W: I think I am not getting used to the life in Taiwan. It’s been six months since I left U.S. and I still can’t understand…
M: What don’t you understand? Tell me.
W: I don’t understand why people in Taiwan tend to have a nap after lunch. To me, I think it is best that we start working after lunch and complete our job earlier, so that we can go home earlier, you know. We don’t have a sleeping time during working hours in the States, you know. I think having a naptime is a waste of time.
M: Well, it is a phenomenon commonly seen in Taiwan. Many Taiwanese people believe they can work and concentrate better after a short nap.
