Taipei December 2017
My last trip up to Taipei for 2017. I definitely visited Taipei a lot more this year than last year. Maybe the most I ever had in a year. I will probably keep visiting Taipei in 2018. I am also looking forward to visiting new places and new countries in 2018.
Saturday I wandered around Yuanshan Park, and the Fine Arts Park on Saturday. On Sunday I checked out Christmasland in Banqiao. It was a little colder than normal but I still found it very comfortable.
Mural at Mackay Memorial Hospital.
Bamboo house at the Fine Arts Park. It is actually two separate buildings
I had not seen this insulation before and I have heard its much nicer at night.
We sat for a long time just relaxing under the bamboo roof.
Doorway into the bamboo house. Despite being drafty its a nice place to hang out.
I keep seeing these light up balloons in Taipei. They have a battery at the bottom to make them light up
The second building is an observation tower that looks like a spiky hat.

Also, happening was an aboriginal ceremony.
On Sunday we headed to Banqiao station to go see Christmasland. We arrived way before the lights turned on
You know what they say about people with big feet? They need big shoes. Well these Timbs should be big enough
At first we thought it was an ugly christmas decoration, but its just part of the landscape at New Taipei Civic Plaza.
At last, the lights are on at Christmasland
BTW the new Tesla is sweet looking. Ok, so I mainly love the doors.
The lights are on and despite the warm weather it is starting to feel like Christmas

Lights as the concert started
It was nicer away from the concert I think. We could walk around and not have our eardrums damaged.
I also think Xinban Metro Park had nicer lights than the other parts of Christmasland
Getting a backrub from a praying mantis. Its a Halloween decoration left over at Taipei Metro Mall.
