Johan Wilhelm (Hans) v.Netherlands
Christine, thank you very much for the trip I spend with You and your husband, Jan. I learnt a lot about Taiwan and its history, especially the Dutch connection. The Chinese New Year was favorable to my trip and your directions helped me make the most of it. And due to your pleasant company and all the good fortune bestowed upon me by your new president to be (or not) I will return to Taiwan for a longer visit. It proved to be too short. Have a happy 2014.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It isn't every day we trace Dutch roots in Taiwan and see politics so up close ! Thanks for all of us enjoying the mild and sunny winter weather you brought with you - as the Dutch would say; in the Year of the Horse. The elections for Taipei mayor are in November 2014, for president in 2016. Both a nice time of the year and interesting period to see the island.
