I figured I should try and download a picture from the new camera my son will be using on the trip to the net book I bought for the trip.  We aren't sure if we are going to take the above suitcase with all of Kai's clothes in it or pack it in our suitcases.  We will be in Taiwan for 5 days with him.  We may also get clothes back from St Lucy's we sent over in a care package.

One week before leaving

Hotels are booked.  Paying a little more in room charges than I wanted, but oh well.  A cheaper hotel would have been a further walk to the MRT, so I figured centrally located would be better.  Especially as the price difference wasn't that great and if you ended up taking a taxi somewhere, there is your price difference.  We are staying at Caesar Park in Taipei and Shangri La in Tainan. 

I went and requested some Taiwan currency from my bank today, I should get it tomorrow or the next day.  I didn't want to deal with exchanging currency as soon as I got to Taiwan.

New picture

We received an update, last one was in June and a new pictures.  I am a little concerned as he is 1 1/2 pounds over the recommended weight for his car seat.  Hopefully he puts on weight quickly.

Packet of Documents

I spent almost an hour at Kinko's today copying the our last three tax returns.  I tried to make as much double sided as I could.  A lot of paper I get to carry around for the entire trip.


Tickets have been sent Fedex I should receive tomorrow.

The hotel I was going to stay at in Taipei before we leave for Tainan is only available on Thursday not Friday.  I don't know whether to go to Tainan on Friday and have two full days of touring before getting Kai Monday afternoon or choose a different hotel.  I had originally planned on going to Tainan on Saturday.
