Our last two weeks in Taiwan we tried to eat less - ok, not really. It was more meals but we also went to Yangmingshan National Park (only Paul didn't go because he got sick so he stayed behind to rest up).
|Another must try in Taiwan is this pepper meat pie - it was a million times better than stinky tofu|
|One morning walking to the MRT we saw some beautiful shadows|
|We were able to meet up for dinner with my cousin, Dong-Dong|
|Really cool looking door on our way to dinner one night|

My aunt and uncle took us to Yangmingshan on July 7. It was really pretty - too bad Paul wasn't feeling well.

Our last night in Taipei, we went for dinner on the 85th floor of Taipei 101. We were hoping to see the typhoon...
|Waiting for Typhoon Soulik|
|Paul still hates the Damper Baby|
|Mirror in the elevator - weird pic!|
|It was overcast and windy with no sign of the typhoon|
|After dinner you could tell the typhoon was coming!|
|Branches already everywhere|
Click here to watch just how windy it really got!
|Started raining so we had to jump in a cab|
|The next day's typhoon mess|
|Got a great picture of the Grand Hotel on our way to the airport|
At the airport, we saw this weird statue of a creature. There was a little girl by it so Paul couldn't abuse it like usual. He was really ready to though. Look how amped he is.
