Typhoon breakfast party
When a typhoon is passing near to Taipei, it can be the one of the most boring days of the year. There's often very heavy rain and extremely strong winds, so it's not really safe or pleasant to go outside for more than a minute. Anyway, many shops and other businesses are closed.
Living up on the mountain, twenty minutes walk away from the nearest shops, it's especially strange: I will usually spend the whole day indoors. After a while, I feel kind of disconnected from the outside world.
Last weekend, I invented my friends and neighbors to come to my typhoon breakfast party. We all live on the mountain, so we all had the same feeling of being bored and cramped in our homes during the typhoon. My friends arrived in the heavy rain and strong wind. I had the feeling that they were all happy to arrive and see a table full of nice food and drinks, and all the friendly faces. The rain and wind didn't matter any more, it disconnected us from the outside world, but it gave us an opportunity to be more connected to each other, and our breakfast party didn't end until 2pm.
