Ximending at night.  Ximending is a hip cool area where lots of Taipei's youngsters hangout.

Taipei Main Station. The hub for High Speed Rail and the MRT.

Iridescent fish at the National Taiwan Museum.

228 Peace Memorial Park.  It's super pretty.

People practicing tai chi in the park.  They are gifted.

Why I love the MRT part 2

Let's go for a ride on the MRT.  Looking east from Yuanshan station to Jiantan station.

Danshui. A small, touristy town accessible by MRT where Taiwanese families go for day trips.  I really's all about food, walking around, enjoying the Danshui river etc.

The Danshui River.  Not the prettiest river I've ever seen.
