Taiwan - Day Four

Today, we visited Taipei 101, which was until recently the tallest building in the world:

The building is a true engineering marvel:

The view of the city from inside:

A view from the (windy) outdoor observation deck:

A giant "damper" keeps the building stable:

You can actually see it inside the building:

I saw this good-looking girl on the 91st floor:

On floor 88, there is a lot of art, here is a piece of coral (coral gem - not coral reef - and therefore acceptable to harvest.) The detail carved into this piece was amazing:

Some Taiwanese accomplishments:

Later, we visited Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall:

We spotted some turtles in a lake nearby:
