Back in Taipei City and coming to the end of my first visit to Taiwan back in 2008 . Winding down (and kind of missing home), we decided it was time to see the history in Taipei 🙂
National Palace Museum. Very good collection of Chinese historical gems.
History + Modern design. Like the calligraphy on the glass windows.
Looking fresh is G. Haha. No more lugging of luggage and less walking in the next few days 🙂
At the garden next to the museum…
I recall that we decided to settle for local food after walking around the area, undecided about lunch. Haha. Was a cheap lunch in a shop under a bridge, I think 🙂
National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, to remember the man who found Taiwan… Interesting to chance upon an outdoor concert…
View from the hall.
In the hall… There was a policeman stationed here.
Looking up – the symbol of freedom?
Freedom spotted again.
Last stop of the day – Longshan Temple. Kind of like this picture for the fleeting people in front of the temple 🙂
Huaxi Street Night Market – supposed to have loads of good food but we did not really spot much. By now, night market fatigue has set in 😛 Spotted lots of snakes in this market though.
Was this my last night in Taipei back in 2008? Stay tuned to find out 😛
