Where was this photo taken? Maybe on one of the outlying islands? I have never seen them on Taiwan proper.

I do like the live chicken on the footboard.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?

Actually this photo came from a student short film project. It was on the news also.

Off topic but I recall seeing the only rickshaw that I have seen in Taiwan on my first trip to Taiwan in . . . . .1992? Hsinchu. Old tired looking guy. And have you ever seen the heavy duty trucks with the single front wheel? Scary stuff, that. And that was in Taipei.
