Beijing, July 30 (IANS) A 75-year-old man in China is building a castle to win back his wife who separated from him 10 years ago.
After living alone in a cottage for the past 10 years, Luo Runqi of Chongqing municipality began building his “dream castle” in December 2009, the Shanghai Daily reported Friday.

Luo wakes up at 5 a.m. every day, has breakfast and immediately starts work on the house. “I will give it to my wife as her 70th birthday gift.”

The castle - built in “European style” - has fireplaces and wine cabinets and the path to the main entrance is like a labyrinth, Luo said.

“I calculated and there would be 40,000 bricks to be laid, I can do about 400 bricks every day,” Luo said.
