Most people are pleasantly surprised when they come across something that reminds them of home during their travel.
Kimmie Phan Stattman, a sound artist currently living in Taipei, recently shared via Twitter a photo of the Zions Bank in Idaho that her parents sent her.
My parents are in Idaho right now and sent me this ???? pic.twitter.com/FwiJ7RlxSZ

第一眼大家可能會將它誤認成眾所皆知的台北101，然而仔細一看才會發現這個極度相似的建築僅是愛達荷州首府博伊西(Boise) 的Eighth and Main大樓。
At first glance, one would easily mistake the building for the iconic Taipei 101. Upon closer inspection, however, you will quickly realize that the structure is merely part of the Eighth and Main building in Boise, Idaho.
據外媒報導， Eighth and Main於2013年就已成為愛達荷州最高的建築物。
According to The Construction Specifier, it’s the tallest building in Idaho since 2013.
The 18-story structure is now an office and retail building, with upscale restaurants, banks, and law firms within.
The photo immediately sparked an enthusiastic response from the foreign community in Taiwan, with many coining it “Taipei 100” or “Idaho 102.”
