  • Our week-long tour in Taiwan

  • And in return,

  • we made this video showing some of the things

  • you might doand maybe shouldn’t do

  • if you take their cultural tour package in Taiwan.

  • I had my suspicions about thiscultural trip.”

  • As a wise man once said,

  • fool me once shame on you.

  • Fool me twice,

  • um, can’t get fooled again?

  • But the rich beauty of Taiwan called to me.

  • Youre right,

  • this is a much more relaxing trip.

  • Ms. Kino Tsai,

  • designer of the Jia Jia Hotels,

  • was waiting for us in the lobby,

  • ready to show us our rooms.

  • The Jia Jia Hotel was unlike anything I’d seen before.

  • Rooms were given special themes,

  • and designed and enriched by the people

  • who stayed in them.

  • I was staying in the Chinese medicine room.

  • There were jars filled with Chinese herbs.

  • And tea.

  • The perfect place to relax

  • after a long day of uncensoring stuff.

  • Now please leave the room so I can rest.

  • Shelley says she has somethingspecial

  • planned for me in the morning.

  • Shelley, my room is fantastic!

  • So glad you like it!

  • You were right.

  • This cultural tour

  • was an amazing idea.

  • Well I’m glad to hear you say that

  • because I’ve signed you up for a very special

  • traditional Taiwanese shoemaking class.

  • Oh, that’s fantastic!

  • You know, a man really should be able

  • to make his own shoes.

  • Youre so right.

  • Let’s go.

  • Well, here we are.

  • Traditional women’s cloth shoes.

  • Oh, you didn’t say it was women’s shoes.

  • Oh didn’t I?

  • That’s great, I’ll give it a shot!

  • Really?

  • Yeah, thanks Shelley!

  • Hotel staff were kind enough to show me the ropes

  • of shoemaking.

  • Oh yeah, this was going to be fun.

  • Focus.

  • Dedication.

  • Scissors.

  • I’m not a man making shoes,

  • I’m a shoe-making man.

  • It smells bad!

  • The Narrow Door Cafe.

  • I wonder why they call it that

  • Oh.

  • Wow, I had a really great time today.

  • Shilin night market.

  • Wow, Shelley, I am so excited to be here

  • in a traditional Taiwanese night market!

  • Well, Shilin night market is one of the biggest

  • in Taipei.

  • Let’s go.
