This is the last installment of this series. We took John on a quick trip to Taipei 101 and Yinge.
John tells me that the state of Florida is considering a high-speed rail project, and he would like to see it happen. Naturally we had to take him for a ride on the THSR.
The ride was smooth. John enjoyed it!
We’ve been to Taipei 101 before so we won’t bore you with too much about it here.
This was the largest needlepoint any of us had ever seen.
The weather cooperated for us.
This building is very creative.
Because you cannot have too many photos of a “tuned mass damper.”
Of course because it was nearby, we went to the National Palace museum. And of course we were not allowed to take any photos, so all we got is the outside.
I took this shot specifically for John. So, here you go man!
The next day we went to the famous ceramics area and the old street.
HC and I had never been to Yinge before and we had no idea what to expect. But it turned out to not be a very good photographic opportunity, so we only got a few photos. But the ceramics were cool.
Yinge’s old streets are rather similar to other old street areas, as one would imagine. We went during the week to avoid the crowds.
Later in the evening we took John to one of our favorite Thai restaurants: The Rainbow.
The next day we took John to my friend’s factory in the mountains in Xinpu. Investment casting is pretty interesting.
Now I know I said this would be the last installment of the series, but I am considering showing some of my favorite photos taken by my brother during his trip.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed this series. We certainly enjoyed bringing it to you.
