|Can you see what I can see?|
Touchdown Taipei and its a refreshing new feeling. Pleasantly cold with mist in the air, driver on the left hand side, and phone as good as brick we headed to hotel in Ximending, a street popular with youths. The plan was to head to Taipei 101 and get a birds eye view of city. But a hungry mind cannot think so food first and we were in the centre of Ximending night market. Mee Sua, Sa long paw, ... and I dare say, beef cubes. To cap it off, as they say when in Rome be a roman but when in Taipei, drink bubble tea (i made it up, haha).
|Wet and Shiny|
Taipei 101 is structural engineer's dream. A 500 meter high building constructed in seismically active zone, and with wind reaching speed as high as 75 km/h, this one is an engineering marvel. I was standing right in front of it, trying to strike a conversation. But as shy it was, decided to hide behind the clouds for the first look.
|Taipei 101 is so big that even clouds are in lower atmosphere.|
We can't see the top right now but may be we will be able to see the bottom from top. With that hope, we took the amazingly fast lift.
|Oh well, it is amazing from up here, isn't it|
|Tuned Mass Damper|
|In to the thin air|
|For me, the view is multiplied|
|With the nightfall|
|Chiang Kai-Shek memorial|
|The train rides are experience in itself|
We decided to spend a day in Shifun. A touristy village with an amazing waterfall.
|I am in loss of words|
|I want to live again|
We will hit the road soon again, till then chao :)
