Being Sunday, I was keen to relax and do as little as possible. It’s a nice idea to work in a foreign city, and think you will have energy to run around and sight-see on weekends, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen.
Again I decided to catch the bus. This time heading to a coffee shop in the Da’an District.
The streets were quiet due to being so early on a Sunday.
Another adorable, third wave coffee house, inspired by the owner’s Aussie influences from living in Melbourne.
The coffee was really good.
And they had some small delicious cakes too.
I was so taken with the design in this place, I bought a coffee cup ceramic mat.
Sufficiently caffeinated, I headed off to explore this district.
Some of the streets reminded me of when I was in Albania.
I wandered around long enough to work up an appetite. I discovered a little local restaurant open earlier than the others, so I had some brunch.
The stir fried vegetables topped with an egg was delicious.
Time to get the bus back.
And I could not resist another bubble tea at Near Guanghua Digital Plaza.
Time to walk back.
It was sooooo unbelievably hot.
I really wanted to walk though, rather than take an Uber. I definitely see more when I walk.
Soon I was back at Yitong Park.
After spending the afternoon out of the sun, I headed out for dinner. Wanting a break from Asian food, I opted for a pizza from Mita Pasta.
It was a chilled day. Perfect for a Sunday.
