2 Weeks in Time: A Taiwan Photo Journal

Sometimes pictures speak more clearly than words. Anyway, here is a glimpse of a Taiwan life through a 2 week window on my daily life here.

*** On a side note, The images on this page are cropped and may appear to be a bit off… Just click the photo and it will present a larger non cropped version.

The sign outside of the restrooms at the Taipei main station. It says “surveillance cameras are on”. Definitely wonder how that could be legal. So if I have a sign saying I am watching you while you are suffering fomr the effects of that street food you ate 20 minutes ago it is ok?

  1. Mmmmmm, don’t hold your breath! Pass me some of that durian!! ; D

  2. Haha. I know a lot of people that like it actually but if you are odor sensitive like me, it is very difficult to get over the “smells like shit tastes like ice cream” ideology behind eating stank food.

  3. Hey mang. I’m in Paris sippin’ espresso and looking down the canal at 8am. It’s funny how even at a time like this I miss Taiwan.

    Nice post BTW.

    Keep it up homie.

    Your Pal,
