I started my Old Chicago's Oktoberfest mini-tour yeasterday evening... 3 beers down only 7 to go.
1) St. Pauli Girl - Germany;
2) Paulaner Hefe-Weizen - Germany; A textbook German hefe- cloudy, clovy, yeasty
3) Warsteiner Premium Dunkel - Germany; Dunkel means dark in German; though a dark beer, dunkels are lagers, not ales; great roasty flavors and creamy texture

The wastewater seminar went well...an unusual amount of interest in LDO...that's dissolved oxygen.
So tomorrow I have a full day of checking out the city. Museums, Taipei 101, beef Noodle soup, the jade and flower market, and some sort of Night street market. I am so on the look out for a fake burberry bag...not about to pay $700 for a purse. Might try to find Pays 4 B. a fo-lex...only the best for him.
So the chinese festival of the full moon in on Tuesday...so Robert (the distributor here in Teipei) gave me a box of moon cakes...I will see if I can get them through customs and bring them home for everyone to try.

So Typhoon Wipha is pounding Taipei and China at the moment...it will be interesting to see if I make it to Taipei tomorrow.
Yesterday afternoon we did a "team building" activity here. Paintball was one of the activities...not sure how shooting other teams with guns is team building, but we did have fun. It's nice to see people that I visited earlier this year...my friends from the Philippines and Vietnam.

I will be in Bintan for the remainder of the week...at least until I head to Taipei for some wastewater seminars. Gotta love a job were you teach people to play in krap all day!!!
We will try not to bring anything rash-like home from Asia...unlike Mexico!!!
Have I mentioned how humid it is here...
At least I have been upgraded to business class the entire trip so far...for free!!!
