Then the bus,
And we are at the great National Palace Museum of Taiwan.
Where the view is incredible,
And where we had fun making asses of ourselves taking bizarre photos
I didn't take any photos of the exhibits, but the size of the musuem is incredible, and I would love to have days to explore it. The 2 hours I had really didn't do it justice.Lunch:
Pig's tongue, which is delicious. A strange but lovely texture, firm yet silky at the same time.
Then some famous temple. No idea which, I think its the Long San Shi [Dragon Mountain Temple?], they all look the same, and I'm no stranger to temples anyways.
And then, since it costs a ridiculous amount of money to see the tallest building in the world right now, the Taipei 101 building, Michael found us an alternative:
To view Taipei 101 from atop the mountain/hill, Xiang Shan, or Elephant Mountain.
Up there, not only did we get a magnificent view of the building,
We got a magnificent view of the city as well!
Next, time for dinner! And of course, we headed for another night market. Hint: its THE famous one this time!
Yup, its the famous Shilin Night Market. We ate the famous stuff, and they were nice, but not as fantastic as everyone makes them out to be. Still, a dinner at a night market beats hand down, for me, a dinner at some stupid touristy restaurant, so it was good. There must be a zillion pictures out there of food from Shilin, so I won't waste my time. And this concludes our second day =)
