This week was “Walk to School Week. The 國語日報 had an article on it:
This is great! The government has decided to declare “Walk to School Week” to draw attention to the benefits of walking to school. Top officials are even standing at the gates of schools to give the kids who walk stickers to put in their “Walk to School Passports”. So what’s the response? Numerous parents who normally drive their kids to school are dropping them off a ways away from school and letting them walk the rest of the way. While I doubt this program will have much success, I’m all for seeing exercise and environmentalism promoted.
I’ll add pinyin popups and translations soon.
