So, about 6 weeks from the posting of this picture, my class at Well-Tech, a furniture import-export company, ended. It was one of my very first classes, teaching 7 giggly and perpetually late office ladies every Saturday morning. Well, six months later we were down to three students, the others having been fired, and so the class came to an end. Although I didn’t like getting up and journeying an hour on Saturday morning to get there, I did enjoy chatting with the girls and will miss them. For our last class Joan (pronounced Joanne, pictured here) and Ivy (next pic) took me on my first motocycle ride to a riverside resort area called Bi-Tan in Southern Taipei.
