I am keen on learning languages. So far I have tried French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese and Portuguese. I suck at all of them! Well maybe in Spanish and Japanese I can converse.

I’m fascinated by Chinese characters. The kind of pictographs. I fucking love them! They are so cool. I know about 300-400 Japanese kanji but after learning these my level has stagnated. I just find them so hard to learn.

I feel like Chinese culture has so much to offer. I like the Tang period with its art, poetry, architecture and refined mannered culture. I think Tang era China highly influenced Japan and Japanese culture.

I have a poet friend who goes to China to learn martial arts. The Great Wall must be amazing.

China is so interesting and it’s satellite civilizations like Korea and Japan.
