Mountain Teahouses

A popular spot for tourists and locals alike are the teahouses which sit on the side of a nearby mountain range. We were told that these teahouses are great places to go and play cards, read, and just enjoy hours worth of tea.
The preferred method of travel to the teahouses.

A view of the city, particularly Taipei 101. This is the second tallest building in the world.

Another view...

Drinking tea and playing scrabble.

Due to being stupid foreigners, we ended up in a nice restaurant rather than a teahouse. We figured this out from the weird looks that were cast our direction when all we ordered was tea and a dish of fried rice. Needless to say, I don't think they appreciated us playing scrabble when we should have been ordering a nice (and very expensive) meal. Ahhh well, you win some, you lose some.
