BM #3: Blue Trucks in Business

Blue Monday #3 - Blue Trucks in Business

 I live in Taipei County, 20 minutes away from Taipei City by local train and about an hour by bus. What I like most living in this place is very convenient. The train station is just in front of the place where I live. We have morning and evening fresh market. The morning market is what they called "Traditional Market", it's along the alley and whatever you need fresh is all in there. The evening fresh market is located under the train station, not much vendors like in the morning. I like the evening market best, even my relatives who came here for a visit enjoyed buying anything fresh in that evening market.
Aside from the two markets, there are also lots of places to eat if I don't like to cook. Store breakfast are different from afternoon  or evening store and night market. Another way to buy food are from the blue truck vendors. I haven't seen any color but blue, that's why I titled this blog "Blue Trucks in Business".

Here are captured blue trucks:
