I'm at a meeting in Taipei this week and arrived to find that a number of attendees were turned away at their airports for lack of visas. When they finally arrived and shared their stories, I feel incredibly fortunate that I did not need one myself (the fire drill over the about-to-expire passport was quite enough). I hope your colleague appreciates the efforts you made!


Oh Marsha, I hope you got a wardrobe sorted for this trip. Sorry my email was so hasty. Taipei is probably steamy right now. Hope all is going well and how exciting to have you (nearly) in my timezone.


Oh, I did, yes, thank you! Your note helped immensely on setting me on the right course and I ended up doing a kind of quasi-Eileen Fischer approach. Taipei was actually just a bit cooler than home (!) so a lot of my usual stuff sufficed in slightly different organizations. Next up might be Amsterdam, pending travel budget approval, which will require a whole different packing scenario I think.


Marsha - Amsterdam! exciting. Rijksmuseum amazing. I went in winter and bought amazing indigo suede gloves which I still love. I reckon if you are going in summer, much the same wardrobe will suffice. I am off to Beijing tomorrow and will compare notes.
