Taipei, Feb. 21 (CNA) A Finnish man has been placed by police in a shelter in
Taipei’s Wenshan District after he was found sleeping at a bus station in Neihu.

The man told police that he arrived in Taiwan for tourism on Jan. 26 and was scheduled to fly back to Finland on March. 30. But he said he had used up his money and was wandering the streets.
After being taken back to the Xishan Police Station, the penniless and hungry Finnish man took a shower and was treated to a bowl of warm instant noodles. [FULL STORY]
