The Keelung River

I have yet to receive a correct identification of the city seen in photos I posted here and here. Given the prominent sign of the Tainan noodle restaurant in the first photograph, I was not surprised that the best guess by far was Tainan--a city in southern Taiwan. However, the correct city is found farther north in Taiwan.

Both photos from Taipei included Songshan Road and were taken from areas north and south of the Songshan Train Station. Several sights are in the area, including the Raohe Street Night Market and the Keelung (Jilong) River:

Even if the above river scene is not familiar, I suspect some readers will recognize the iconic Taipei 101 skyscraper on the left side of the photo.

As you may have already assumed, my recent series of explorations in Southeast Asia have concluded. Perhaps I will share some more thoughts about that later. For reasons I'll explain in several more days, during the next few weeks my posting might be lighter than usual. Or it might not be. Whatever the case, more is on the way--including some new perspectives on a place I have only occasionally discussed here in the past.
