The last instalment of the pictures from Asia is the street photos. These are just things I found interesting. Some require a bit of explanation, and some don’t.
These below are pictures from Button Street, an area in Taipei where can find all sorts of buttons, ribbons, fabrics, zippers, yarn, etc:
These are pictures from the night market we went to for late evening snack:
The pictures below are from a paper museum and paper store. They have all sorts of handmade papers, and even a facility where you can try your hand at making your own handmade paper:
A few pictures from a Lego store we visited:
Near my parents’ house, there is a foot bath pool. The water is drawn from the natural hot spring in the area. It’s free and open to the public. The water is quite hot, apparently with healing properties from the minerals. My mom said in the winter the pool gets very busy because a hot soak is more desirable in the winter.
Here are some miscellaneous random pictures from Taiwan:
I did tell you I had a lot of pictures, right? Alright, here are some pictures from the Dragon Boat Carnival and Beer Fest in Hong Kong:
Lastly, some “others” pictures from Hong Kong:
If you remember, after my trip to Asia last year, I only posted 3 pictures because I am really afraid of looking at people’s “I’ve been here” vacation pictures. This year, I said, screw it, and subjected you to so many of my vacation pictures. If you’re not from Taiwan or HK, I hope you saw something interesting. If you are from one of those places…dude, I feel very bad for you!
