Looking at this photo from Taipei MRT it reminds me that my mom had to endure daily commutes from Brooklyn to Manhattan on the subway system often packed to the rafters and un-air conditioned. Me not so much. I know she doesn't miss that aspect of former NYC life at all. Taipei MRT lines are air conditioned and have really added to the quality of commuting in and around Taipei. I was just commenting to a friend the other day that we truly live in the future-my point of reflection was how common it is for me to see people with led glow face at night because they are glued to their smart phones or tablets while walking. Like something out of Blade Runner.
