Taiwan Tourist, Peter Arnett, 1969

We may have kept this article as proof to family and friends that Taiwan was being discovered as an emerging tourist destination.  

 Particularly, we must have sent this article first to our parents to assure them that we were not fending for ourselves in the middle of a jungle. 

Peter Arnett was working for the Associated Press during the Vietnam War and, for some reason, wrote this Pacific Stars and Stripes review of the emerging Taiwan. 

He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1966 for International Reporting. 

Mr. Arnett, as he appears today, was most widely viewed when he was a correspondent for CNN.  Today he teaches in China (PRC).
