Taiwan 2011

Taitronics, Advantech World Partner Conference and 2/28 Peace Park

9-14 October and 25-29 October 2011

In October 2011, I was fortunate enough to have two separate work trips to Taipei, Taiwan, and here are some of the pictures.

I flew Evaair on the second trip.

2/28 Peace Park

The new place I visited this time was the 2/28 Peace Park in the heart of Taipei, a memorial to an incident in 1947 that triggered 40 years of martial law.

Some of the dos and don'ts

Not sure why this old boat is sponsored by Tango

I appear to have made a new friend

I also wrote a report on the 2/28 Peace Park.

Other shots in Taipei

The 101 Tower

A band playing in the street

It appears Hooters in Taipei is only "relatively" famous

Nice to see that kettles have their own toilets

On my way back, I changed at Bangkok Airport and discovered a Leicester City souvenir shop.


The first work trip was to Taitronics.

Advantech World Partner Conference

The second work trip was to the Advantech World Partner Conference.
