Autumn in Taiwan
In November 2006, I went on a work trip to Taiwan
but had time to look round Taipei, visit temples, eat a snake
and visit Lukang.
26 November - 2 December 2006
Snake Alley is a covered market in Taipei in which
there are various restaurants, some selling snakes as this man was
keen to advertise
I nervously said hello to the snake...
...before trying rice and bits served in bamboo
and cobra in barbecue sauce,
but I drew the line at the bottles of snake penises.
Near to Snake Alley is Longshan Temple:
Other shots in Taipei
It was the name of the restaurant that tempted
me to take this photo. In case you can't read it, the place is called
the "Small Fragrant Sheep Health Pot"
There is even a statue of a camera
I'm such a rebel
During one of the work visits, we stopped off to
look around the markets and temples in Lukang:
This really was the PA system in one of the temples
And I did do some work
This was Christa Chao, who had the unenviable job
of looking after all the journalists, and she did it very well too
One company decided my name was actually "Steve
Me and the other journalists at some of the factories
