- Lunar New Year – January 25th in Taoyuan, Taiwan
Today My girlfriend and I had lunch at a friend’s home in Banqiao, and then traveled to her family’s home in Taoyuan. It’s really impressive how much traveling can be done in Taiwan via public transportation. Taoyuan is a rural city, but it also contains an airport, so there is a metro line that directly connects to Taipei, and there is a current infrastructure project underway that is expanding the line even further. The last five minutes of our journey was expedited by the convenient placement of the U-Bike locations, one at the MRT station, and another just a stones throw away from their home. It was later in the evening when we arrived, but I managed to get some shots before the sun went down.
