About the Author

I was 27 the last time I edited this paragraph, and have been living and teaching English in Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan (which may or may not be part of China, depending on who you ask, but is definitely not in Thailand) since November of 2004.  This blog talks about random aspects of my life in Taiwan.  This blog began life as a mass e-mail, which in turn was started to make it easier for me to keep in touch with my friends and family back home.  However, the e-mail distribution list keeps expanding, which could result in the eventual collapse of the internet and civilization as we know it (or at least my e-mail account, anyway).  To prevent this, all the past e-mails have been posted to this site, and all future entries will only be posted to this site, except for those people who want it posted to their e-mail.

I hope you like it.

    I love the title of your blog. I got tired of correcting people so I’m sure some of them still think I’m sitting on a beach somewhere lucky to have survived the Tsunami.

    found your blog by chance, and love the title of your blog very much. It’s interesting to watch how you feel or what you describe Taiwan in your way. Sometimes we local people can find more fun by your articles. Please keep doing.

    Hi ben…Been reading a few of your blog entries and I find them pretty fun, and it’s great to see a foreigner staying here for the long term in Taiwan. Anyways, I am in the beginning stages of putting together an expat magazine and I was wondering if you would be interested in writing for it.

    Look forward to hearing from you
