It was a very hot morning with the sun blazing down on us and thank goodness for the trees that kept us cool most of the time.
A group of photographers were pointing their sophisticated camera lenses at some birds a short distance away and then along came a group of noisy kindergarten kids with their teacher.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens used to have monkeys that preyed on small kids with food in their hands such as packets of kachang puteh (peanuts). In the Taipei Botanic Gardens, there were no monkeys. Instead there were these spritely and bold squirrels scurrying up and down the tree trunks at lightning speed and prancing along railings close to people hoping that they would get some food from the humans eager to see their antics.
