Greetings from Tawian

 Asia By Bennyb
April 30th 2007Hey Hows it going ? well this is our first port in taiwan. After being in the philippines for 3 months is has been quite the change. We are no longer in a county that speaks english too much. So I have had to get use to translation again. Ah well.... It also has been a change because tawian is not really a poor country so it has been a little but diffrent for me. Anywho I hope you like the pics
