Does this mask match my shoes?

One of the first things I noticed about all the scooter drivers in Taiwan was all the masks they wear.  This is to help prevent breathing in the fumes and pollution in the air.  Now, who knows if that actually works at all, but there are a few other benefits to wearing a mask.  #1 - they keep your face warm when you drive in the cold and  #2 - yet another chance to accessorize your outfit. 

Add sunglasses and my face disappears!

  1. They totally do keep you warm. As far as being practical for breathing, they at least keep you from breathing in little particles (or bugs). :) I still have my Taiwan mask.
