Ames – 2006-08-23 11:46 AM Come on, I didn’t sleep through that many geography classes! I know exactly where Taiwan is, and I also know that Formosa is what the Portuguese people called Taiwan when they first landed there. Interestingly enough, at least to me, is that the Portuguese also named an island where my mother’s family is from. Fogo Island. Heard of it? 😉

Yes, you are right here about Taiwan.  I believe you did listened very hard in your geography classes. 🙂

Well, I guess I‘m the one who sleeps through her geography classes then, because I’m really sorry to say this, but I haven’t heard of Fogo Island.  They only teach a very general idea of the American geography here in Taiwan.  But hey!  I already learned a lot of interesting stuff here!!!  😉
