This latest installment in my Taiwan adventure is dedicated to England captain David Beckham, the proud owner of the best right foot in world football.
The weekend began (as usual) with the traditional route of drunken debuchery that takes one from the Pig and Whistle and eventually to Nepal. This Friday's stop off was at Bryan's flat where myself, Will, Ulrick, Bryan and Nancy took part in an entertaining game of Ring of Fire (drinking game). The night eventually ended around 5.30, with me finding myself walking back to the P&W where I had for some reason left my scooter.
After a few hours of much needed shut eye, I met up with Nancy to take trip up into the mountains around Jutung
A few hours later, a two other mates turned up (Matt and V). We continued to sit around dicussing life. By 9.00 we had decided we weren't going to camp out overnight and so took the tents down. Just as we were all about to leave two of the girls from Chutung (Lindsy and Julie) showed up. They persuaded myself (I'm easily persuaded by females),Matt and V to stay. Nancy and Brian had made up their minds to come home
After she had finished her report, the four of us set off. The first event of the journey back involved a drunk local woman getting on the back of Julie's scooter and hitching a lift to the top of the first hill. The second event involved my tent falling off my scooter and Julie going into the back of me after I breaked suddenly. She fell off her scooter but was unhurt. I then noticed my keys had fallen out of the ignition. We had a good look around but couldn't find them
I eventually got home just after 1.00 and managed to turn my scooter engine off using my appartment keys. I dumped my stuff and turned on the TV to see World Cup Qualifiers coming up on the TV. Yes I thought. I would be able to see Becks and the boys in action. Unfortunately the game in question was the mouth watering Thailand v Iran!!. After this disappointment, I decided I needed a drink to celebrate England's qualification. I found my spare keys and then met up with Brian, Nancy and a group of drunken Canadians celebrating their Thanksgiving Day at Nepal to discuss the nights events. Made it back home for the second time around 5.00.
Sunday was spent playing football (extremely badly in my case) against a group of Taiwanese lads and then going for pizza.
This is another short week as we have a holiday on Wednesday. We are planning to have a bit of a sports day, followed by some egg fighting. It should be messy!!
