Dec. 5th--- Welcome a commentator from Taiwan.
Welcome Mr. /Ms. Grant who is a newcome commentator from Taiwan. A few days ago, I read a comment posted by Grant from Taiwan, that is an exciting thing to me. There are many readers from Taiwan but hardly finding a commentator. And Grant said that s/he also seldom takes a nap at noon.
Speaking of taking a nap at noon, Toni, a commentator from Barcelona Spain said:” here in Spain me make "siesta". I didn't know that it was usual in Asia. Here is more a topic than a reality. Anyway, I make everyday 20 minutes into my car. Sometimes I think that somebody could think that I'm dead or similar, but it doesn't matter me. I feel Ok, and after my performaces are better” .
Very good, Toni, I have learnt a new word “SIESTA” from you, thank you. A siesta means a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after lunch, the word “siesta” is Spanish which is from the Latin hora sexta. I am very happy to learn a new word. And, I wonder how British say it?.
This early morning, I attended a funeral. For all I know, in Taiwan, the average period from people died to bury will be in 45 days; I heard there is a custom that a funeral should be held in 24 hours, it's quite different though.
By the way, I found the word “bury” mean something else which is:” Bury is a town in Greater Manchester, England “
Here is a photo of a funeral today in Taiwan.
Best wishes, and may you heath and safety.
