Taipei 102

In Taipei this week. The land of the scooters, buzzing like mosquitoes all over the place. Nothing new here, just gloomy weather. No earthquake yet. As usual, on the flight from PVG-HKG someone took my seat again. And again, there's a lot of people that just refuses to sit down during boarding and prefering to block the aisle when everyone is trying to get to theirs. And again, even on Dragonair and Cathay Pacific, its advisable to do the online check-in so that you avoid the queues. When I got to Pudong Airport, within 15mins I was already at the waiting gate. Ok, the 7am time is partly the reason.

Also heard on a podcast this morning (Google for 'TWIT') that frequent travellers pack their bag at the last minute. I do that all the time! At least someone's validating that this is the most efficient way to pack. If you pack too early, you will always have items that you will need to pack later, and chances are you'll forget it. I pack usually the night before the flight.

Otherwise, nothing special on this trip to Taipei. My third in 2007, and numerous in a lifetime. Here are some photos during the trip. Most of the time I'm in the office working, otherwise I'm looking for some Taiwanese food on the street. Most of them I can't find outside of Taiwan at all, so that's definitely interesting.

And here's one of the waiting room at the Taipei Main Train Station where most people are, I assume, waiting to get their tickets since the booths are directly in front of them.

As usual, my hard working Ricoh GR Digital at work, sometimes with the 21mm wide angle adaptor, and sometimes without.
