Skywatch Friday No. 41: Taipei Story House

Finally, the blue sky appears over Taipei today.  I went out to take a picture of it using the Taipei Story House as foreground.  The house was built between 1913-1914 by a rich merchent of Taipei to entertain fellow merchants, foreign dignitaries and Japanese officials.  This type of European architecture was very rare in Taiwan at that time.  It is now used for various art exhibitions by the Taipei goverment.
