Arrival in Taiwan!
Actually, I arrived last Saturday but jetlag and work have conspired to keep me from posting. I feel much better now and am starting to acclimate to my new surroundings. My first observation is how hospitable my hosts have been. Not only did they put me up in a great hotel and provide me with a rental car, but they also have done everything they can to explain the culture to me. I will provide more information on this (and pictures) later today but the maid is knocking now!
