Looking up at the 101 building in east Taipei. This building is Taipei's pride and joy, the tallest office building in the world. Posted by Hello

This is a scene in Phnom Penh, looking towards a small market area where people were buying the last of their food goods for the day, or eating dinner at street stalls. Posted by Hello

There is always stuff to be found leaning up against the walls of buildings in Taipei. Sometimes a pile of junk, sometimes something as simple as a lone mop. Posted by Hello

I thought I might try to add some color to the page today. I took this yesterday near school. A man had a table set up next to the road. He was selling jade bracelets, ring, and these glass balls. Posted by Hello

Why this picture? When you walk around the markets of Taipei, you see a lot of color, thanks to the fruit and the clothes and the different kinds of food. Walk around the alleys and lanes and streets of the different neighborhoods, though, and after awhile it seems all you see is gray. Sure, there are lots of bright flowers hanging over the edges of the roofs, or along window balconies, but even these colors get swallowed by monotony of the block apartment buildings. Thus it was a pleasant surprise yesterday, as Natalia and I walked from the ShiDa neighborhood over to YongHe to see some buildings like this. Posted by Hello

There are some strange buildings in Tokyo. This is one of them...I can only assume that the design was based on one of the main products produced. Posted by Hello

Tokyo at night. Taipei has a lot of neon, to be sure, but compared to Tokyo's busiest parts, a night in Taipei is like a night in the country. OK, a bit of an overstatement, but Tokyo's streets can get really, really bright. Posted by Hello
