The election campaigns for town and city mayors as well as councillors are in full swing in Taiwan now. Banners and flags with the faces of election hopefuls line the streets and large billboards with fist pumping candidates can be spotted at major street intersections everywhere.
So it comes as no surprise that the amount of money being poured into these campaigns is huge and it is not only for banners, flags, posters, and billboards, but fireworks as well.
And one local candidate started off his campaign with a big bang by lighting up the sky with a massive display of fireworks last Saturday night. The photos included in this post were taken from a third story window in our house. I was lucky enough to have the camera battery charged and the camera handy to capture these images.
I just love these unexpected surprises – it is the story of my life as an expat in Taiwan!
