我搭飛機到臺灣來的經驗 ~ My Flight to Taipei

我9月3日參加了我最好的朋友的婚禮。隔兩天離開了美國。準備的時間太短了,幸好還記得重要的行李。

我爸爸開車送我到印第安纳波利斯飛機場。我從印第安纳波利斯飛到芝加哥去要一個小時。兩個小時以後換飛機。從芝加哥飛到東京去要十二個小時。三個小時以後換飛機。從東京飛到桃園飛機場來要三個小時。

我在飛機裏沒辦法睡覺,所以就看書或是和別人聊天。往東京的飛機裏,我坐在日本人的旁邊。她是空中小姐,跟美國人結婚,他們住在紐約。因爲往飛機需要飛十二個小時,我們説話的時間很長,所以我練習了很多日語。往桃園的飛機裏,我坐在住在香港的臺灣女人旁邊。她很親切,而且英文說得很流利。

我經過遷居移民的檢查。然後提了我的行李。我的行李是最後送到的,真是麻煩。然後我搭客運到忠孝復興捷運站。在客運裏我遇到了一位年輕的朋友。他從紐約的法輪大法國際會就回來。他是一個很好的人,說話和做事都很謹慎。他告訴我大學的時候喝得多,吃到不好的東西,睡覺睡得不好,過得不開心。開始學法輪大法,生活完全改變了。跟他説話很有意思。

我9月5日早上從家離開,9月6日的半夜才到宿舍來。當時認識的宿舍服務員現在是我的好朋友。臺灣的時間比印第安纳的時間快十二個小時,所以,我活動了二十四個小時以上了。我覺得很累。經過太平洋得花很多時間,可是卻可以非常有意思。

On September 3rd, I took part in my best friend’s wedding. Two days later, I left America. My preparation time was very short; fortunately, I remembered to pack all the important things.

My father drove me to the Indianapolis airport. The flight from there to Chicago took one hour. Two hours later, I changed planes. The flight from Chicago took twelve hours. Three hours later, I changed planes. The flight from Tokyo to Taipei took three hours.

I can’t sleep inside planes, so I read books or chat. On my plane from Tokyo, I sat next to a Japanese person. She is a flight attendant who married an American, and they live in New York. Because the flight took twelve hours, we talked for a long time, and I got to practice Japanese a lot. On my flight to Taipei, I sat next to a Taiwanese woman who lives in Hong Kong. She was very nice, and she also spoke English well.

I passed through security and customs, then got my luggage. My luggage was the last to arrive, which was a hassle. After that, I took a bus to Zhongxiao Fuxing Station. On that bus, I made a new young friend. He was returning from an international Falun Gong Conference in New York. He was a great guy who spoke and acted prudently. He told me that in college he drank too much, ate bad food, and didn’t sleep well, so he was very unhappy. After he started studying Falun Gong, his life completely changed. It was very interesting to talk to him.

I left home on the morning of September 5th and arrived at my dorm at midnight on September 6th. The dormitory staff person I met then is my good friends now. Taiwan is 12 hours ahead of Indiana, so I was in motion for over 24 hours. I was really tired. Crossing the Pacific Ocean takes a lot of time, but it can be really interesting.
