Arriving at Danshui one Saturday morning, it looked like a celebrity actor was pursued by a hoard of paparazzi photographers.
“Nobody famous” a shop girl told me as I followed the mob.
It was a photographic club (I assumed) testing their new camera’s. They’d hired a model and a dozen keen photographers had her posing for an hour or more.
A good method of getting some pictures of a pretty girl. I’ve since seen what appears to be little “Wah Wah” on a magazine cover. Perhaps she is famous today?
A foreign tourist might wonder “what is that large building”? Unless there is a local friend to explain things, you’d never know that all those huge buildings are schools.
This is a good indication of a population density very different to anything in Australia. It makes Australia look to me like a frontier country. That is, a few tiny towns with huge distances separating each of them.
I’m assured there is a school in Taiwan with ten thousand students!
That’s double the population of the town I was born in.
This picture was snapped from a moving bus this week.
Luzhou City is far more bustling than Taipei – this was another education in itself. I thought Taipei city was chaotic. Far from it.
Power to the people.
