October 29, 2006 - Starbucks, looking from the 2nd fl. at Jian Guo South Road (建國南路) on typical day in Taipei. That's to say rainy. Starbucks, on the other hand, outside of San Francisco, has been fair game to go to because of: A) the importance of coffee; B) the lack of comparable competition; and C) not embarassing at all to go to. They say Starbucks is Evil, but how can you even compare McDonald's to Starbucks. I guess there's the slave wages coffee growers are paid in developing countries unless you buy fair trade coffee. Can't win.
