Kelly and I spent our 24th anniversary on a day trip in Taipei with our kids and I'll be posting pictures this week of our adventure. Today's photos are of the second tallest building in the world, the Taipei 101. For your information, I've also added pictures to previous posts from the time we arrived in Taiwan on August 16 where I had just added text originally. This very first picture is what I saw the moment I stepped off the shuttle bus and I was blown away and snapped my first shot.
There were a lot of high end retail shops with big names and I thought my Dickson friends would appreciate this one.
Views from the 89th floor were spectacular.
There is this massive weight that serves as a counterweight to stabilize the building if it were to shift with the wind to keep the building straight. It's rather remarkable.
