Happy Double Tenth Day

Happy double tenth day, national day of Taiwan, Republic of China. Double tenth day comemorates the Wuchang Uprising of October 10, 1911 which started the Xinhai Revolution which ended the Qing Dynasty and led to the founding of the Republic of China.

Taiwan's city hall is in the shape of this Double Tenth symbol, which is essentially two Chinese ten characters joined together.

Unfortunately, I won't be participating in any Double Tenth celbebrations as I'm off to Shanghai today.
