Above was my first sight of the Taipei 101 skyscraper, at the time of the photograph one of the top 10 largest skyscrapers on the planet. This building is the National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, and was surrounded by public space that people used to play with their children, hang out, and practice their daily exercise and spiritual routines.
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen spent time schooling in Hawaii during his youth, interestingly enough.
First exposure to the markets during the day, here they sold lots of fruits, veggies, and some meat.
Aaaaand of course Din Tai Fung, known for their tasty soup dumplings pictured above, but honestly all of it is good eats!
