Most of the pedestrian areas along the main roads in Taipei are covered - they are actually the fronts of buildings. The sidewalks themselves are usually full of scooters and vendors and making your way from one place to another can be a real challenge. On the streets and lanes, though, there are usually no sidewalks, and you just walk alongside the cars, hoping not to get smashed by a scooter. Posted by Hello

A row of modest two story buildings (not many of those left in Taipei) tucked behind the skyscrapers lining SongJiang Rd. When I walked back here, there was a family talking in the street, waiting for dad to take them somewhere, as well as some young men and women sitting on motorbikes and flirting. Looking the opposite direction from this picture, one could see the tell tale red lanterns of a temple tucked at a strange angle into an unwieldy coming together of lanes and alleys. Though SongJiang is under construction and always filled with traffic, less than 100 meters away I found this lovely sense of peace and a Sunday as it should be. Posted by Hello
