Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

This month the 12th sees me in Taiwan, where 2.5 days of work-related meetings came to a conclusion and allowed time for some sightseeing in the city of Kaohsiung. The Taiwanese are very generous and I have had a wonderful time.

I have also eaten way too much. The photos below are of breakfast (the purple play-doh had a fairly non-descript flavour) and of the evening’s dim sum dinner.

The official collection of 12 photos are here, and includes various photos of Kaohsiung and my activities for the day.

  • Oooh, very cool! I had a dream once that I was going to serve another mission and got called to Taiwan, and I was SO excited. It was such a disappointment when I woke up and realized I wasn’t going to Taiwan.

      In actual fact, I thought of you a few times while I was there, and thought it would probably appeal despite the lack of kimchi! Obviously it is not the same as Korea (I didn’t start to teach myself to read* the language, for example), but there are many generic Asian aspects.
      * Well, transliterate
