Would you like a chocolate and a SARS mask on your pillow? - Avoid whole of Taiwan: WHO
"GENEVA - The World Health Organisation (WHO) has extended its travel advisory for Taipei to include the whole of Taiwan as the Sars crisis escalates in the island's south...."

Just when you thought things couldn't get worse... I shudder to think of the further negative impact this latest piece of news will have on Taiwan's economy. The island, which has been struggling to promote itself as a destination for trade shows, conventions, and summits in the East-Asian region will surely suffer even greater set-backs as the cancellations and postponements of events continue to flood in... At least now Taiwanese students can seek refuge in the summer ESL classes at the University of California at Berkeley... Stay tuned.
