I took it easy on my last day in Hualien. I went to Starbucks. But not an ordinary Starbucks. It was built from recycled shipping containers and designed by Japanese architect, Kengo Kuma.
Afterwards, I went to the central library. It had themed reading areas (e.g., a Japanese area had tatami mats and you sat on the floor) and a book sterilising machine, which might persuade my friend, Annette, to use libraries!
