The typhoon has reached Taipei City and NTU is closed. I am listening to the strong winds and the rain outside my window. Even though it destroys so much I am quite fascinated by it. And if I look on the bright side of it, this gives me time to catch up with everything that has happened here and tell you all abut it. And...maybe finsih some assignments for uni aswell.
You should not worry about the typhoon. Even though it's quite serious, Taipei doesn't get so damaged by it. My buddy has told me that Taipei is called Tian (sky) Long (dragon) Guo (country). These words stand for luck and happiness. In this context it means that Taipei is very lucky to never get seriously hit by the typhoons. I think it's a nice saying, although it's sad that other parts in Taiwan and Southeast Asia are more exposed to these elements.
