You may have heard about the recent plane crash in Taiwan? As it turns out, this just happened four weeks after we returned to Taiwan. When we were here last year, an airplane of the same company crashed, also four weeks after we arrived.

It all sounds very strange, but is of course just a coincidence. But Taiwan and it’s people are by their nature very superstitious, so coincidences like this very quickly do make people believe in supernatural connections. In spite of this, we should try to remember that riding a scooter in this country is still a far greater risk for our lives than riding a TransAsia airplane.

Fly safe, everyone. Our thoughts are with the victims of the tragedy. Thank you to all the rescue forces who saved lives in the cold river.
