Check out my new tatami house sandals

I bought these in a little open-front shop in Shilin that specializes in tatamis. The sandals are factory-made, but they were making the tatami mats by hand right there in the shop. I asked the shop-keeper if they are comfortable to sleep on; he said: "Very!"

It was right there in the store, as I was buying these sandals, that the idea for my first radio program came to mind: "Taiwan Livelihoods--Old and New."
