Yes. A bit odd. Why should you have been born a Taiwanese? Because you like Chinese food or oriental women?
Being born in Taiwan 57 years ago in 1946 or so would mean growing up in a very, very poor country just coming out of over 50 years of Japanese colonialism and going into some really tough times under the KMT. It wasn’t unitl the 1980’s that Taiwan’s economy took off. You were very lucky to born in the US just after WWII and to have a chance to be part of the boom years. If you didn’t make it then in those conditions you would have face real difficulty making it in Taiwan during the same time period.
So Rochester, New York may not win any awards for being the friendliness capital of the USA but why not just move to a friendlier place in the US? Try the midwest, the south, out west even. Hawaii is real friendly.
Why Asia? Are you a Vietnam era vet looking to come back to Asia? How about other places in Asia? Why Taiwan? What cultural and societal environment is it that you crave? Have you ever visited Taiwan?
Do you have retirement benefits and income from a previous career? If so, the income could help you if you really decide to move here. You can always teach English - you are not too old for that - but the income is not enough to build a big retirement nest egg.
I suggest you come here for a few months just to study Mandarin, look around and get a feel for this place before you make any big decisions .Taiwan may not be the fantasy island you are dreaming about. You will face tons of new frustrations and hassles here.
