30. Yang Chen ahma

Monday August 4, 2008

Huiling Wu, Associate Supervisor at the Taipei Women's Rescue Foundation, took me to visit Yang Chen Taiwanese ahma's home in Taipei. The *ahma spoke Japanese as well as Taiwanese, and had a very gentle manner.

* "halmunis" in Korean, or "ahmas" in Taiwanese means "grandmas". (In Asia, elders are commonly referred to as grandmother or grandfather, whether you are related to them or not, as a way of showing respect.)
