I was invited for dinner by Renee and Geoff. We had delicious tacos and non-bake cookies. Yum. Renee is a great cook! When I got back to my apartment there were folks in the park setting off fireworks. I watched from my window for a little while. The great thing about where I live is that it is quieter than other places could be in Taichung, but the park amplifies sound...so if there is noise, then it is loud. So I didn't watch for long.
