Final Days

Well, today is my last Sunday in Taiwan.  I will spend it reflecting and walking around the riverside and Shilin Night Market. It was supposed to rain today, but so far it has been beautiful and hot. I have enjoyed my time here in Taiwan and have learned a lot about their culture.  They have many similarities to America, but have just as many differences.  I think that I have served a positive purpose during my visit.  The people that I have encountered have learned more about the black culture compared to what they see on TV.  Although I still get stared at because of my skin color, I have noticed that they have gotten used to me and begin to speak.  It's amazing how a simple smile or nod of the head can change a person's attitude towards you.  I will miss being here and being able to walk around carefree and safe.  I pray that my suggestions and lessons have helped people grow personally and professionally.  I have developed even more patience as well as the ability to not look at things at face value.  I questioned the things that I didn't understand and their explanations made perfect sense. So before you judge, dig a little deeper into the real meaning behind something.  I have 2 days to go in my count down.  Those 2 days include summer camp and a BBQ. Enjoy the videos!

    educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
