Much love to you all.

Congrats, Mr T.

It's best not to think about how many posts per day that figure implies :)

Congrats Michael. We need to find some time to celebrate over a beer or beers.

Fantastic work Michael. Your Blog is daily reading for me. It is truly inspiring and I don't know if people truly realise the amount of work which goes into it.
I get great pleasure of looking at your excellent photos, many of which could illustrate a definitive essay on modern Taiwan.
( I wish that you could write a little more about the photos, but time eh!)
Well done comrade!

Thanks, everyone! It's been a great trip, and I am looking forward to reaching 5,000 posts....sometime next week, at the current rate. :)

Keep up the good work Michael.

It takes a lot of dedication while still keeping all the other balls of work, studies etc. in the air.

I still think you have a cloned double somewhere.

Well done on reaching post 2000! I wouldn't be having the time of my life here in Taiwan, if not for your sterling efforts in promoting the country and discussing Taiwanese issues.

Good luck en route towards your next landmark post.

Hey Michael Congrats on 2000 - I could never do that. By the way you said when I get a blog set up, to let you know about it - well here is the link

My first topic is Ben Goren's hillarious letter to my government.
