I am now in China, the Republic of China, specifically. The island nation of Taiwan has long been one of those legendary places, like New Zealand or Finland, that has become a fictional haven in my mind. Incredibly liberal, world-class social rights, high availability of vegan food, and good nature. Plus, I took Mandarin language classes with the intention of one day coming here, so it has that personal desire too. It is quite nice to say, after the surprise that was Japan, that Taiwan has so far fulfilled every expectation.
