My grandma has been staying with us this week, entertaining my two youngest kids and talking to me about vacations from decades ago.
She sent this postcard to her two youngest children 45 years ago when she and my grandfather visited Taiwan. In the postcard, she wrote:
We have spent 2 very interesting days here in Taipei. It is the capital of Taiwan. We took trips yesterday + saw tea, rice, bananas growing. Formosa means pretty land + it is just that. We are at airport now to leave for Hong Kong. Love, Mother and Dad.
This trip to Hong Kong was their first and boy do I wish I could find postcards from that visit, their first of eight.
