Dewey Hammond November 18, 2016 Taiwan Taipei Botanical Garden Dewey Hammond November 18, 2016 Taiwan Taipei blends city and nature about as well as anywhere. Great habitat for birding in an urban environment. Lots of butterflies too. Sounds dangerous. Former site of the government that ruled Taiwan during the Qing dynasty. It is the only office in Taiwan remaining from the Qing dynasty. Taipei is a fantastic blend of city and nature.
