after the ferris wheel, Island and i went up Yang Ming Shan to grab dinner. the last time i was up there was w/a group of friends and it had a very "camping" feel to it, sitting up there in the mountains eating food taken from the mountain to make the dinner dishes. this time was totally different. it had started to rain as we drove up the mountain-which, by the way, makes the drive up the mountain seem even more treacherous. in the dark the roads seem even more wind-y and dangerous and there are very few streetlamps to light the way. the place we went to was known for it's view and only has outdoor seating so we sat huddled under a giant beach umbrella eating our dinner. the rain had settled down into a light mist by the time we were finishing and then they proceeded w/a fireworks display (which apparently they do every night on the weekends). i totally recommend doing this if you're trying to impress a girl you're w/. very romantic.
and then it was time to leave. it was so sad b/c the time just flew by. and there's still so much stuff i want to do and see...but i guess that's for next time. b/c i just can't resist going back there. i love it too much.
