While putting together my itinerary, I mentally prepared myself for 11 rainy days in Taiwan. There is reason to be apprehensive; besides the gloomy weather forecast, I have encountered erratic weather on my last 3 visits to this country, and always the rain.
But this time, the sun blazed in Kaohsiung, and the passing typhoon skirted Taichung, sending the winds down the alleys of the city (Taichung sky video), but not the rain.
And Taipei. The city was surely losing the summer by the last of September, but it kept its blue skies as I explored its many streets, embraced by the sweet hint of fall in the breeze.
I couldn’t have asked for better weather.
