General Information

Not much going on lately, we are relieved that we've finally found an apartment and are hoping to be able to move in on Monday. I was told today that the owner expects to have the kitchen completed by tomorrow night and that we can finalize he contracts on Sunday. So we've got that going for us.

The weather has cooled off a little bit, or we are starting to get used to the humidity. Today the high is only 88F with 66% humidity, that's nice and cool. The sky is usually hazy, with that kind of feel like it's going to rain. I suppose that the high humidity will do that to you, but supposedly this is the last month for that.

Last month for the heat and humidity because next month starts typhoon season. If you've been watching the news there is one running up into Japan right now, but we've been told that as the season progresses their paths lower and generally slam right into Taiwan. Those aren't too bad as we are told you get about a 5-6 hour warning to get inside. Apparently some skirt just under Taiwan and then run up the coast of China, those run straight into Xiamen and that happens 2-3 times a season.

That's coming in September, so you know that we all have have something to look forward to...
