Dim Sum, Spa, and Puppets in Taipei

Went to Taipei on business and the company hosted a lunch at the Grand hotel. The restaurant there is known for its Dim Sum, so we chowed down on some yummy stuff. We then headed to the National Palace Museum and then ended up at Cheerlife Spa and Restaurant. Set along the side of a mountain, it has very pretty waterfalls

Also was treated to a puppet show at the end of our conference. Click here for a gallery of pictures from the show

Gutentag von Dresden

Recently came back from Dresden for business. Had a chance to shoot some more pics for the company and then walked around the downtown area for some more pictures. Dresden had to be completely rebuilt after the Allied bombing in WWII, including all of the buildings in the downtown area. After the Iron Curtain collapsed, Germany undertook a restoration project, which included cataloging and then using computer models to reconstruct buildings from the rubble left over after the war.
