The adventurous Taiwanese

  Four hundred years ago, mainlanders crossed the sea to immigrate to Taiwan, most from Fukien. Later in Ming Dynasty, Cheng Chen-kung brought people from central China to Taiwan, which marked the high tide of immigration. Gradually new immigrants mixed with the earlier immigrants and developed unique, adventurous, tolerant Taiwanese characteristics. It is also very interesting how one can see a variety of customs and hear various dialects on the small island.  Although the February 28 Incident caused Taiwanese to discriminate against the later comers, but as time goes by, both sides learn to live in peace and content together.
