Spirited Away


Jiufen is a town about an hour outside of the city of Taipei
The Jiufen old street is a set of narrow alleyways filled with unique shops and traditional Taiwanese cafes
Some of the alleys are so narrow we had to go up stairs like these to get to a restaurant or store
The stores along the Jiufen old street sold many different things, but this one had hundreds of masks!
A great way to take a break from the craziness of the old street: go to a tea house with a great view of the mountains!
We could see most of Jiufen from the window of our tea house table!
At the end of the day, we went up the stairs to the top of the mountain and watched the sun set over Jiufen
