Taipei 101 was the world’s tallest building from its creation in 2004 until, in 2010, the inevitable happened and a taller building was built in Dubai.

On our first day in Taipei our PCUSA delegation was taken to the top – the 89th floor inside, with the optional climb to the 91st floor for an outdoor view, which was stunning on a fairly clear day.

As we walked down the streets of Taipei with our hosts, the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) Pastor Andrew pointed this flower out to me, growing like a ‘weed’ by the side of the road.

There was something about the symmetry of this that caught my eye – I loved the lines and the colors. And the food was not bad either!
