TAIWAN - Some Like it Hotter
New travel assignments have brought Julia and Robin to Taiwan. For her latest column, Julia decides to go against the tourism board's wishes and write about the Betelnut beauties - young scantily-clad women, selling Betelnuts on Taiwanese roadsides. Meanwhile, Robin discovers a doctor in Taipei who uses fire to heal, and decides to find out if he can cure the cement plane-seat knots in his back. Together they brave the bowls at Modern Toilet, a toilet themed restaurant.
