I now walk with my nose a little bit higher

This isn't a real post. I just wanted to note something for posterity.

For the past 4 months I've been living in an apartment building that has a name, but I never knew what it was. The name is prominently displayed on the outside of the buidling in beautiful gold Chinese characters, but it's written in a cursive style which is difficult to read; therefore, I haven't been able to look up their meanings. Yesterday, a student enlightened me.

My building is called 羅浮宮廷 (Luó Fú Gōng Tíng).

It means "Le Louvre Palace Courtyard."

Damn!

Thank you! I hope I'll know the results soon.

Hhm I can speak a Chinese dialect: Wenzhou. Hahha it's unuseless.. But I can understand madarin, talking is more difficult for me, but I can talk mandarin a bit. My biggest problem in Chinese is definitaly reading! It's so difficult.

But anyway you are Chinese right? Are you now following lessons for the Chinese language? Good luck!
