we’re going on the brand new tilting Puyuma Express which was only launched on Feb 6. Better hold on to my coffee, I read somewhere that every thing fell off the tables as the train tilted in the bends.
