TAIPEI July 30 – August 6 I tagged along with Ian for his Taekwondo competition in Taipei; it was a 9-day trip. This was my first time staying in Taipei, the previous has always been just on transits. Taipei in many ways is busy – the look of the streets – the noise, the crowd etc, somehow reminds me of some streets in Hong Kong. Even though a bit packed and busy, I still like the place. It’s busy-different- that sort.
