Story: Charity Sale

Slug: Charity Sale (1’37’’)

A charity sale to benefit elderly people was held in front of Taipei City Hall on Sunday. Bargain-hunters from Taiwan and abroad were out in force, and were spending freely, knowing that their purchases were going to help a good cause.##

A Mexican Mariachi band was flown in to open the sale, and a troupe of Turkish Belly dancers provided half-time entertainment. It was a cold and rainy morning, but the music and dancing seemed to brighten people’s spirits as they roamed the bazaar, looking for a deal.

We're here on a conference visit and we were just walking to see Taipei 101. Then we heard Mexican music and we're from Mexico, so we just came and we stayed.

後來聽到墨西哥音樂 我們是從墨西哥來的
所以就來看看 那也順便留下來了

According to the organizers, all 150 booths were rented out, 30 by trade and cultural offices. While the adults had fun shopping and trying out exotic foods, kids got a chance to experience the hardships that accompany old age.
