Random streets outside of Taipei

October 21, 2008 - Keelung, Taiwan. Keelung is east of Taipei on the coast, about 40 minutes on bike. It's a port city with a seedy old Chinese city feel.

December 27, 2008 - Either Yonghe or Zhonghe southwest of Taipei in Taipei County. Not at all seedy or old, just modern, urban and choked in exhaust from burning fossil fuels in mobile vehicles.

I'm starting to feel after 3 years in Taiwan, I really should start venturing out of the greater Taipei area. Or Kaohsiung visiting family. It's a tiny island and transportation is decent, I should just try picking a destination and heading out one morning, planning to come back the next day or a couple days later. I guess it's called travelling. I'm not sure the photography would be any more varied than the above shots, though.

iTunes soundtrack:
1. Wake Up Dead Man (U2)
2. Little Green Men (Steve Vai)
3. Bitter Suite (Marillion)
4. Scratch-N-Sniff (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble)
5. Death in the Park (Archers of Loaf)
6. A Sorry Heart (Wonder Girls)
7. Animals (live) (Talking Heads)
8. Welcome to the Jungle (Guns N' Roses)
9. Asylum (Supertramp)
10. Parkdale (Metric)
