Day 7

Today marked the last day of the first week of our trip. First, we went to the Wang Tea Factory and got to see how tea leaves are produced in both the old fashioned way and in the modern way. We also got to try oolong tea and purchase our own tea leaves. After that, we got free time to wander the shopping malls and stores near Taipei 101 and eat a stipend lunch. We then spent the rest of the afternoon at a local high school and made friends with a class of high schoolers from Taipei. Then, we got to visit the top of 101 and take in the nighttime views of Taipei. Finally, some of our new friends joined us for dinner at a shopping center near the high school and we ended the day by taking taxis back to the hotel.
