That day, I met a South African. We had a short talk when taking the moving walkway. He worked for a ShangHai company and came to Taiwan for business. We exchanged the impression on ShangHai and Taipei.
ShangHai is more crowded and busy… It doesn’t mean that people in Taipei is not busy. Actually I think that ShangHai people are CRAZY busy.
During the first time I took a taxi in ShangHai, the driver honked almost all the time. He drove vary fast in a zig-zag manner. The traffic signs seemed to be nothing important. We even went against the roadway! What a crazy taxi experience!!
However, the taxi rate is not expensive. The first 3 kilometers cost only RMB 11. After that, every kilometer costs RMB 2.1. Comparatively, taxi rate in Hsinchu is much more expensive :Q The rate starts at TWD 90 (RMB 19).
By the way, I guess that most of ShangHai taxies are Volkswagen Santana. Volkswagen seems to be popular there.
Anyway, I found my English is still not good enough.
I frequently found the grammer error just after I spoke something.
My first words to the South African was, “where ARE you come from?”.
