Life in Taiwan 7

The coming of the apocalypse?
When I left for work this morning the sky was gray and gloomy and the air was cool. The wind was whipping up a terrific sandstorm which helped to make the heavy traffic all the more dangerous. Lunch came and the temperature was way up and the sun was incredibly strong. Two hours later we had a torrential rain storm – but only for an hour or so. Then came a 6.2 earthquake. It’s now a little after ten and I am anxiously waiting for the end of the day, hoping that no more natural or man made disasters might contribute to what felt like the beginning of the end. Taiwan loves to overload your senses just when you were falling into a sense of normalcy.
