Taiwan will always occupy a special place in my heart. Its majestic monuments; its amazing balance of tradition and modernization; its green, lush forests and ever-clean environment; its friendly and helpful people.

I wish he’d forever stay the same fun-loving, mischievous tyke with nary a care in the world.
