Some links for today: Next Media Animation has its latest on Taiwan's falling birthrate. AIG Taiwan unit sold. Taiwan Brain Trust accuses government of manipulating economic figures. Lots of good info in that one. Taipei Times on fixed gear biking. China lacks growth drivers. DPP expels five city councilmen for voting for the other party in recent city council elections. MOE sends down guidelines for dealing with the inevitable clashes between Chinese students and local teachers and students. China replaces Japan as number one source of tourists for Taiwan. Tobie Openshaw, the betel nut girl photographer, talking about betel nut culture, girls, and taking pics. Keep yourself chuckling over vacation with this.

I am now blogging on biking in Taiwan at Huffpost. Hope you enjoy the first of many, I hope.

I'm taking two weeks off. I'll be back in this space on the 26th. Since I won't be around to edit them, I'm turning off comments. Hope you manage to stay warm and dry; this winter promises to be especially dreary.

Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums! Delenda est, baby.
