Back in 2004 Elton John called a group of Taiwanese reporters waiting at Taipei airport "Rude vile pigs,...Do you know what that means? Rude vile pigs. That's what all of you are." Personally I find Taiwanese rather polite and unlike Elton John, Taiwan is one of my favorite places to visit and play. This Island nation is just slightly bigger than Lake Ontario yet is one of the most important technology and manufactering hubs in the world. Warm friendly people are everywhere and there is evidence of the old country style Taiwanese and the urban modern Asia in every town. Here is a video of the newsfeed .
