♡My Taiwan♡

When I tell people of my heritage, they usually don't know what Taiwan's all about. Is it China's little island? Is it Thailand?
Nope! Taiwan is an independent country separate from China. They have their own politicians, laws, and President. Most people there are either immigrants from China (my maternal grandparents are), people with ancestors that were immigrants (my dad's side of the family immigrated to Taiwan hundreds of years ago), or aboriginal people.
Quickly, Taipei is becoming a very busy tourist spot, so I thought I'd give you a little rundown via photos.
Hope you enjoy!
