I decided to create this blog to chronicle my time in Taipei on a NSF Fellowship. It is important to note that the ideas expressed in this blog are my own and do not reflect the opinions or policies of the NSF, Northeastern University (my home institution) or National Taiwan University (my host institution).

Taiwan and water
For future travelers to Taiwan
Do not drink the tap water! Yes, they filter the water, but the earth shifts so often that we never know if the pipes have been compromised. Most hotels and schools will have these nifty little machines available.
They dispense filtered hot, cold and warm water. I actually didn't know this and drank out of the tap my first few days at NTHU. Nothing bad happened...but you never know.
