Pure Yoga is a yoga studio chain located throughout Taiwan, and while staying in Taichung, a city in western Taiwan, some of my fellow performers took dance and aerobic classes there on our days off.  On the Fourth of July I woke early hoping to catch one of the classes but was disappointed when the studio appeared closed after 9 a.m.  I decided to go for a run instead despite the intense heat and humidity, and ran towards the large science center not far from our hotel.

About Me


Megan After a while of traveling in foreign countries, you begin to realize that it's not just your luggage that can get lost. When you don't speak the language, you loose your ability to speak. If you can't decipher the written word, you loose your ability to read. And if you can't read the signs to know where you're going, you yourself can get lost.

Hopefully, my blunders will assure others that they are not the only ones lost in translation.
