I got a chance to see Taipei with new eyes this time. The rain, errr… storm, gave the city a cloak of depth to a point of gloom, but also a comfort that is familiar. Too bad, we couldn’t just stay in as we were just there for the weekend. It would be lovely to stay in the hostel and try to get to know fellow travelers. And keep toasty. Rain is best experienced indoors with a hot cuppa, I reckon.
The brief was simple: get in, eat, and get back. Instead, we had so much more. It’s been a while since I took a trip this short. We did eat a lot. Unexpectedly shopped. And saw a lot of art.
The city is brimming with art: either handmade by humans in a museum, or city life sprawling on the streets. Taipei has indeed gone up to being one of my favorite Asian cities.
