105 Now, 106 Now
The Ramblers gave an unusual performance this past Sunday afternoon.
We found ourselves on the pedestrian overpass at Keelung and Xinyi Roads to film a segment for a promotional video to publicize a charity event sponsored by the Canadian Society in Taiwan.
Dressed in Rambling Wear, we played, posed, and perambulated for the thousands of vehicles passing through this busy eastern Taipei interchange.
Above us soared Taipei 101 in all of its "dildo-like concrete ribbed" glory.
The day started in a local eatery, where a rugby match sparred with the Australian Grand Prix, whilst the sound of silverware scraping buffet plates added to the din. Toastmaster/Bandleader DC and Director Robyn treated the Ramblers to a proper pub brunch prior to our debut on the street.
TC, apparently feeling that only two cameras were not enough, was shadowed by a camera team from Taiwan’s public television station on a mission to document what mischief “typical” foreign residents of Taipei get up to on Sunday.
