An early morning brought us down to the buffet at our hotel....which was horrible, so we go down to the market and buy these.
Green onion pancake things. oh god yum!
A friend who lives in Taiwan picked us up and took us to the Taipei National Theatre and museum and just a huge area! They had been preparing for a family day with a car company in the center area.
Here is it!
And some more. Here is the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.l
Once you climb the million stairs(yes I know, exaggeration) you can see a large bronze statue of Chiang Kai-shek.
The national theatre and the concert hall.
Just for fun, Squirrel!

Our first day in Taipei was a full one. We head back to our hotel to find a small night market, actually we learned later it was open all morning, afternoon and evening too, anyway...we sat down and enjoyed some delicious dishes.
Went to the supermarket and got some pineapple flavored beer, mango flavored beer and taiwan beer for the night in.
These drinks were for breakfast.
After the Barbie cafe, we decide to work off some of the food and walk around downtown Taipei.
And we walk. And walk. Somehow we managed to just get lost again and again, but during those times we would wander upon temples.
Love all the statues.
Whats in here?
After spending most of the afternoon walking and lost, we stop along a side street for some seafood noodle dish.
Oh I found a fruit market. My token point of every travel, is to try fresh juice or smoothie.
Tada! Kiwi juice!
Hey look! Another temple!
This time there were people in this one, and they were all holding incense and praying.
So we join along. Going from one side to the other, praying. In Taiwan the main religion is Buddhism.
It seems that every temple we went to, there were tables full of fresh fruit and sweets as offerings to the gods.
