I was in Taipei in Taiwan some weeks ago as a speaker at the ICCCD 2010, International Conference on Culture and Creativity Developement. As I always bring my camera everywhere and take loads of snapshots I will hereby share some images with you. They are, according to me, capturing a nice soul of Taipei. Away from the boring standardization of the multinationals. The kind of bits and pieces that defines the culture of each city or region.
