The Bluesman\’s Killing Floor

May 3, 2006

Make a right and a left, or a left and a right…

Filed under: About Taiwan,My Word...,Travel — bbluesman @ 3:16 pm

I moved to Taipei friom Tucson, Arizona a classic western US city layed out on the grid system, I was totally unprepared for Taipei's geography. It always baffled me how after walking through the campus of the neighboring Veteran's General Hospital to get to Tian Mu Rd. bus stops that I could get on the bus which made a short left and a long right, or the other bus that made a longer right and then a long left. Either of them would take me to almost the exact same spot miles away down in ShihLin by Ming Chuan College (formerly an all-girl college now a coed university). Ah, Ming Chuan college, the fond memories of all those cute girls in all those different grades/seasonal uniforms.

One night I was on top of my friend's appartment building which was then the tallest building in Shihlin, when I observed how the 2 previously mentioned roads (Chung Shan & Wenlin) traveling from Tianmu into Taipei were squeezed by Yuanshan at the Grand Hotel. The Grand is where I spent my first night in Taiwan and where this long and interesting adventure began.

  1. […] How many people asked me that question before I left for and on the plane flight to Taiwan? Link for Grand Hotel. Mark’s Taiwan Flashback is a new segment for these Taiwan stories. How I wish I could play music from my favorite old bands and can’t because of RIAA/licensing issues-but it can’t stop me from band geeking and lighting a fire under my listeners to go and check out these great bands-Mark’s Dinosaur Music Minute. Todays’ featured band : King Crimson and their albums Lark’s Tongues in Aspic, Starless and Bible Black and Red. Mention Eno collaboration: Baby’s on Fire. Fight the Power, baby! Shout out to Jimmy from Denver and Wander Wolf. Wander Wolf is also producing an audioplay of Jack Mangan’s award winning short story: 16 Pieces at a Time.

  46. I wanted to suicide when i saw this pic, u know?
    coz i’ve never seen a girl as cute and graceful as she is, in my life. i think she must have a boyfriend, and i m late even to wish to become her boyfriend. but i would love to see her walking pass through me just once, once would be enough. hmmm…….. i feel so upset after seeing this photo, so depressed i cannot stay near her. ❤
