Day 1: Feeling It Out

My first night of sleep in Taiwan felt long overdue. ¬†From the time that I left Durham on Monday morning, until the time I checked into my hotel on Tuesday evening around 8:30 p.m. local time (that’s +12 hours into the future from Eastern Standard for all you math nerds), I did not sleep. This was only partly thanks to the¬†rambunctious¬†children next to me on the airplane, but more accurately due to my own personal remedy for jet-lag.
