1990 – Amigo Hostel. John was best friends with visiting foreigners and often had hostel parties for us. The manager was me (Lee). The top floor was Sunshine English School started by Athena and Mike and most of us in the hostel taught English there. In the Vintage Gallery is one picture of Chloe Chen, Sunshine English student, on the roof. I have a bunch more pics from this era but finding them will take time so check back. I don’t think times like these could ever happen again but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try! HISTORY – John  opened the first hostel in 1984, Formosa Hostel, then Amigo Hostel, then Happy Family Hostel. Robert Story the author for Lonely Planet Taiwan was my source and tens of thousands of other foreigners’ source to meet John Lee and Taiwan. Live Life LOUD – signed, Best  American Friend of Taiwan. PS. If you were a guest and have pictures from the 90s, please contact me and let’s post them here!!!
