Fight Against Maturity

Me? Oh, I just stopped off on this island…for 27 years.

There’s more at Return of ‘Robinson Crusoe’

A Taiwanese fisherman shocked his family by suddenly reappearing – after being deserted on an island for 27 years.

Hu Wenhu, 58, went on a fishing trip to the Indian Ocean in 1981 and stopped at Reunion Island for a short stopover, reports Taiwan Network.

“We arrived at the island after three months at sea, and the captain told the 30 of us that the ship would sail again in 15 days,” he said. “However, when I came back 15 days later the ship had already left with the others, and I had to beg on the streets.”

With the help of the islanders, Hu learnt French at school, opened a Chinese restaurant on the island and later he even married three times.
