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

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.

You generally can't send someone more than a couple of full-size digital photos as an e-mail attachment; those files are too big, and they'll bounce back to you. (Instead, use iPhone or Picasa--photo-organizing programs that can automatically scale down photos in the process of e-mailing them.)
