These are from this sort of arts park. On the left was the national concert hall, and on the right was the national opera house. Needless to say, I didn't get pictures of either of those things. I have no idea what this building is, but it was cool-looking.
Taipei 101, the current tallest building in the world, and the view from the top on a cloudy day. Exciting, I know.
Man, this was one of my favorite places. It's the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Garden, and you see those statues? They're pretty much all of him. But, parrot, you're saying, where did they get that many statues?
Let me give you a quick political history of Taiwan. Chiang Kai-Shek was the head of the KMT party when it popped over from China and started a one-party government, so a lot of the infrastructure was named after him, and pretty much every school on the island had a statue of him. It's only been fairly recently (last fifteen years or so) that it's opened up into a multi-party system. The DPP, the current party in power, has recently trying to separate Taiwan's history from the KMT's, and so they've been taking down statues of Chiang Kai-Shek and tossing them here.
Which I find hilarious.
This the resivior that holds the water for Taipei. It's pretty.
This is my Parents' alma matter, Tunghai University. It's a Christian school, and the chapel is kind of crazy looking. A lot of other buildings are built in the Tang Dynasty style, but I don't have pictures of that.
The National Palace Museum. A really cool place, with a lot of great pieces of art, the most famous of which is a cabbage. Seriously, it's mobbed like the Mona Lisa.
So that's it for me. I've got more pictures here if you're interested.
