For Chinese New Year, we spent the week in Taiwan. There was lots to see and do as the Taiwanese celebrated the Year of the Snake.
|I added another tick to my Haircuts Across the World checklist.|
My barber even sang Chinese songs as he happily cut my curly locks!
|Here's another "jumping" photo of me. This time I am in front of the tallest building in Taiwan: Taipei 101. What you can't see is that I'm on a narrow ledge and there's a three-foot drop behind me.|
|This beautiful flower clock with surrounding cherry blossoms is in a beautiful, hilly area called Yangmingshan National Park|
|We stayed at the very artsy Amba Hotel in Taipei. As we entered the lobby, we were greeted by some cool works of art. And as we looked closer, we were even more amazed by the artists choice of materials...|
|Yes, it's a portrait made entirely out of children's stickers: Hello Kitty, Pikachu, and Xi Yangyang!|
|Outside the Taipei Fine Arts Museum were these 10-foot tall sculptures of Taiwan's aboriginal people, animals, and flowers.|
|Taiwan has Gemstone Coral fields off the coast and we were awestruck by this sculpture in Taipei 101. It has pagodas, flowers, and people inside the little houses!|
|Here's a close-up of the coral sculpture above. Amazing detail!|
|Chinese silk jacket. Very cultural.|
|Bomber jacket, denim shorts, and shoes! Très chic!|
|Casual sweater on a cool winter day.|
|Matching orange jackets for dog and owner!|
