I set out in a general direction, with a vague destination in mind, but I really just got to see a lot of areas that I haven't spent much time in yet. Honestly, on Saturday, once I had walked what must have been at least five miles, I decided I should probably find a bus and find my way home. But I also ventured out on Sunday, so I feel like I really got to see some sights and enjoy the weekend weather. Most of my time this weekend was spent wandering to and from Neihu (a particular corner of Taipei ~ sort of like one might consider Brooklyn part of NYC).
|Night Market Entrance.|
I came upon the market just as the vendors were beginning to set up shop for the evening.
|Night market ~ getting ready for the busy weekend crowds.|
|Temple just outside the market. It was really beautiful.|
|View from the pedestrian bridge. Basketball courts & river below.|
|Sunset over the city beyond. |
|Miramar Entertainment Park. The ferris wheel is actually located on top of the mall.|
|Ticket for one ~ here I go!|
|The ferris wheel is brightly lit at night - really pretty to see over the skyline. |
View from my seat looking into the wheel.
|View from the top.|
I forget how big the city is - now that I live here, sometimes it seems small...
But this was a great way to see it all.
