  1. Ah I hope the weather holds out for this! It’s about to get pretty cold and rainy in Taipei as from this weekend 🙁
    Seeming that this lasts all April, is there any idea when the weather may improve and making it ideal to go? – I’d hate for it to rain and be stuck in the middle of the lily fields! haha
