There was a 40% chance of rain today - and 10 degrees colder than yesterday - but cooler was better and it did not rain! So out we went to catch all the things that we missed seeing so far in the west side of Taipei. We started at one of the most famous temples - Lungshan. Truly beautiful.
Walking to the Qingshui Temple we passed several houses/buildings like this. I don't think these can be renovated!
Next stop was the Bopiliao Historical District. These are buildings dating back to the Qing dynasty.
Some have been renovated and are in use.
I don't think Sun Yat-sen actually stayed here all that often, but the landscaping was very peaceful. There were three men photographing a young Japanese girl dressed in a kimono in the house - even though there were signs saying "no photographs". One presumes they had special permission!
