Week 42: Taiwan-Alicante

Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:59

At the beginning of the week I was still in Taipei. The trip back to Alicante started Sunday evening and ended about 28 hours later on Monday. So this week’s PAW consists of some “leftovers” from Taipei and the usual slices of Alicante life.

It rains a lot in Taipei, and there is a lot of related infrastructure. For example, hooks for raincoats on the OUTSIDE of a building (but covered) so that the floor inside does not get dripped on:

A couple is getting married:

Typical sidestreet to Yongji Street:

Sign on restaurant door. I was aware that US beef had problems in Korea but did not know that this extended to Taiwan. The reasons are similar; people do not want meat from cows that have been fed medications to make them grow faster or leaner:

After taking the above picture, I walked back to my hotel, picked up my suitcase and waited for the driver who took me to the airport. The rest of the images are from back home in Alicante.

It is late October, but breakfast can still be enjoyed outdoors:

On my way to work there is a flour mill. This week a rather striking mural appeared on the building:

Detail of the mural. I have no idea who and why painted this. Given the location and scale, it must have been with the company’s consent:

I continued my ongoing project documenting lovely Beatrice’s pregnancy. She has 7 weeks to go:

Towards the end of the week we had a couple of real autumnal days:

But good weather returned for the weekend. Here is one of my dog-walk pictures, birthday wishes and a declaration of love:

On returning from the dog walk, I found my other animal enjoying the sun in his usual regal manner:
