National Palace Museum, pt. 2
December 30, 2006 - Yea, so remember the lomo in my last post depicting a wonderfully partly cloudy day with sun shining bright and plenty of blue peeking through white fluffy clouds? This is the same day a few hours later. Will somebody just shoot me already?
This is at the National Palace Museum, and I was afraid of a repeat of the last time I went to that museum, when it started raining and I had to abandon my bike at the Shilin MRT station to be retrieved several days later. I hate riding in the rain (think wet cat). If it had happened again on this day, I would've taken it as a sign from GOD to get out of Taipei and head back to the U.S.
National Palace Museum main gate. Another visit is in the cards as I hear it has recently been re-opened after an expansion.
