The East Gate of the city of Hsinchu in Taiwan is one of its prominent landmarks – and it looks beautiful at night!

For some reason I skipped Hsinchu in last week’s “The Places I Called Home” post…so here it is. It’s amazing to think back and realized that I worked at the Industrial Technology Research Institute under the NanoTechnology Research Centre during one of my coop terms. More amazing is the thought that this all happened 7 years ago. And I’m STILL doing nano research today. Maybe that’s the most amazing of it all.

I spent a winter term in Taiwan, which meant that Chinese new year that year was spent in Hsinchu. I think it was the only time I spent Chinese new year in Asia since I immigrated to Canada…wow! Here a feast was undergoing preparation, and it was going to be a huge one!
