October saw me visiting Taipei two times. The first time was a rainy weekend that saw me break an umbrella and visit the Contemporary Art Museum. All art is in some way about desire.

I spent Sunday walking around the botanical garden in some of the best weather we have had in October. I stayed in the NiHao@Taipei Hostel near the main station.
