how now

    Went out into town today and a former UWRF exchange student, Sean Chang was kind enough to help me take care of business around town.  We had some time to kill before registration at NTNU began and after getting shot-down at the cellphone store so we visited a special exhibit at the Taiwan History Museum.  Afterward it was off to Taiwan Normal University to register for Mandarin Classes which all went very smoothly.
     It turns out that without an identification number I cannot open a bank account or sign a cellphone contract, so we also had to visit the ministry of immigration to apply for that.  Weather today was smoggy and gray due to overcast weather and a temperature inversion, highs around 18c.
