I am back to Taiwan, here is a place where I used to be much familiar with somehow is a bit strange for me because I left here for a year and 18 days.
A year is quite short--It's true that a year might be not so long as what I used to think... it is really too short! When meeting my family members I feel they look the same; how about my friends that I haven't seen them for years... Well, I am not quite sure that if they are all easy to be recognised!?
My house looks quite new. New curtains, whitewashed walls, and completely cleaned room--my room is in a style of MUJI--simple and nearly nothing inside!!
I still can recognise roads or buildings, knowing where to go and how to get there in Taipet city. Maybe it's just because I haven't been to some spots which are far away from my place as well as those I've never been or hardly visited. At least one thing that I'm sure is, nearly everything in or near the community that I'm living in is staying the same, excluding few of the shops were closed and some new ones are open and those are impressing and surprising me.
Even I am in the city which I am from and familiar with, I still need to spend a period of time on getting with it! Humid and very warm weather, streets that crowded with too many people and vehicles, annoying TV news or programs... Sitting in my room, looking at countless stuff packed in many big cartons, I suddenly feel a bit weired, a kind of feeling that can't be explained.
Hopefully, I can get with it soon. I need to be a acclimatise myself to a life and place which I used to familair to when coming back!! That's something that I've never imagined before.
