    “A small room with walls and windows, always runs in the middle of the road, with pedestrians walking on both sides.” Guess what that is. It’s a car. Chinese characters are considered to be pictograms, so why can’t we find any wheels on the character? Uncle Hanzi will travel back in time to see the cars people “drove” in China 2,000 years ago. #Chinese
