Typhoon Morakot

Exactly one week ago, I and many city residents ducked into the malls and movie theaters amid pouring rain brought on by Typhoon Morakot. Little did we know that the typhoon would leave a trail full of so much damage and casualty when it passed. The toll is Taiwan's heaviest in more than 50 years. Most of the damage was located in more remote, mountainous regions. Officals have put the toatl number of casualty at 500, with 120 confirmed death and 380 feared lost in mudslides. My prayers to all the families affected.

That is so sad I send my love and hope to everyone in Taiwan! Makes me wonder if the two exchange students that we had stay with us when I was little are doing well sadly we lost touch along time ago. I love your outfit it is very beautiful in its simplicity. The shoes are very cute!
