Sea of Scooters
I took a nice long walk this morning around the Hsinchu area where I'm staying this week. Every time I'm in Taiwan, I'm amazed by the number of motor scooters that dominate the traffic here. It's not as chaotic as traffic in India or most places in China that I've visited, and Hsinchu is not nearly as bad as Taipei (pictured here, photo courtesy of Poagao on Flickr). But it's still pretty much a sea of scooters in the morning rush hour, so you have to be careful crossing the street to get to Starbucks for your cafe mocha!
