May I offer you some pineapple cake?
I had an older Swedish couple with me, and I was showing them around. On the way back from Tamsui, where we had looked at the boats, eaten special noodles, had ice cream from the Turkish ice cream vendor juggling with the ice cream cones before handing them over to the customer, we stepped in to a shop selling pineapple cake, a nice little shop on the tourist street, which is full of shops selling whatever the tourists may be interested in - and yes, that goes for Taiwanese tourists as well. As I was explaining the pineapple cake and the importance to the Swedes, in Swedish, the young Taiwanese woman in the shop looked oddly at me - and then she started to talk to us, in Swedish! Very unexpected - and another reminder how small the world is, and how many amazing people and fantastic situations you may find yourself in if you just keep an open mind, and an ear open to what's going on around you.
