Top of the World
It is our natural instinct to seek the highest ground. This is the view from the top of TAIPEI 101. The orange roof to the left is Sun Yat Sen's memorial, where yesterday's photo was taken. The crowding and cares of the city all look very small from up here.
I've spent literally thousands of hours in aircraft. Many times we have flown at night over cities ablaze with lights. We know that the lights themselves are just a tiny portion of those cities. The vast majority is metal, concrete and humans going about their business. Approaching the runway, we sometines glimpse this "dark matter" in the pools of streetlights. There is more to the Universe than the few lights we see at night.
Again I am thankful for all the good people out there. Everyone should see this view. With everything going on, this is the top of the world.
