Photographs from China White, Taipei

Last Saturday night Carrie and I went out to China White to go dancing with some new friends- including Olivia who just moved to Taipei from Ottawa.  Taipei has a great club scene that I should make more time to experience between the stress of teaching and PhD term papers.
