【看CP學英文】不少老人家、低收入戶以資源回收維生,大包小包的回收物品必須靠機車來載送,路邊不時都能看到他們辛苦的身影。然而,這對初訪台灣的外籍人士來說相當新奇,一名國外網友週四在Reddit分享一張台北路邊隨意捕捉的垃圾山照片,引起網友熱議。

Taiwanese elderly and low-income households often rely on recycling for their livelihood. They usually use motorcycles to transport the collected items to the recycling stations.

Yet, this view is quite new to expatriates living Taiwan, including one foreigner who shared a colorful snap of a “garbage mountain motorcycle” in an unknown Taipei street on Reddit on Thursday, stirring an online discussion among people living in Taiwan.

照片中,一台Yamaha機車停在路邊停車格內,從車頭到車尾堆疊著一包包垃圾,尾端部分用繩子將垃圾與機車綑起來,體積龐大卻穩固如山,這幅景象讓外國網友驚奇連連。

The photo shows a Yamaha motorcycle parked in a parking space on the side of the road, with bags of garbage stacked from front to back. 

There is also a rope tying more garbage to the motorcycle, making it look like a huge but stable “mountain.”

照片引起網友熱議,紛紛留言寫道,「用這招可以防止其他摩托車停靠太近」、「這根本是以防Foodpanda外送員騎太快撞上的緩衝包」、「太厲害了!」

The stunning image has attracted many users’ attention, with some saying that’s “surely a great tactic to keep others from parking their motorbikes too close.” 

Another speculated that “it’s a cushion in case the Foodpanda driver comes in too fast,” while a third person said in awe: “So skillful!”
