Upon arrival into Taiwan, we soon hit panic mode when none of the bank machines would issue us money, fortunately the 5th ATM finally worked. With some taxi money in hand we headed to our hotel located in downtown Taipei. After our first couple meetings in which we meet with fabric mills and manufactures, we had a chance to try one of my favorite things, beer! We found a Tawainese brewery where the beer cost a whopping $1.50 a bottle and these weren’t small bottles. We love to STRETCH our budget. The beer was good and a welcome reprieve from the hot humid weather, we ended the evening with an interesting meal in the adjacent beer hall. Solid start and more to come.
