Taiwan: A paradise found in an ocean, says Georgian medic
"...finished the village parish school, then continued his education at Nersisian Seminary..." (Nersisian seminary was an Armenian higher education institution in the city of Tiflis, now Tbilisi, capital of Georgia, from 1824 to 1924; many Armenian writers had studied at that school), and I imagined the way to Tiflis, with the sack on his shoulder and in moccasins ... I think the intersection of tiredness and absurd thoughts is becoming inevitable, especially when you are the only foreigner on the bus; of course, if Japanese William, who shows you the necessary stop, is left out of account...

Run for the hills
It's a difficult thing, finding your way through a jungle at night. Harder still to distinguish between diverging paths when you have no idea where you're going or how to get there. Surrounded in three dimensions by mud and foliage, there's little hope for those unfamiliar with the terrain. So, it's really no surprise that, on the dark side of a densely forested mountain on the outskirts of Taipei, I wound up hopelessly turned around even as I became further and further separated from my companions.

Loving memories of Taipei
As I walked into the NYC subway, a familiar odor greeted the grimace on my face. It is just another shoot for a student filmmaker. In other words, another day of lugging two suitcases worth of equipment for a 50-minute train ride downtown to a grumpy house owner who for reasons unknown has decided to let us use the location. As I struggle to squeeze past the bulking passengers in their giant winter coats to reach the middle part of the compartment, I can't help but reminisce about the time when I was filming in Taipei.

The one thing I noticed during my short stay in Taiwan was that the students here all shared one common trait: They all wore thick glasses and carried super-heavy school bags wherever they went. This seemed odd to me. After all, didn't parents, teachers, government officials and experts all say that children should enjoy their childhoods and that it's all right for them to be kids?
