During Chinese New Year, almost everything shuts down, including school, so everyone has a week's holiday. Today we planned to go to the beach, but everyone else in the whole of Taichung was also keen on heading North, so we cancelled that idea when we saw the traffic. We did end up spending the afternoon at Taichung's science park though, and there was a really cute little girl who took a liking to our soccer ball. Let's hope her parents give her more opportunities to play sports than most Taiwanese kids get.
