Taipei - March 1st

1 March 2010 – Hot and muggy in Taipei once again. I thought Taipei was going to be in the 60s and 70s but with the humidity it seems closer to 80. A banner along the street down from the hotel with a nice park splitting the road.

Another trip to Daan Forest Park with playground for the children.

Next a visit to the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial.

A short taxi drive back to the hotel. Tian and I walk 3 long blocks to Burger King to gather supper and stop at the 7-11 on the way back for drinks and candy before returning to the hotel. After supper and candy the children get so rowdy that we get a knock on the door to 'keep it quiet'. Guess who is mortified? Finally peace and quiet, even if I do feel like I've been caned by two children, sore from head to foot.

  2. Tim...oh my gosh what BEAUTIFUL photos! WOW that place is just beautiful and I was going to ask about the weather, I wish it were back in the 80's here.

    Looks like the kids are getting really close, I love the photo of your son with his arm around his sister, very sweet.

    God Bless you and your family.

  8. Love the photos of the kids together. Linked here from the MAAWC group; love following different family trips.

    When we were in Mongolia, our daughter screamed and cried so loud that the building superintendent knocked on the door because the neighbors reported a DRUNK man screaming and crying so I completely understand your mortification! (: We lived through it--at least your kids were happy!
