A Long Weekend in Taiwan

The top of the tallest building in the world, Taipei 101, is regularly engulfed in clouds.

And the poor security gaurd on the top floor is engulfed too. Nobody wanted to pay extra to go outside, so it was just he and I.

Before Taiwan, I had never been to a pleasant English bookstore in Asia. This one was so nice, and had such a good selection, I stayed for hours.

Chiang Kai Shek (장계석) Memorial Hall.

I'd prefer to work on top of the tallest building in the world, engulfed in wet clouds and cold air. At least you can scratch your nose.

The kids perect their dance moves in the the reflection of the Chiang Kai Shek's big windows.

And their flag dancing in the pavillon.

Mei's Teashop. Good for hours of reading. Mei가 영어 잘 해!

The neighborhood around Mei's Teashop has great 365빌딩 같은 architecture, and cafes, and delicious 포장마차.

A little bar with a liitle balcony for reading and drinking.

Beer and the New Yorker and a view of the kids drinking in the park.

Oops. That doesn't look like the New Yorker.
