Lack of sidewalks in Taiwan. This has been really frustrating for me. I can hardly walk down the streets here because they are so crowded or there are no sidewalks. Places like this seem prime for being run-over my motor scooters.

Here are photographs from the National Palace Museum, the Taiwan National Theater, The MRT Taipei subway, and Night Markets.
Lion Sculpture guarding the National Palace Museum, Taiwan.
Food Stand in Taipei Food Market serving traditional Taiwanese food, dumplings, noodles, etc., Taiwan.
Taipei clothing Market at Hou Shan Pi. Everything is super cheap here. There are racks of clothes in front of every store where things cost about $3 USD each. They wear really fun clothes here.
Handicapped seats on the Taipei, Taiwan MRT subway. These blue seats are reserved for pregnant, disabled, and elderly people. I can't believe it, but no one will sit here on a totally packed train.
I haven't updated this thing in so long. Sorry about that. I am in Taiwan now, avidly trying to photograph everything. Here are some photos from riding the buses in Taipei and food stalls in the night markets and on the street. For more about my journey in Taiwan visit www.ladythetramp.com
Hello Kitty Wine. I did not know this existed. How can Hello Kitty promote wine? Are there 10 year old girls out there buying this?
