My first scooter attempt
Another first for the new year: After almost nine months in Taiwan, I drove a scooter for the first time.
We started on a little-used road, the road in the video. My only problem was turning once; my legs are long and one time my hand became wedged between the handlebars and my leg and I turned. For a few seconds I was stuck and almost laid the scooter down. Now I know to keep my knees out of the way.
After my brief lesson, I drove us to the beach. Fortunately, the path we took had nice, wide streets and little traffic. It was really fun, and now I'm looking forward to buying a scooter, perhaps in time for summer.
