Honestly there has been so much going on that I think I will mostly tell the story of their visit through pictures... It has been a blast, and I can't believe our 10 day visit is over already! :) Fortunately we put our time to good use and saw many awesome things/had some great experiences during their visit!
DAY 1 of the OKLAHOMANS in TAIPEI
|The Jianguo Holiday Flower Market|
Lots of flowers, plants, seeds, trees, and beautiful things for sale!
Mom liked the orchids.

Too bad we have no idea how to tell the good from the bad here ~~~ we're amateurs :)
|But Mom & I still managed to purchase a few affordable bracelets.|
|And Chrissie purchased a pig for good fortune! [Designed to place a coin in his mouth]|
|After touring the day markets, we headed to Longshan Temple for some traditional architecture and people watching.|
Lastly, we walked through
the Snake Alley Night Market adjacent to
before heading home to give our feet a rest!
It was a great start, and a successful first day in the city!
