commute photo essay - fin

Taida Main Gate (台大大門口). Upon crossing that last intersection, there's a small plaza to cross to get to the main gate.

The language center is on the other side of campus, a good 10-15 minute walk. Royal Palms Boulevard is the main strip through campus, leading to the main library, which I guess is the centerpiece of campus. To get to the language center I have to ride to the library and then continue off to the left to that far edge of campus.

Thanks for watching. There are some stray lomos from the commute that I'll still sneak in.

so exactly how long (in miles/kilometers) is this commute? and how long (hours, minutes, etc) does it actually take you to get there? at least you have interesting scenery on your way there. i just get on a boring highway, trying to dodge slow drivers. :)

Um, yea, according to this blog, it takes nearly two months. But really it's no more than 3 miles to get to the language building, and if I leave before 7:30, I can make it to 8:00 class with a stop to grab a pastry.

When it rains, I take a bus which always emphasizes the freedom involved in riding a bike.

If dodging slow drivers is such a problem, you might have to tell Whit to convert your Acura back to a normal car! XD j/k
