Gaoxiong everyday life in pictures, 2010

Last year, I published a post with the title “Gaoxiong everyday life in pictures“, but little did I realise that I would have the opportunity to write a similar post again (at that time, I planned to spend my time in the north of Taiwan, not the south, but after some very serious thinking indeed, I decided to move back to Gaoxiong). I write this post mainly for two reasons. The first is that people have asked me about more pictures, especially about more ordinary aspects of my life in Taiwan. The second is that I want to make the online version of my years abroad more complete, and since I have written about most aspects of that before, it seems only fair to post pictures from this the last semester as well. It was probably the one that was most important for me as a person and the one that I will remember longest. Now I’ll share some of it with you!

Please note that , obviously, I haven’t taken all of these pictures myself, but since I’m not sure who’s taken what, I’d rather say thank you to everybody who sent me pictures. Thanks, I miss you a lot!


Just after I came back, Sunny took me to some kind of exhibition. Hi.


I spent a lot of time with these guys, here a the old British Embassy in Gaoxiong.


Jana and Sunny, whom I’ve spent by far the most time with last semester, here teaching English.


Taiwanese people like group photos.


Preparations for Jana’s birthday treasure hunt.


My room mates!


The courtyard below our apartment looks nice…


…but turns quite ugly at night. This is Taiwan in a nut shell.


A nice, big living room.


Kitchen! At least the way it looked before the cockroach invasion.


My room, including a bathroom, which was really nice to have.


The only time everything looked this nice was when I moved in.


A collage of pictures given to me when I left Taipei, it will probably return in another form later.


The view from my window. I decided to leave out the garbage dump slightly to the right.


Klad hest! Teaching Ruby when I was re-visiting Taipei.


Spreading the disease! Vivian, also in Taipei.


This is how fast time passes.


Preparing to have some fun in Kenting. Jana, Sunny and Cecelia.


Still in Kenting, although without all the silly safety equipment.


Yes. Taiwanese people really, really like group photos.
