This Friday 5th August, is the annual air-raid drill in Northern Taiwan.
30 minutes from 2PM.
For those who don’t know, this means that if you are anywhere outside, during this time, in a vehicle or on foot, you have to stop for 30 minutes. So make sure you’re not on your way somewhere at this time. It’s not fun.
What’s even mroe worrying is that the Taipei Times reports that there will be a 3 hour drill in Taipei only on Aug 24 form 1:30PM. 3 hours! They haven’t done this before, have they? I’m really hoping that this one isn’t as serious. Imagine being forced to wait in the 7-11 ofr three hours. I’d have to get to work an hour and a half early, or an hour and a half late. What a shit.
