    Circular/Yellow line a few stops from mine. Airport express train line I take into the Taipei main station also on elevated tracks. Coworker who is staying there is wisely choosing to work from home...

    My bathroom (courtesy of my coworker, staying there with my cat, 7th floor. Shelf was on a bulit-in ledge behind the toilet, very wide and secure).

    Ah, looks like my crappy and cheap Ikea lamp needs reconstruction as well, not earthquake-proof. This could be the excuse to get rid of it...

    That’s not scary, compared to what came down in the mountains.
    It will take years to repair the hiking trails, if they decide to commit financial resources

    Trains stopped in Taipei, like a 5 or so there, then restarted but everyone was on the way to work. Just like Japan, generally stop trains/subways, take you slowly to the next station, drop you off, train sits there while they do system track inspection. Most of Taipei trains back to normal.

    Lots of building collapses in Hualien, not as bad as 2018.

    Chill kid gets pulled out of collapsed building:

    Those mountains around Hualien are amazing. And the high speed train from Taipei. Glad it's still somewhat off the map for mainstream tourism, at least during non major holidays. About once a year, I leave Thursday morning from HKIA, and back Sunday night.
