Artsy Fartsy Afternoons

During my winter holidays, I had some visits, like I mentioned before. In between, however, I had some fun doing some indoors activities in cold, wintery, rainy Taipei. In this update I will show you a lot of quite modern (or post-modern?) artworks I got to see (read: ‘lots of pictures’). So, let’s start with a nice January 28 afternoon that I spent exploring the buildings at the Nanhai Xueyuan 南海學園 “Nanhai Academy” site, situated between the MRT stations of Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall (see last post) and Xiaonanmen.

A Visit from Vietnam

Last update discussed the beginning of January and the beginning of my winter holiday. In this update I will report how I received a visitor from Vietnam and showed him around. Day 1: CKS I met my Vietnamese friend Quoc Anh during his study abroad in Belgium last year. In fact, you can read about some of his adventures on his blog. He’s got some family in Kaohsiung 高雄, a main city in the South of Taiwan and after travelling North via the East coast, he came to the Northwest of the country - Taipei.
