no internet access

The good news- I moved to the new place. It's in the mountains, very peaceful. The bad news- I have no internet access out there. There aren't even secured wireless networks. This is probably good for me, because I was using the internet instead of going out and exploring. Now that the weather is warming up, I really need to do some more things on weekends. My schedule had changed as well, so now I don't work on Saturday afternoons or evenings anymore. That is very good for travelling and such.

A random observation about Taiwan. People take responsibility for their stupidity. As an example, when you buy plastic wrap, the little serrated edge that you cut the wrap with is on the top side of the box. It isn't safe, but it's the way it has to be to cut the wrap and not get the wrap all stretched and twisted. I remember that plastic wrap boxes used to be like this in the U.S. when I was little, because you had to be careful not to cut yourself. Someone must have sued, and then the thing was turned upside down for the sake of safety. Just a little difference, but I prefer the wrap in Taiwan to the U.S.
