Merry Christmas from Taiwan!


Taipei 101.


We went to the "largest bookstore in Taiwan", which is Eslite bookstore.  This building has about 9 floors each of which is fairly large.  The collection of books is rather large, but almost entirely in Chinese with a smattering of English and Japanese.  Each floor had at least one place for coffee or tea, with a totally mobbed food court on the bottom and nicer restaurants on the top.  What was surprising is that this is really a department store that specializes in books.  The sold all kinds of kitchenware, clothing, luggage, coats, boots, and a plethora of other items.  We enjoyed browsing around but didn't buy anything.
