Random Encounters: Dogs at the CKS Memorial on New Years Day 2

No, I didnt stay up late on New Years Eve. Yes, I went to bed early. So did the rest of my family in fact, because New Years Day was an early one for us. Shortly after the sun cleared the horizon we all awoke, found a taxi willing to carry a dog (this took some time), and headed to the Chiang Kaishek Memorial in Taipei to meet up with hundreds of other dog owners in the city. Officially, it was an event to educate dog owners on spaying/neutering their pets, making sure they had their shots, etc… . Unofficially, it was an excuse to let our canine pals run rampant through a national landmark with a huge open space.

And the weather was perfect.

Streets Saturday for Week 1 (2014)

On the last day of the year my wife, a lover of all things Sanrio, met for lunch at a newly-opened Hello Kitty-themed restaurant in the downtown area of Taipei. Afterward, she wanted to take advantage of our location and year-end sales and do some shopping. I waited patiently in front and took pictures of the sidewalk traffic, making sure not to wander to far just in case she wanted my opinion on something.

Quotes intentional.


Streets Saturday for Week 21

Another week of shots off the mobile. Its just so darn convenient and faster to reach for something in my pocket than in my bag. Also, its a lot less conspicuous in a hospital where a couple of these were taken. Yes, Im fine. I was just there for a blood screening and MMR vaccination.

Did you know vaccinations fade after a couple of decades?

I did take advantage of some Taipei MRT construction that I came across with a proper camera, but since the photos are related theyll be posted under the Random Encounters banner next week.

Here we go.
