Here is the first video from the Taiwan series. As I stated I'll continue with more and more business/financial/investment look into some well known and less known but still strong and noteworthy Taiwan companies. I have spent almost 34 years here in Taiwan so I have seen some amazing changes both politically:the birth of local democracy, culturally, economically,etc. I studied Chinese language, history and culture at the University of Arizona.
This is the link to IShares EWTETF which I will be going through primarily as a lens into the heart of Taiwan's major public companies. It is something I invest in personally but I am not affiliated in any way with IShares or it's parent: Blackrock. Here is the wiki page link I used in the video which gives some good recent historical background on Taiwan Island, the ROC, etc.
This was taken a couple of years back in Lukang, Taiwan. One of my favorite cultural spots in Taiwan and consequently a place I like to visit repeatedly. This is inside the Long Shan Temple which is a great location to shoot due to it's distinctive architecture, scale of the place and the lighting it offers at different times of the year and day. Not long ago I shared a thought that occurred to me with a visitor that I also brought here: "there's something about places that experience a lot of human traffic or interaction. They seem to store and reflect the energy of the people that have contacted it stayed or moved through there." This if course is something very subtle not overt. Lukang has many places like this and Long Shan Temple in particular.
