顺祝各位 龙年大吉 Jan 23, 2012

A friend said that he read that not only is this the year of the dragon, but it's also the year of the water dragon. I immediately thought of the calendar system of 天干地支, and explained to him how it worked.

I looked it up afterwards. Indeed this is 壬辰年, and lo and behold, 壬 is indeed the sign associated with water.

对 “湖石垂柳” 的猜测 Nov 19, 2013

有点像好几年前我看到的圆明园中的景色。

"规划有春、夏、秋、冬四园十八景" Nov 19, 2013



http://www.szyljt.com/jtxw/xmxw/2013/1011/607.shtml


美国洛杉矶“流芳园”二期工程开工

时隔五年,坐落于美国洛杉矶汉庭顿植物园内的中国园“流芳园”二期工程,于2013年9月23日开工。





Looks like they're in the process of building a miniature 石舫. Right now 流芳园 has 3.5 acres. When complete, it would be 12 acres, at least 3 times as big.

Steve,

你可真厉害!我原以为别人会说这座古典园林是在中国南方某地,而不会想到是在美国加州洛杉矶地区。

原来我在加州居住时,曾多次参观汉庭顿图书馆。这次重游故地看到流芳园,对我确实是一个很大的惊喜。将来等流芳园全部建成后,我一定还会再来。

推荐:《苏园六记》 Nov 20, 2013

孙先生久居国外,看到这样精美的中国古典园林是有一些怀乡之情吧?呵~ 您有时间不妨观看一下六集《苏园六记》。其中的解说词堪称同样经典:

“苏州园林,作为一种独特的历史文化的结晶,有着不可替代的个性。有的发达国家的人士说,你们的园林,我们即使能把所有的东西都复制的一模一样,但那些古树却是是永远无法复制的。”

雕梁易构,古树

雕梁易构,古树难成。若找点时间亲临苏州,对那里的古典园林体会可能更深~

谢谢 James 的推荐!其实,从我小时候算起,我曾多次去苏州旅游,最近的一次是去年九月。但去年那次,给我留下的印象极坏。为方便起见,我参加了旅行社组织的一日游。旅行社收费不菲,但他们吹得天花乱坠,说是苏州主要的园林他们都会安排。实际上,他们安排的都是些门票便宜或免费的景点,其中还包括苏州丝绸厂和一家玉器翡翠首饰店。像拙政园、狮子林这种门票相对较贵(其实也就是约 10美元)的景点,他们都不安排。我们想自己再去,却已经没时间了。

去苏州丝绸厂和那家玉器翡翠首饰店时,导游央求我们购物,并公开承认他将从中提成。那家首饰店,纯粹是家骗子店。接待游客的那个“老板”的嘴脸,不由得让我想起了《十五贯》中的娄阿鼠。我们离京出去旅游前,亲戚们千叮咛万嘱咐,要我们小心别上当受骗。他们说,我们在国外多年,已经丧失了“免疫力”。 我看并非是我们丧失了“免疫力”,而是“病毒”泛滥、防不胜防!

《苏园六纪》 Nov 20, 2013

多谢 James 介绍推荐。 可惜 Amazon.cn 搜索没有结果,否则我这个懒人一定会邮购一集 DVD 的。

Yueyin, 石舫的建筑进展神速。正面看比侧面大多了。 其实我说 miniature 也是跟颐和园的石舫相比。In the '60s and '70s, they turned it into a place where they sell food and drinks to the public. I'm sure they know better these days.

A Quote Nov 20, 2013






Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.

- Mark Twain

这些年国内的旅游业,特别是热点景区确实到了非整治不可的地步了。美好的景致和愉快的心情经常被这些恶劣的行为破坏。记得好友去年夏天去黄山旅游,她回来时谈了一句感想:黄山只有那座山是好的,其他的都没法说的...尤其是导游强制消费~:D

呵~不知Steve看不看国内的视频?下面的视频较好,就是有点广告。 家里70多的老父亲在我的多次推荐下,终于看了一集。第二周,我去他家里。他告诉我,已经全部看完了六集,准备再一遍。这部共3小时的风光片的背景音乐、解说词和景致抓拍都非常出色。看完后,再去苏州时自己就是最高水平的导游...
