Friday. Overcast. 23°c.
3:00 p.m. After a lazy morning sleeping in it was time to head home. Alexander has also been having a bit of a temperature. So took the express train back to Kaohsiung.
3:45 p.m. After collecting my scooter from private parking lot at Kaohsiung train station which cost $160NT for 4 days. I got a surprise to find the battery wad Dead! So Alexander and Chia took a taxi to the children’s hospital while I pushed the scooter home to my local repair shop. That took me about 40 minutes.
4:30p.m. After a quick inspection the mechanic discovered it was the battery which had indeed died. It was 3 years old, so that’s no surprise. Just inconvenient. I had no choice but to get a new one which set me back 1000NT. Bugger!
5:00 p.m. Arrived home with very sore legs. That was a lot of pushing.
5:30 p.m. Alexander and Chia got back from the clinic. Alex has Suppurative Tonsillitis. Ah dear, poor kid. One aliment after the other.He’ll be spending the rest of the evening in bed. Hopefully he’ll be feeling better tomorrow.
