Typhoon Soudelor is fast approaching, the strongest typhoon of the year so far. Moving fast in our direction. Having wreaked havoc in Saipan a few days ago, it’s now heading for a direct hit on Taiwan early tomorrow morning before heading to Mainland China….
Actually today has been quite quiet so far up here in the far north of Taiwan, breezy with showers, but big winds and torrential rains expected to start this evening….
The day before a typhoon is often beautiful, with clear blue skies and a glorious sunset. And yesterday was just like that!

Meanwhile back in Taipei City, at least this temple was on standby yesterday – it can be raised up above the floods as and when necessary…
