Event Recap: RTT Taiwan February Event at Elephant Mountain

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan February Event at Elephant Mountain

“If these 70-year-olds can make it, so can we!” That is what was coming out of our mouths after less than five minutes of our trek up to Elephant Mountain. We knew it was going to be a lot of stairs, but we didn’t realize how hard that was actually going to be! It ended up only taking about fifteen minutes to get to the famous lookout point, but by then, my thighs were glad that it wasn’t any longer.     The day was a bit cloudy and drizzly, but we were able to snap some good shots of the city and Taipei 101. We attempted to walk a bit further, but our stomachs seemed to be more persuasive then our desire to hike. We descended the mountain after less than a half hour, and treated ourselves to a big western brunch at NY Bagels.   Although it was only seven of us, it was nice spending the afternoon with two of our newest teachers to Taiwan and hanging with some old friends as well. As always, thanks to those who showed up for the hike! I had a lot of fun! Cheers, Mary

A Taste of Georgia

A Taste of Georgia

Flavorful dishes, homemade bread, and plenty of wine are essential at the Georgian dinner table. Influenced by both European and West Asian traditions, Georgian food, filled aromatic herbs and spices, plays an important role in social culture. Here are a few of the most characteristic dishes of a Georgian meal.   Georgian Dishes Khachapuri This traditional Georgian bread is stuffed with a mixture of eggs, various cheeses, and herbs.  This mixture is cooked until the cheese inside of the bread has melted to form a delicious filling.  Khachapuri is a staple of most Georgian meals. Khinkali  Dumplings—Georgian style!  Fillings for Khinkali can include meat, vegetables, potatoes, and cheese. Suluguni Love it or hate it—this sour, pickled cheese is something you have to try during your stay in Georgia.  It has a salty, savory taste, and is often deep fried to mask its strong odor.   Georgian Desserts Georgian sweets and desserts tend to be based around nuts or fruit.  Various nuts, fruits, and sometimes honey, are combined in different ways to create these delicious treats. Churchkhela  This dessert is popular in many countries in the region, including Turkey, Greece, and Russia.  It is made by dipping a string of nuts, […]

RTT Taiwan February Event: Elephant Mountain

RTT Taiwan February Event: Elephant Mountain

  Still have things to cross off your “Things to do in Taipei” bucket list? I know I do. So for this month’s event, I’m taking us on a hike that’s right in the heart of our amazing city: Elephant Mountain. Elephant Mountain is just a short walk from the base of Taipei 101, …and about a twenty-minute hike up to the top. (Note: Even though it’s a short hike, it consists of mostly stairs… so be prepared). It will all be worth it once we make it to the viewing area; it’s supposed to be one of the BEST views of the city. We can then continue on and check out the rest of the hikes in that area, or we can end there and all get lunch together. If anyone is interested in the hike but would rather go for sunset, let me know. It’s supposed to be packed with people on the weekends, especially at night, but if everyone would rather have night views of the city then we can definitely change the time! When: Sunday, February 19th Time: 12pm Meet: Taipei City Hall MRT, Exit 2 Cost: Free, but bring $ for lunch if interested Bring: […]
