Gay Travel: Taiwan's Tasty Charms
We once had an elderly friend who made the first of his many visits to China way back in 1939 - and who routinely, repeatedly, shared with us that "once you see China, once you have visited the culture, your perspective on life on this planet will be forever altered." Mark my words, ducky. Or as the ancient Chinese proverb has it, "Don't listen to what they say. Go see."

Seeing is believing, as the Portuguese explorers determined in 1544 - and their first sighting of Taiwan caused them to re-christen the island "Formosa" for "beautiful island."
