Our first trip outside Japan! How amazing was it that we had to come to Taipei, the Capitol of Taiwan?! There is an elegance to this city that I have never experienced in an Aisan city. There is green everywhere and rows of palm tree's on every street. The buildings and skyscrapers-including Taipei 101, the world's tallest building until the Burj Dubai opens- show testament that the people decided they wanted to beautify their city. It's fairly clean but has the smells of side cart food booths, you still have to watch where you walk and be aware of drivers, but everyone looks you in the eye, not to mention there are shrines and temples all along the steets making a casual walk around the city colorful and spritual. While we are here for a business trip, we are getting to take in the city with wide eyes and excited hearts. We can't wait to share our experience with you, via a little place when we return!
