The giant escalator at the transfer point between the Blue line and the Brown line at Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT station. Taken on the 27th of January 2007 with a Nikon D200 and a 18-35mm lens. Part of the Muzha MRT Series 1.
It was a rough morning on Saturday; we both had to get up earlier than we were used to. We were both teaching. I have always tried to keep my work away from the weekends, but it was inevitable that I would have to work on Saturdays.
We got up early and left pretty quickly. We were on the 8:41AM train to Taipei. Well, I was going to Taipei and my wife was going to Taoyuan. It was the slower train, but I made it in time there. I hopped onto the MRT and arrived at the school a few minutes before my scheduled time of arrival, 11 AM.
I sat in for a few hours and then was handed some material to study for a few minutes and was told to teach for a few hours; I was actually doing my teaching demo. It was interesting, since there is a lot less reading comprehension than in the curriculum I usually teach. The language school was centered on phonics and vocabulary. I enjoyed it. After that, I stayed on for a few more hours to begin training.
For some reason, I didn’t have time to eat in the morning, and was only able to gulp down a few slices of pizza at 3:30PM. That didn’t go well with my stomach. I was already having trouble with the Tasty Steak meal of the night before and now, I was really having stomach trouble.
Well, I got rid of the trouble in the bathroom. I felt really better after than.
Oh well, it happens.
At least I was already in the bathroom.
Suffice it to say that I will not be eating any more pizza here.
The day really ended later than I thought it would. I made my way to the train station at around 8PM, while taking the time to shoot some photos. I had brought my camera with me and was planning on taking some pictures. Most of the shots were interesting. They will be up, shortly.
After that whole incident, I started feeling hot and cold and I knew that I had a fever. I don’t know why, but I was not looking forward to the scooter ride home. I was all bundled up on the train and was paranoid that I would fall asleep and not wake up in time to get off at my stop. So I put on an alarm on my iPod. then I took it off again, since I was already awake at the Jhongli station.
I got off the train and made my way to the under ground parking.
I made my way home carefully and hopped into bed, after I had eaten some fruit. I took some aspirin to get the fever down and slept the night away.
