Did you know…
That a month ago I dropped my wallet in the street and a lady found it, contacted me through my bank, and then insisted on delivering it to my work that day?
That tonight a Taiwanese family took me to Outback Steakhouse in case I was homesick for American food?
That yesterday I went to the regular doctor for treatment of tight neck and shoulder muscles and received the following: acupuncture for fifteen minutes, hot compress for fifteen minutes, electrode suction cup machine for fifteen minutes, massage for fifteen minutes, and a special blend of herb medicine all for $7 USD? They told me to come back everyday or every other day. Geeeeeeeeez! By the way, I wouldn’t ever have gone to the doctor for tight neck muscles back home, I just heard that the doctors here will massage you for an affordable price, so I wanted to see for myself. Yep, it’s true. The doctor is less than five minutes walking distance from our apartment, too. YIPPEEE.
In case you’re curious, we pay 11% of our income in taxes right now (6% of which we’ll get back once we file our tax return). And, once we are in this country for a consecutive 183 days, we’ll only have to pay 5% in taxes.
