National Pride

This weekend everyone is celebrating this tiny island nation’s 100th birthday. Taiwan may be small but its show of nationalism is anything but!  Flags are displayed everywhere. Roads have been blocked off  for the many parades and inevitable crush of people going to see tonight’s firework display over the river. Military aircraft overhead  are showing off their capabilities during an airshow. 7-11 is giving away colorful “Happy Birthday Taiwan” folders with each purchase. Most everyone gets the day off; folks are in a festive mood!

Happy Birthday Taiwan!
