|Taipei 101 Fireworks 2012
Happy New Year 2012!
Taipei 101 fireworks got quite lucky this year. All previous days were rainy for almost two month in a row. December 31st 2011 was not too cold and only had a little rain during the day. We got the right spot with a completely open view of Taipei 101. There was a slight breeze coming from behind us which blew the smoke that was generated by the fireworks behind the Taipei 101 building.
The journey to Warner village was pretty smooth. Going back home (to Taipei main station area) was a disaster like every year. A few car-owners really don't get it. There are several hundred thousand scooters on the road and a few hundred cars are enough to block all the intersections since they cannot maneuver their vehicles safely in this chaos.
