On one recent rainy weekend, we decided to forgo our coastal hike for a drier activity:

a trip to the National Palace Museum. Located in the outskirting mountains around Taipei, this museum is the national museum of the Republic of China, and was originally established in Beijing. In an effort of protection, half of the museum was moved to Taiwan during the Chinese Civil War. It is now home to over 600,000 Chinese artifacts and artwork, encompassing over 8,000 years of Chinese history.

At any rate, it was the perfect day to explore this beautiful, enormous museum. So... we did. Though we couldn't take any photos inside, we were able to walk around the parks outside and snap some shots (a shout-out to Ben for his life-saving umbrella holding).

and... more bamboo

Ben loved feeding these huge fish.

And from everything we hear, we're not the only ones with an overwhelming number of rainy days...
