I feel bad that I’ve slightly abandoned the blog as I have been obsessed with 微博, the Chinese version of twitter and then tumblr which is so much more exciting for the short attention span folks like me. Every other second there are cool new things to check out and look at, and this blog I painstakingly built is a little isolating.
Anyhow, I have been out and about doing interesting things and I leave you with a random sign in the hutongs.

I can’t believe anyone can text in Chinese. Impressed. Now can you please tell me what that road sign actually says? I blogged about it in Helpful Shanghai Road Signs, (http://nanchanglu.blogspot.com/2010/05/helpful-shanghai-road-signs.html) but I reckon I was pretty far off the mark…..

hi fiona, thanks for stopping by. the 4 characters mean ‘school ahead’. Well, I spent 10 years in school with Chinese as part of the curriculum, so it’d be shameful if I couldn’t read/write. :)
