Slug: Talbott’s New Year Holidays
The Honduran ambassador, Marlene Villela-Talbott, appreciates the different cultures she encounters in the line of her duties. She told FTV’s Michella Weng about memorable Lunar New Year Holidays she has had.##

This Lunar New Year Holiday, Ambassador Talbott won’t get to do much because she is writing her master’s thesis on Taiwan studies, but she did have some interesting experiences -- in temples.
It was an amazing experience to see how it's celebrated at midnight, and to have the opportunity to share the food and to share the joys of the occasion. Even though I don't speak Mandarin and people didn't speak English or Spanish, people were very warm, very welcome, and I had a lot of fun.
看大家半夜在那邊 然後我們一起吃東西 一起慶祝 真的是個特別的經驗
Possibly at the end of her term in Taiwan, Talbott does seem to have collected enough memories and furniture for her to remember Taiwan and the Taiwanese well.
