You can frequently figure a journalist to be nosey, and to have some  
good info and connections. The one I mentioned a couple of weeks ago  
is also a real swell guy, lives there, and speaks your language.
His name is Gabor,   teveli_net-AT-yahoo.com

The website that shows his pics of the Yunlin Puppet Festival is:

Andrew Kim is an inspiring puppet artist, and has been involved in  
art-activism in Taiwan. You might get some leads from him. Check him

should be off to a good start.
Happy landings.
