 Last Sunday we climbed the tallest building in the world. Taipei 101, for a charity event organised by the Canadian Society here. It was hot work in a stairwell without aircon but it was a fun day.

35 minutes and1899 steps later and we were there. It was fun at the top. A live band, food, drinks and an amazing view of Taipei.

 A week to two ago saw a little journey out of the city to the Lin Family Gardens. A well known historical mansion surrounded by beautiful gardens and ponds bursting with carp. Mmmmmmmm - carp.


There were big ponds, bridges and big stone walls everywhere.

 Li's first orchid certainly brightened up our room.
