Since the MAKING HISTORY crowdfunding campaign has ended, I have had quite a few people have ask if I have sorted out my accommodations in Taipei. I have been given a few recommendations on affordable places to stay. And someone who I've been corresponding with but have never met, actually tried to find me a place to stay by reaching out to several of her relatives in Taiwan. Just a few days ago I was contacted by someone who heard about my Making History Victory party. He told me that he had a relative in Taipei who wanted to offer to put me up. I soon found out from one of my friends on Facebook that it was his mother who was offering me a place to stay. What a small world it is when it comes to the Taiwanese community- it's only one or two degrees of separation!
I am so touched by the continued outpouring of support for my project to document the life of Su Beng.
Last week one of my uncles offered to let me to stay at his apartment in Taipei. So now I won't have to worry about my accommodations. Rent would have taken a significant chunk out of the funds that I've raised, so this will be a huge help. Things are really starting to come together!
