it's nearly may....
it's rainy and grey
and its good to be able to come here
and see what you're all doing.
i have access to some of the photos i took in taiwan
so i thought i'd show you a few today...
no wonder my son would laugh at me before we got there...
taipei is a modern vibrant city.
i think i imagined crowded buildings and no space...
it was often more modern than any city here in australia!
scooters were the way to get around
and they were everywhere.
the central business district was spacious and open
with amazing gardens and wide multi laned streets.
(about five aussie dollars worth!)
after lunch on the first day...27th december 2011...we browsed
this was the door of a shop selling sculptured glass objects
and was an embroidery covering the full length and breadth of the sliding door!
i asked permission to take these pics
but i wasn't game to snap the swarovski crystal shop
or others in the taipei 101 tower.
totally exhausted we thought we were in for a quiet night after a full day
of sightseeing and window shopping...
but later that afternoon
we found out that we were invited out by the amy's parents
to a special rotary dinner
where we kareokied and enjoyed an incredible seventeen course dinner!
it was a wild introduction
to an amazing country and some of the friendliest people i've ever met.
have an incredible weekend...
