Last week I went to Taipei for the Swenson's meet up. Random pics of our capital city...
Early morn: Yungho.
Tai Chi adherents discuss technique near Taipei 101.
Ok, so I love the crowded backstreet pics.
I found a morning market still setting up for the morning traffic.
A giant bowl of congee.
Hot pot goodies.
Setting out the jewelry.
Someday I am going to do a photo book of backstreets in Taiwan.
Church and temple in harmony nex to each other.
Emily took me to a bookstore devoted to Taiwan, across from National Taiwan U.
Not just books, but also shirts, posters, postcards, gegaws and knickknacks.
After that I decided to take a walk to Yungho across the Yungfu Bridge.
The Yungfu bridge.
Water mains. The Taipei Water park, a park maintained by the water authority, is at the foot of the bridge on the Taipei side.
It's always cool to see bird life in Taiwan's waterways.
The views are great.
Hard at work in the gardens along the river.
Taipei's rivers are lined with such gardens.
On the Yungho side.
There's shop like this in every neighborhood.
Making fried snacks on a Yungho street.
