TAIPEI – I spent two weeks in Taipei and Hsinchu largely on the dime of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council getting reacquainted with a country I had not visited in a decade.
First impressions: The heat and humidity clutches you the instant you step off the plane.
The chaos and pace of life in a town flooded with scooters soon makes your head swim.
And it doesn't take long before you are charmed by genuinely friendly, gentle people who work hard and take pride in what they do, the teams they are part of and their island home.
So, without further introduction, come follow me on my two-week trek.
