Dear Instructor Ingrid:

Bonne nuit! Vous êtes américain ou français? Je ne sais pas, mais je suis taïwanais! Nous ne sommes pas chinois mais nous vivons en Chine et sur la petite île de lune incurvée au-dessous du Japon! J'espère visiter Taiwan quand il y a des vacances! N'oubliez pas de prendre l'avion pour vous rendre en Chine continentale, sinon vous devrez nager jusqu'à Hong Kong pour vous rendre sur l'île de Taiwan! En outre, j'espère que j'aime les fruits et les collations taïwanais pour que vos vacances en Asie soient inoubliables!

With love and peace,

From Andy S. C. Yu 2019.05.30
