I’m woken up every morning by the four opening bars of the Johann Strauss’ Radetzky March. It’s the electoral campaign season and the candidates for mayor and city counsellors are promoting themselves quite aggressively, each of them using a catchy tune which are played from cars and motorbikes that wanders every single street of Taipei. Since they follow each other, this tends to cause quite a disturbance for the ears.
This circus has been going on for a months and a half and I’m afraid it’s going to intensify as the big day approaches. But the big day is only on the 29th of November!!!
