Heather and I hiked up what I estimate to be thirty thousand steps and forty miles straight up to get those pictures but I actually think Taipei 101 looks best up close:
I want to finish up my Taiwan posts with this one because at this point Heather and I are on the other side of a month in India and I want to get started on that. So here are a bunch of pictures from the various installations near our Hotel in Taipei that were celebrating the year of the Rooster.

Night markets are also a thing in Taiwan. Heather and I went to one, we found all these lanterns:
At the night market there is this truly bizarre set up where you can “fish” for shrimp in this tiny aquarium and all the shrimp you catch they will grill for you and then you can eat. The rods are designed to break so that it’s very difficult to catch anything.
Lastly here are some macro pictures I took at a temple Heather and I went to on our last day when we were out of stuff to do:
Stay tuned for India pictures! I have one of a hawk that I think is pretty killer, right up there with the lantern picture as a lucky shot that’s one of the best I’ve ever taken.
