Scooter moment: Visual overload

9 Jun

If this photo were any more "Taipei," it might explode

How much Taipei life can you spot here? Here’s my list:

  • Hello Kitty
  • vertical signage
  • heavy traffic
  • relative calm despite heavy traffic
  • blue trucks and buses
  • as many taxis as there are regular cars
  • scooters
  • unhelmeted child (center of scooter bunch)
  • man picking nose (scooter dad)
  • 4 people on a scooter (scooter dad has 2 more passengers! [sorry if not zoomable])
  • illegal rooftop additions
  • fairly clean-looking streets
  • Western holiday symbols
  • barred-in window boxes
  • an Easy Shop (horribly-named women’s underwear store) next door to a toy store
  • construction (in the distance)

Did I miss anything? What’s missing from this photo? Did you notice there’s not a single 7-11 visible?

      According to Google Street View, no! I can’t believe it. Not a 7-11 for at least 2 blocks in any direction! It’s the corner of Chang An & Chong Qing, by the way.
