Fish Tales

My life in Singapore Taipei. And then some.

Every night just before 9:30pm I hear Beethoven playing outside my window. And, it’s really loud. Almost noise pollution loud.

When I first heard it, I expected to see a monster ice cream truck serving kids running from every direction.

Quite the opposite.

I found adults arriving from every direction. With bags of garbage.

That’s right. No dumpsters needed in Taipei. Just hear Für Elise, wait for the truck, throw the trash in.

Garbage workers have it easy here!

    I would definitely not consider their job easy if they have to listen to this song all night long! I would much prefer to be a garbage man in the US where you drive up and the mechanical arm lifts the can up & dumps it in the back.

    That’s funny to see all the adults come running!!! I imagine the driver has ear phones with different music though. I like the music….just not ALL night long.
