I've been doing a bit of thinking. And, I came to the conclusion that there are certain things that made Taiwan great. While, a lot of things probably contributed to their rapid rise and development and their global reputation for being a reliable country when it comes to technology, I don't think it's just a simple set of characteristics. It's the cumulative mindsets of the Taiwanese people, I suppose.
I arrived in Taiwan two days ago, on the morning of the seventeenth. It is my first time to travel alone in another country, and it is certainly quite interesting to experience. The first remarkable thing I noticed was that Taiwan is very clean and organised. The streets barely had any litter, and it was a wonderful change from what I knew to be walking on the sidewalk. In my homeland, walking on the sidewalk exposes you to a high risk of developing lung cancer. Here in Taiwan, it is such a wonderful thing to do.
I had the pleasure of being put up in this wonderful hotel, the Monarch Plaza in Taoyuan. And the wonderfully pleasant and conversational Lora (I realised I have no idea how to spell her name) showed me to my room on the fourteenth floor.
