The first lady, Chou Mei-Qing, flew to Europe last night.
The fact that only one major media, other than the United Daily News, reported it signifies that the trip is beyond the public reach.
According to the news, she flew to Frankfurt, the traffic and the financial center of Europe, first. Though she was reported to stop by other cities, no further information was leaked.
As the first lady, is Chou doing secret diplomatic mission, such as the talk with Beijing? But that is definitely improper, even against the law. Another scenario might be that she is doing private deals that no public eye should witness.
Europe: the final frontier. This is one of the voyages for Chou in her last days as the first lady.
Despite the cancellation of the well planned visit to Japan last month and the failure to accompany her husband at the inauguration of Panama’s new President this month, which is supposed to be the job of the first lady, Chou continues her private mission: to explore new worlds, to seek out new life and to boldly do what no first lady has done before. revised on 20140716
