Living in Penghu has spoiled us in many ways, one of these being the fact that there is no traffic, like ever. Living in the huge metropolis that is Houston, Texas, we have spent countless hours stuck in traffic jams about ready to cry (more me than Nick). Since moving to Penghu we have enjoyed the quick 5 minute or less commutes to anywhere and everywhere we need to go. But this morning was different.
We were on our way to school and got to a traffic light and had to wait about 2 minutes! The travesty!!! We assumed there must have been some sort of accident to create this horrific back up, and sure enough as we pulled into the intersection, I saw what had happened. To our right there was a scooter stopped in the middle of the road and fish strewn everywhere! There was a poor little lady who was quickly trying to scoop her fish into her basket so she could continue her trip from the fish market to her house. There was even a police officer there to direct traffic while she was putting her fish back!
We both had a good laugh about it and thought that is something we would only see in Penghu, Taiwan!
