丽江到重庆:云南和贵州的旅程

September 14, 2012

Lijiang to Chongqing: Travels in Yunnan and Guizhou (with photo captions in English)

上个月,我从日本长崎坐船来到上海,然后坐飞机到云南昆明玩儿。游览过丽江和大理后,我路过昆明,在云南曲靖待了几天。曲靖便是云南省的第二大城市,却好像一个外国人都没有。我一下客车走在南城门广场就感觉到周围的人们都在好奇地看着我。但是对我来说,这是一件不值得惊讶的事。我在日本也待了一年,因为个子高我常常引起人们的关注。我觉得这样对外国人是出于好奇心,大部分是没恶意的,所以受到关注还能放心。过了不长时间,我在曲靖交到了几个朋友。我们一起去吃火锅,烧烤什么的,然后去唱歌。下一天我们一起去曲靖最美丽的公园,也进了一家”鬼屋”,最后在朋友的家里吃了晚饭。我离开曲靖的时候,三个人来送我了。我们一起拍照片,然后把照片打印出来做个纪念。我坐客车到贵州黄果树。一路的风景都特别美,山岭绿绿的,深谷烟雾弥漫。我有点儿遗憾我不能呆在贵州很长时间,因为过了几天我必须到重庆赶飞机。但虽有遗憾,来日方长,下次就能够悠闲地观看。我在黄果树的大自然里一条弯曲的路上走的时候,来了一辆出租车,我们商量价钱后我就坐进去了。里面还有两个湖南人。我们跟司机在一起吃个饭。司机居然比我年轻,他二十一岁。我和两个湖南人走进了风景区,观赏了许多奇怪的石头和汹涌的瀑布。之后我一个人去看壮观的黄果树大瀑布。它有80多米高,站在很远也可以感到它的水雾。离开了黄果树,我坐客车到安顺,吃了很多美味的小吃后再坐车去贵阳,因为安顺到重庆的火车票都卖完了。在贵阳我终于拿到了一张火车票:零点44分出发,夜行硬座。买好了票我走在贵阳的路上看夜景,然后在火车上睡觉。睡醒时已经经过成都了。最后,我一路顺利地赶到飞机回上海了。

    Kieran you’re such a talented language learner! As a Chinese, I could be so proud of my language that secretly I have this arrogant thinking that no foreigners could ever master it unless they live there, but you’re certainly on your way to prove I’m wrong. Hurray for you! I’m Tong, by the way. I’m not sure if you remember me, but we met in Japanese speech contest last semester and I’ve been reading your blog since. It’s so nice to know your commitment to East Asian languages (astill goes strong. Unfortunately for me, I decided to give up Japanese because the program in my new school (Barnard College, Columbia University) is too intensive. I’m still learning English, which is honestly the most easy-at-first-sight-but-actually-difficult language I ever known…

      Hi Tong!

      Of course I remember you. Congratulations on admission to Barnard! You must have worked hard. Thanks for the encouragement! It’s not only you, but many Japanese think the same way. Certainly, there is a great imbalance between the number of Chinese who learn English and Western culture at a high level and Americans who do the reverse. I only have to work hard to prove that thinking wrong!

      Will you keep up your Japanese studies on your own? Sounds like you have your hands full at the moment. What are you studying at Barnard?
