In the middle of April, my friend Ron from Los Angeles came and visited me for one week. It was great to see him again, and I think we went just about everywhere we could, which amounted to Keelung, Taipei, and some surrounding rural areas.

On Saturday, when I was stuck at school all day, my former housemate Rodger kindly took Ron up to Jiufen to finish his shopping. During that week, Ron experienced both of Taiwan’s seasons in equal measure – cold and rainy and hot and steamy. Here are some pictures from his visit:
