These past few days have brought rare and welcomed rain to Pingtung and because of the rain, the air was particularly clear.  Looking out my bedroom window, I was given a rare view of the mountains that surround the city.  I could see my school situated on the eastern boundary of the city.  Plush palm trees line the river behind the school, filling the land to the mountains.  This was such a nice present for my last day in the apartment!

So, now I’m in Kaohsiung, where I’ll be until I fly to Changsha.  I look forward to meeting the high school students with whom I’ll be working, seeing the differences in Chinese culture on the mainland and on this island and preparing these students for an opportunity of a lifetime.  I know how much this year has changed me, imagine what it will do for these teenagers! 


Today was the last day ‘the girls’ got together on the Asian side of the big pond!  Well meet again on the other side!! It’s only fitting that our outings ending in the same place they started:  The Dream Mall in Kaohsiung!

I got my going home date and I’m making my plans! It will be soooooooooo wonderful to be back in my little Honda Civic, not having to walk, walk, walk, walk, walk!!!! There is a new method of transport in Kauhsoing as the MRT has finally opened, but readers know I haven’t made it there in ages! Rides are free for the first month and pricing after that has not yet been determined.

119 days left and miles to go before I sleep!

In August, 2007 I will be leaving Indianapolis with my daughter, Kristen, to live and work in the Republic of China (Taiwan). This will be my fiftieth year on this planet and my first year living in another country. This blog will let you join us on the adventure!
