More^11 Taiwan

Hi folks,

More Taiwan photos. These are from Taipei, both the de-facto capital and the most populous city in this island de-facto nation. 2.6M people live here, of the ~23M in the state. This set was taken near the Taipower building and associated subway station. I was doing laundry in the laundromat immediately outside the station. This was boring, so I decided to do a little photo expedition, and you can see some of the results....

Scooters rule the streets here, though there are frequent incursions into the throng by buses, cars, heavy-duty trucks, and even pedestrians.

Strangely, almost all of the graffiti that I saw in Taipei is in Roman-type characters, not in Chinese-type characters.

Traffic and buildings, taken from one of the multitude of pedestrian bridges that span the larger avenues.

Cheers! generalist
