My trip to Taiwan & My friend Colin
I went to Taipei and met up with my Japanese friend. Her father was a "big wig," with Sony in Taiwan and my friend, her mother and their driver took me all over Taipei. I was only there for two days but I saw a lot! It is an amazing, and vibrant city.
I ate at a very interesting Chinese restaurant. Loved the food! It is a city that never sleeps! I felt very safe there, and I have heard from friends that Taiwan is a great country to teach English in.
My friend Colin studied Chinese, taught English and somehow ended up on Taiwan national television playing guitar and singing. Colin I love ya! But how did you ever get on TV playing guitar and singing?! Colin became an overnight celebrity with marriage proposals from all over Taiwan. Heeventually went on to China for more study.
