I just got back from Taiwan. All in all it was a very memorable trip - highlighted by meeting David Wu who is my brother-in-law's good friend. David and my brother-in-law also work together at Talkdatalk.com which aims at teaching English (and it's slang) to the Chinese masses. David was a very down-to-earth guy and was gracious enough to pose with my little boy.
I also had the chance to meet Edgar Lin who runs one of the best Taiwanese baseball websites (in Chinese though) around - PLAYBALL BASEBALL - the Soul of Baseball. If you can read Chinese, I'm sure you've probably visited his site already.
Although I didn't have much time to do any baseball related sightseeing, I did notice that Chien-Ming Wang's image is plastered all over the island - ranging from McDonald's to local banks, and other advertising outlets.
He's also on the news 24-7. In addition, there are no less than 2 books already out on Wang:
Once I get over this jet lag, I'll get back to the daily recaps and news.
