In late March/April I was in Taiwan for a brief visit. While I was there I was able to catch the last screening in Taipei of the documentary film, Su Beng, The Revolutionist.
I had a bit more time to explore different parts of Taipei this time, such as the historic Dadaocheng district of Taipei. I strolled along the famous Dihua Street, which is the oldest street in Taipei.
There's a fascinating history behind this district and if you'd like to know more I'd highly recommend listening to this Ketatagalan Media's podcast.
A little further way and "off the beaten path" of Dihua Street, I came upon this bookstore.
After I walked through the bookstore, there was this courtyard behind it.
Which led to another building, which is now known as the Peacock Bistro.
Behind the Peacock Bistro was another courtyard and another building.
Buildings with this sort of a layout (i.e.building, courtyard, building, courtyard, building, etc.) were previously the residences of the upper class in Taiwan. In fact, the home that Su Beng was raised in had this type of layout.
