WORLD TRADE CNETER, NY CITY

Tomorrow will be the 6th anniversary of 911. Luckily I had a chance to see the World Trade Center when it was still there. In December, 1992, that was my first winter break in US. I went to New York City to visit my cousin and had a chance to take a good look at this big city for a month. NY city is quite an amazing city; you can see the best and the worst of US there. I did enjoy visiting museums, watching my first Broadway show and experiencing this melting pot of different cultures. But I did not like the terrible traffic and the unsafe feeling.

I visited World Trade Center and enjoyed the view from its observation deck, but I have never thought it collapsed in 2001 by a terrorist attack. I though it was a movie trailer when I first saw it on TV, and later I realized it was REAL! I really felt sorry for those victims and their families.

Tomorrow will be another 911, and I will take a flight to Japan. One of my colleagues asked me if I really want to do so? Well, I have to, it is a business trip, and I am not afraid at all.

我想賓拉登對飛日本的台灣長X也沒太大興趣,更別提不用攻擊就會自爆的華X了。

除了空中遇到一點亂流,平安到達東京,平靜渡過911

911過了,現在印尼又有大地震.....
看來亞洲地殼下面有古怪,
雖然日本也在地震帶,
不過把台灣日本這兩個地震好發國擺在一起相比,
很顯然的,
在東京的你,
存活率比我高很多.....
