Lufthansa Shopping Centre and Peking University

Today’s travels took us to the largest mall in Beijing, the Lufthansa Shopping Centre, as well as the famous Peking University. While at the U we saw a memorial to Edgar Snow, whose wikipedia page is of course firewalled out of reach of PRC citizens.

  1. haha just so you know, the chinese in the picture you have up, titled ‘love graffiti’ means:
    ‘bean[someone’s nickname] (heart) big pigs forever’
    or in pin-yin: ‘Dou (heart) da zhu dao yong’

    haha it made me smile.

  2. it is, but that character, jia, means ‘home’. the pig as the radical just gives meaning to the word. zhu [the second character after the heart] actually means ‘pig’.
