What I Did on my Holidays

The incomparable Robert Johanson has created a blog of our DWEN AN WINTER ENGLISH CAMP at Dong Hwa University in Hualien. Forty of the very best high school students on the island gathered for five days of intensive English instruction and practice. The photos include a day at an aboriginal village in the East Rift Valley, and a day at Taroko Gorge. The Dun An Foundation is personally financed by Taipei Mayor Ma Ying Jeou as a service organization for youth. Activity organizer Steven Chen told the students they didn't have to become politicians to be "players", but he hoped they would become opinion leaders for their generation. Truly a pleasure to teach these guys!
