Today we spent with temples and dumplings in Taipei: both are exquisite.
I’ll have to wait until I have more time to write about the temples, but here’s a taste of the enchanting Baoan temple.
My sister-in-law is Taiwanese, so I am really lucky and have the insider scoop on where to eat. This afternoon we ate lunch at Din Tai Fun, a dumpling paradise.
So yeah, I have the insider scoop on food, but one major problem: I can’t use chopsticks. Whipping out my trusty traveling spork I dug into to all the goodies, looking pretty stupid, but still, satisfied.
Taiwanese greens are everything.
Chinese New Year decorations are up. Happy Year of the Rooster.
Our hostel has a “no shoes in the hostel rule” and they have loaner slippers at the door.
