In Taiwan, instead of having a cup of coffee, drinking soy milk is the way most people start the day. Breakfast shops serve the milk fresh and hot, and simply flavor it with some sugar.

Jake visited me to study in June 2008. He is responsible for very important safety work on Taiwan's 'bullet train', the High Speed Railway (HSR). Most people's trip on the 300 km/h High Speed Rail takes less than 90 minutes. But for Jake, the journey took weeks. He traveled by foot.
Peter and Karen from Washington D.C. came to my class in November 2008. Most of my guests come to Taipei for business trips. But Peter and Karen visited Taipei simply because they wanted to experience the food.
