Chiang Kai-shek Memorial, Shilin Night Market, Taipei, Taiwan

Not letting the rain get the advantage, our first stop in Taipei leads us to a national monument: Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, in memory of the former Taiwanese president.

In the nearby 2-28 Peace Park, we took a refreshing stroll in the misty air.

A subway ride later on Dihua Street, we explored hundreds of small shops selling textiles and dried foods.

  1. Such beautiful grounds must be a rainy season there. I remember hearing about Chiang Kai Shek as a child in school. Lots to see at the outside market. Interesting don’t see that many cars but lots of people throughout all the countries you have gone to. Had a friend born in Taiwan one of my best friends from work. Interesting dish you have Jennifer. Enjoy love ya both God bless
