Linda and I had a nice time with him, walking around Tunghai's campus and chatting about what has changed and what hasn't since he taught here.

|Looking for Tom's old room in the men's dorm|
|The shower room had changed somewhat; most noticeably, a natural gas fueled water heater has replaced the one Tom remembered (for the old heater, he recalled, you literally had to gather sticks and light a fire to heat the water)*|

*David Decker, who was acting chair of the Foreign Languages Department in 1980, told us about how he informed incoming teachers of the need to gather sticks to heat their water and (exaggerating a bit) that the Department would equip each teacher with a bow and arrow so that they could hunt for their food.
