Tainan, Tawian for Passover (video)

 

UPDATE: From Penghu, we were able to get onto youtube at an internet cafe! I hope you enjoy the video! It is Tuesday April 25 here. We cannot wait to share all our videos and stories with you when we return May 2nd.Sunday:
Due to issues with Taiwanese internet, youtube and the language barrier,  here is the link to the video I want to share. Before we left, it was under a million views but now it is nearing two million views. Enjoy this Passover story by current technology! The fact that I can upload these sentences from the Tainan teachers hostel in Tainan, Taiwan on the internet and you can see it instantly is truly 21st century. We spent the day at the An Ping Fort that was built in the 16th century by the Dutch and spoke with 5th graders who are learning English in their schools here.

Our first week in Taiwan has been full of adventures. We will share all the stories and videos after our return next week. I hope that your Passover celebrations are filled with family, friends and freedom from your personal enslavements.

    "O, Lisa, your emails are just great! So interesting and full of fabulous details. It is a real treat when they arrive — I try envision certain scenes in my mind based on your vivid descriptions. As always, i can't wait to see some of your videos. Not too fond of the idea you got stuck with a bed as soft as a table, but I assume everything is temporary.

    Have fun, stay safe, travel well."
