The Taiwan Flag


Introduction

B.O: The country I choose for the Wiki project is Taiwan. I chose this place because my mother was born there. Things I knew about Taiwan before I started my research was that there is a very tall building with 101 floors. There are also many motorcycles because it is very crowded since Taiwan is a small island. There are manga shops as well that when you pay you can stay and read or take it home. There was also McDonalds there like in almost everywhere. One thing I liked about the food was that there were noodles. The noodles had many flavors like spicy, chicken, vegetarian, and beef. There were many more but that was all I ate. I liked the beef flavor best. Also, there are many shops in the streets of Taiwan that are open all day long. Every New Years people will make fireworks blow out of Taipei 101, which is the name of the tall building.

G.W: The country I chose was Taiwan because my whole family was born there except for me. Things I know about Taiwan right now is that there is a tower that has 101 floors and they also have a bullet train that goes from north to south Taiwan. There is a lot of transportation but there are a lot of people who ride scooters that use gas. There are amazing fireworks that shoot out of the 101 floor building every New Years. They also have access to the Pacific Ocean.
