Oh it's so great to meet a fellow Taiwanese on Gaia! emotion_c8
Most of my family also lives in Taiwan. Some in Taipei, Taichung and Taitung. I (and my parents and my sister) used to live in Xindian, Taipei before we moved to South Africa 10 years ago. Now we live with my aunt and uncle.
South Africa's not a bad place to live in, if you ignore the fact that crime is very bad here...which you can't...on a positive note the country is extremely diverse in culture. Like, 11 official languages...but thankfully we only have to learn 2 at school smile The weather here is moderate, hardly any natural disasters or anything but the wind blows 24/7 in Port Elizabeth aka The Windy City, which is where I live.
And um, wild animals like lions and elephants don't roam around in our streets, they are either kept in zoos or in game reserves. (sorry, I had to mention that, because I get that a lot - I think it's just a stereotype people have on African countries though sweatdrop)
South Africa is not entirely poverty-stricken either, there are cities such as Cape Town and Johannesburg that are as cosmopolitan and fashionable as any big American cities!
And you? Were you born in the US? Or did you move there? And can you communicate in Chinese?
