Happy New Year! We did not make it past midnight, we are just that entertaining that we can't even stay awake till midnight. We also were dealing with Little M having a temperature and just not feeling good. Thankfully his fever broke and we decided that it would be fun for the boys to take the train downtown Hsinchu. We live probably a 5 minute drive away from downtown and we go into the downtown every day to bring Little N to school but we really don't make a habit of going down there to explore. For one John really isn't a fan of the crowds and for two the kids get a little anxious when there are crowds of people because they get touched and people want to take pictures of them. But we are making it our goal to make some changes in our life - one of them is getting out to see where we live and make sure the kids get used to crowds. We live in Taiwan and crowds are a part of life.
We have a train station that is about a 5 minute walk (depending on the lights) away from us and we always talk about taking the train more but we never follow through. With Little N having a day off from school, which I absolutely love, it made sense for us to take the train downtown. The boys absolutely love taking the train for them there is something magical and they love watching as the buildings go by as the train moves to the next stop.
