Istvan Mezo, 36 years old, is a mathematician from Hungary who works in a university in Nanjing.

Having lived in Nanjing for almost four years, the Mezo family has found their own way to enjoy the life here. The family go out every weekend. “You can never get bored in Nanjing. There are so many places to visit, so many things to do, and so many restaurants to go, as well as so many activities to take part in. How can you sit at home when you have a whole new world to discover?” explained Istvan.

Istvan said he had a thing for challenges and complex things. Chinese language is complex, and so is its culture. Coming to China is certainly a complex challenge that suits him. Actually, his knot to China can date back to the year of 2011, when he went to Hong Kong for a conference. The complex Chinese characters instantly drew his attention. When he came back to his country, he bought a book about Chinese writing system, and started to learn by himself. By the time he came to China, he had already got some Chinese knowledge. He took some classes on Chinese, and now he can not only speak Chinese, but also write some. He calls the process of learning Chinese “amused”.
