We had a Typhoon in Taipei this weekend. It was a big one. Its strength was equivalent to a category 5 hurricane. We got Monday (2008/09/29) off and decided to take our granddaughter, Sailee, to Paris. After all both of us and our daughter have French citizenship, thus same for her. She brought her little horse with her and we had a marvelous time at Jardin de Luxembourg. The weather was beautiful quite a contrast to Taipei.
