That is very fascinating information thanks!
I am translating a Chinese theatre script based on the life of Der Ling in the Palace, and a particular Parisan street and park were mentioned in it... I believe Der Ling had made reference to them in the book Kowtow, but I haven't been able to get an English copy of this book.
So, I'm wondering if you are able to tell me what was the Street that the Yu family lived in when Yu Keng was serving as a Minister in France? And (it should be in the same chapter of the book) what was the park they used to go to to take a ride on the coaches?
Thank you in advance.
