Great for new comers!

My girlfriend is Taiwanese and this June we are heading out to Taichung for a month. I asked her to find some educational material for me about Taiwan and how it's like there. She came across WuiT and we both love it! I myself am from Poland but I've been living in the US for over 14 years now. This show will introduce me to my future second home! Keep up the great work! *****

Cool Expat Interviews- Great Job

I really like these interviews- it sort of helps me stay connected to the expat experiences I had in Taipei from 1990 to 1993- but now I get to have fun at South Texas College, which is also good. Their is such a great entreprenuerial vitality to Taiwan.
