"Where are you from?" she asked.


"Why are you in Taiwan?" I'd never really thought about it so I told her that I'd been to Japan and Korea and that the island was on the way to Hong Kong.

"Then you go back to England?"

England was just a memory. I told her that I hoped to travel on the trains in China.

"China!" She put her hand to her mouth and returned to her friends, laughing at the absurdity.
