A Different Point of View

View from the physics building of NTU

View from the physics building of NTU


When I look out of the window from my office chair, I can see the world’s formerly tallest building.
Because this week, I am sitting in an office on the top floor of the new physics building of National Taiwan University (NTU), and what I see is Taipei 101, its top sometimes in, sometimes out of the low hanging clouds. (Yesterday, for once, I was looking the other way around.)
We are spending ten days in Taiwan, giving three talks between the two of us. Apart from NTU, we have also spent one day at National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU), which is walking distance from NTU, and later this week, we will spend some days at National Tsing-Hua University in Hsinchu.
So far, we’ve had a great time. Everyone has been extremely kind to us. It’s really true what people say about the Taiwanese (namely that they’re extremely nice). Further reasons to like Taiwan are the lush tropical vegetation, the dumplings, and very importantly, pearl milk tea!
