The map on my personal entertainment screen shows that we're closing in on Hong Kong.
How 'bout a McChicken Flu Sandwich?
Success indeed results from engine - that's why I have a 650 single!
My link to the 'real world'.
Is this some fancy new bidet? Or just a novel way to eliminate the need for a bathtub? Hell, if they had a mirror on the left wall, I could shit, shower & shave without moving!
Just your typical 3-wheeled 125 cc motorcycle.
"You mean it's supposed to be COMMUNICATION?"
The view from the Bao Li Lai Hotel. Notice the KFC reflection in the window.....
The TOTO sink company - for when you have a feeling that you're not in Kansas anymore.....
Doesn't this little fella look comfortable - lounging with a drink in his hand and a smile on his face. This is the first time I've had condoms for sale in my hotel room. Maybe I oughta check out the lobby bar....
Bicycles, a scooter, and a shiny new moped in the background.
Just your typical 125cc cycle. Note the gas price per litre...
Another trike out for the morning's haul.
Now here's a cheerful looking place to live. It's a worker's dormitory and today must have been laundry day.
Cookie-cutter row of government-owned factory buildings. The local government rents the buildings out to foreign companies and then uses the rent money to subsidize the local population so they don't have to work. Communism at its finest.
Colonel Sanders out on his delivery route.
Bongo player or heavy drinker.....you decide.
There's not much you would have to leave behind with panniers like these!
A Chinese 'John Deere'
Basically, a rototiller with an attached wagon.
CHiPs Jr. - The Chinese Highway Patrol.
I think that they get 175cc's so that they can run down the offending scooters and cycles. After the driver dumps his partner off the back....
Side-saddle on a moped.
Chinese architecture at it's finest.
A peaceful garden amidst the chaos of FuYong
I don't know art but I know what I like!
A typical traffic knot that brings a 6-lane divided highway to a standstill. No one is patient enough to either wait for an opening before turning or let someone into the lane once they have started their turn.
The Wild Ones. Well, as wild as you can be with a pink umbrella...
Fauster hard at work on a Sunday morning. At least they keep me well hydrated!
Taipei 101 - the world's tallest building at 1667 feet.
The view from the 88th floor of Taipei 101. No other building in Taipei is even close in size.
The Taipei City Police get scooters, not BMW motorcycles.
But the City EMT's get BMW scooters with a cab.
Lane splitting in Taipei - the scooters queue at the front of the pack at every light and leave like a swarm of angry bees.
Every block of every street....
A stampede of scooters heading out on the green light.
The next batch queued up and ready for launch.
What can I say....this struck me as funny.
Viewing life through amber-colored glasses at Hooter's Taipei
Old and new - Taipei 101 looms over the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall
Now this is one impressive shrub!
The world's largest scooter-only parking lot. Last Monday, it was completely full!
