T A I W A N (part 1): Taipei

I spent two weeks over Christmas this year in Taiwan, travelling entirely around the island from Taipei to Taipei, clockwise. I intend to upload my entire trip in 4 parts, starting with Taipei. Enjoy.

Thanks. I was quite happy with the quantity considering I was only in Taipei for 2 days.

Really good photography of Taiwan! Does anyone know if Taiwan was affected by the earthquake in Japan?

All together, your people shots now really make a complete sense; as rounded and well-told chapter in your story of life in the Far East. Can't wait for more of them.

Does it rain much in Taipei by any chance? Haha. Great photos all round there - a massive insight into the daily city life.

Asian culture is more interesting for sure in term of food. It is not about judgmental, it is about the fact.

Stunning and awesome pics and reminds of my fond memories in Taipei less than one month ago ... miss the moments there and hope to revisit in the future ... Thanks for sharing !

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.
