    Nicaragua’s ambassador to Taiwan in profile (2021/02/22)

    Nicaragua Ambassador to Taiwan Mirna Mariela Rivera Andino assumed office last year on Oct. 14. Formosa News reporter Stephany Yang caught up with her to learn more about her favorite Nicaraguan cuisines, as well as her goals as the Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan.

    Typical breakfast will always include this. It's called Gallo Pinto.

    Nicaragua's new ambassador introduces a traditional Nicaraguan breakfast called Gallo pinto. It consists of rice and beans, and is typically paired with coffee, fried eggs, and avocado, and cream cheese in the morning.

    Mirna Mariela Rivera Andino
    Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan
    As you can see it's very simple. It's just rice and beans. But we re-fried it and seasoned it. We will eat with cheese, cream or tortilla.

    Here at the park, she brings out this other traditional dish called nacatamal, which is eaten during holidays such as Christmas and other special occasions. It's very similar to Taiwan's zongzi.

    Mirna Mariela Rivera Andino
    Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan
    I like to eat zongzi. But I put a bit of lime in it. Because I'm used to the more sour flavour of this. So I always make my own. (Nacatamal) is a bigger version of zongzi. It's made of corn, potatoes, and we added vegetables in it or usually pork and beef. For me, it always have a taste of sour.

    Rivera formally assumed office as Nicarguan ambassador to Taiwan on Oct. 14. She studied in Taiwan on a scholarship program and graduated from Ming Chuan University in 2018. She says what she loves most about Taiwan is the kindness of its people.

    Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan
    The Taiwanese people are so friendly. Everytime they see you, if you are a little bit scared, they take care of you. For example, it's a rainy day, and I will think it's the worst day of my life because I forgot an umbrella. Somebody will come over and just give me one. Or tell me the address. I always felt like I was taken care of. That's the best thing that I discovered from Taiwan from Day 1. From Day 1, the Taiwanese people made me part of their homes and their families. I think that's the best part about Taiwan as a foreign student because you are always scared of what you are going to do alone? But you never feel alone here. You make friends fast.

    Even during the COVID-19 pandemic Taiwan and Nicaragua have maintained close trade ties. In October, Taiwan External Trade Development Council collaborated with Nicaragua in a virtual trade expo to promote Nicaraguan seafood. Rivera says the most important Nicaraguan export product is lobster, followed by shrimp. Taiwan is a major buyer of Nicaraguan products, accounting for more than 28% of exports last year. In her first few months as ambassador, Rivera plans to promote more Nicaraguan products in the Taiwanese market.

    Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan
    I would also like to promote more of our products because even though we are really present in the Taiwanese markets, there's a lot more opportunities to grow. I'd like to promote a more diverse input of products into the Taiwanese culture. We have alot that you would love. We are the second greatest exporter of beef. I heard that eighty percent of the Beef Noodles is supplied by Nicaraguan beef and Paraguayan beef.

    Mirna Mariela Rivera Andino
    Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan
    This is all the updated information that we can find and gather. We put in here beautiful pictures of Nicaraguan traditions.

    Rivera says another one of her goals as an ambassador is to strengthen cultural ties. One example of promoting Nicaragua culture in Taiwan is the Nicaragua Park in New Taipei City. A few months ago, a new sign was created at the park. They've added images of Nicaraguan traditions. Rivera says the park serves as an important symbol of the strong relationship between Taiwan and Nicaragua.

    Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan
    As an ambassador during my term, I'd like to help strengthen the relationship of cooperation between Nicaragua and Taiwan. I want to bring more closer together the people or culture traditions and introduce more of Nicaragua culture to Taiwanese people. I want our culture and our people to translate more into Mandarin. So people can know about our literature, about everything that we have to offer.

    As the Nicaraguan ambassador to Taiwan, Andino hopes to further strengthen the ties between Taiwan and Nicaragua, and introduce the beauty of each country to the other.

    尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜專訪

    去年10月14日,李蜜娜正式出任尼加拉瓜駐台大使。透過民視英語新聞記者的專訪,帶你一起來品嘗李蜜娜最喜歡的尼加拉瓜美食,也聽聽她對未來的展望。

    [[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    "尼加拉瓜傳統的早餐中,一定有這一道料理,黑豆飯”

    尼加拉瓜新任大使親自介紹傳統的尼加拉瓜早餐,由豆類混合米蒸煮而成的黑豆飯,搭配咖啡、煎蛋、酪梨和奶油乳酪。

    [[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    "你可以看到,這非常簡單。只是米飯和豆子。我們重新油炸並調味,與奶酪、奶油或玉米餅一起吃"

    Nacatamal也是尼加拉瓜的傳統食物之一,類似台灣的粽子,常見於聖誕節或是特殊場合中。

    [[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    "我喜歡吃粽子,但是我在裡面放了些萊姆,因為我已經習慣了這種酸味,所以我都會自己做。Nacatamal是大型的粽子,是由玉米,馬鈴薯製成的,我們在其中添加蔬菜,或者添加豬肉和牛肉。對我而言,它總是帶有酸味。

    去年10月14日,李蜜娜正式出任尼加拉瓜駐台大使,她曾是台灣獎學金生,2018年於銘傳大學畢業。李蜜娜說,她最愛台灣人民的友善。

    [[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    "台灣人非常和善。每當他們見到你時,如果你有困難,他們都會幫忙。比如今天下雨,我會覺得這真是糟糕的一天,因為我忘記帶雨傘,然後就會有人過來給我一把傘,或是幫我找路。我總是覺得自己被照顧得很好,我第一天到台灣時,就發現這樣美好的事情,台灣人把我當成自己的家人。我認為這對到台灣的外國學生來說是最好的,因為你總是害怕要自己一個人面對所有的事情,但你在這裡永遠不會感到孤單,因為很快就能交到朋友"

    受到疫情影響,外貿協會在2020年10月用不同以往的方式,協助國內海鮮進口商採購尼加拉瓜海產。李蜜娜表示,尼加拉瓜盛產海鮮,其中又以龍蝦為外銷最大宗,其次是白蝦,台灣則是主要買家,占尼加拉瓜出口總額28%以上。在出任大使的頭幾個月中,李蜜娜希望盡量將更多尼加拉瓜的產品,推廣到台灣市場。


    [[[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    “我想推廣更多的產品,即使台灣已經能看到很多尼加拉瓜的產品,但還有很多成長的空間。我們有很多台灣人會喜歡的東西。我們是第二大的牛肉出口國。我聽說牛肉麵的牛肉有80%是來自尼加拉瓜和巴拉圭"

    [[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    "這裡有關於尼加拉瓜最新的消息。我們在這裡放上了尼加拉瓜傳統的美麗圖像。"

    作為大使,李蜜娜另一個目標是加強雙邊的文化交流,位於新北市的尼加拉瓜公園就是一個最好的例子。幾個月前,公園裡的尼國國情簡介的牌面進行更新,添加了尼加拉瓜傳統的圖像。李蜜娜說,尼加拉瓜公園正是兩國關係牢固的重要指標。

    [[[尼加拉瓜駐台大使 李蜜娜]]
    "在我任職大使的期間,我想促進尼加拉瓜與台灣間的合作,拉近兩國人民與傳統文化的距離,並讓台灣人對尼加拉瓜文化更加了解。我希望將更多尼加拉瓜的訊息翻譯成中文,這樣大家就可以了解我們的文學,以及我們的一切"

    身為尼加拉瓜駐台大使,李蜜娜要讓兩國的關係更加緊密,更加了解彼此的美。
