Chinese Students Conduct Ethnographic Bike Trip of Taiwan

A group of fifteen Chinese students from Beijing University just embarked on an exciting tour of Taiwan, where they will seek to learn more about this exotic and alien world. They will learn about strange Taiwanese customs, see Taiwanese culture in its native environment, and participate in some of the strange coming of age rituals:
"I've heard that in Taiwan you have to complete a 1,000 km cycling route as part of a coming-of-age ritual at 20, " he said. "Although the route on this tour is less than that, I will make up for it on my next trip to Taiwan."
This trip should provide the departments of the social sciences at Beijing University with a huge codex of ethnographic material on this mysterious island and its strange, exotic people.
