My homeward trip brought me back to Taipei. Much as I would want to visit this memorable city again, there’s just no chance for extending my vacation. I thus contented myself with making calls – actually, waking up almost everybody willing to pick up their phones as I we arrived early in the morning.
With nothing much to post yet, allow me to feature here some of the shots I took before my flight to the US.
Pic 1 is a view of the city from the mountain district of Yangmingshan.
Next is Taipei 101, the worlds tallest building (the challenger, which is now taller, is still being completed), which also boasts of having the fastest elevators at 1,010 meters per minute. I went up its observatory (27 seconds up to the 85th floor), but unfortunately, it was on a foggy day. No good shots that time.
Below is St. Christopher’s Church – the haven for Filipinos especially on Sundays. But for some reason, the place seemed deserted when I was there. During the years when I was assigned in Taiwan, this place looked like Divisoria every day. Today, the crowd is not even a quarter of what it used to. There really must be lesser Pinoys there these days.
And finally, the area where I used to reside. Gawd! I miss this place. Memories.....! :-)
He he. Sarado na po nung dumaan kami, kaya walang tao.
