The old and new seem to live together quite peacefully in Taiwan, unlike some other countries, where Western culture is taking over Tradition. Here's MD's next to a traditional Taiwanese funeral (I think it was a funeral, but I'm just an ignorant Westerner, so feel free to correct me!).

Taiwanese baseball games are something different. I've never seen such commited fans as those of 'Brother Elephant's Baseball Club' of Taibei. Drums, trumpets, a loudspeaker and 500 plastic banging-cones (one of which my camera was peering down in this picture), should have kept the yellow team psyched up for the duration of their 2 hour game against the Whales (also from Taibei) on Sunday.

On Sunday I went 'river tracing' which is basically walking up a river, through the river. On the trip there, I managed to capture this great piece of scenery. Taiwan's cities might be ugly, but there are some fantastically beautiful places to visit if you get out of the urban areas.
