Last night, an earthquake occurred in Hualien. Lots of tourists China have been buried. Today is the day when the earthquake hit the Tainan two years ago. The night that the earthquake has shaken the whole land is not easily forgotten. Mother, do you remember the earthquake in Nantou? I might be in your womb then. I hope buried people would rescue safely. Last fall, I have met a man from South Korea. He has come to Tainan to attend the film festival. After he left, I received a letter. He asked me visiting Kinmen with him, in September.
