Taipei Travelogue, Or: Waiting for the Weibocalypse...

Kayso Johnny arrived safely in Taipei about 6 pm-ish New York time on Tuesday which for him was about 6 am-ish Wednesday morning in Taipei (confused about the time difference? Check the handy clock in the blog sidebar to see when Johnny is! It may not help, but the little ticking numbers are oddly mesmerizing...), where he was greeted by fans bearing flowers and gifts, as always, despite the bleary-eyed early hour, which is partly to blame for the fact that we only have a few photos of his arrival since because zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.... But here they are:

I love the pictures, as always! I think Johnny has the best fans in the world. Thanks again for the clock on the blog, so we know whether it's tomorrow, or today, or yesterday... LOL!

"Ah, how I miss BGJW...."
