Hello Renay –

I’m pea green with envy! Your trip sounds and looks fantastic. I taught in Taipei some years ago at Dance Forum Taipei. I wonder if you will meet any of those dancers. Sunny Pang was the director then. You may also find a number of U of I alums. What a great way to start your life after graduate school. Enjoy every moment.

Your trip looks to be exciting, interesting, fulfilling, and fun! Make the most of it; you only get so many opportunites like this. We are all quite envious, as we love to travel and experience new things.

Please keep us updated with your travels and experiences. Molly and I are looking foward to lots of travelling, (we are recently freed from parental responsibilities as Haley is going off to college); we have trips planned to Paris, Moldova, Australia, and Belize.

Good luck,

Love Tracey, Molly, Jesse, Haley
