第二天一早吃过Ms. Jeane精心准备的爱心早餐,小柯和大伟退房去游览圣佛朗西斯郡。小镇人不多,游客也少,在快正午的大太阳下十分静谧。下了61号公路,小镇里主要有三条街道值得一看:Ferdinand Street, Commerce Street和Royal Street。镇里主要的老房子,博物馆和古董店都集中于这三条相交于一点的小街上。尤其是Royal Street,街两边不少古老的私人豪宅,房子前面都立着牌子说明房子的建筑年代和简短历史,很有人文气息。最值得一看的是在Royal Street上的祖母纽扣博物馆。虽然叫博物馆,其实主要是个礼品店,博物馆只是里面很小的一个角落,但是五花八门的纽扣收藏非常全,从美国建国以来每几十年的发展变迁娓娓道来,是个非常不错的私人馆藏。这些纽扣的主人现在专门用这些从全世界各地收集来的古董纽扣设计制作珠宝,设计精美,色彩鲜艳。可惜价格不菲,小柯犹豫了半天还是割爱了,最后在另一家小店里买了只彩色玻璃吹起来的大肚子鱼回家后挂在床头摇晃。

三条街道交汇处在Commerce街上有不少小餐馆,价格都不贵。我们去的那家是旅游指南上推荐的Magnolia Café,三明治做得不错,气氛也很轻松愉快。门口放着张鱼型铁板凳,虽然已经被雨水冲刷得锈迹斑斑,可鲜艳的颜色仍然绚烂夺目。小柯真想问问老板这张板凳卖不卖,不过想想自己也没地方摆,还是众乐乐吧。

回家的路上小柯不停感叹着时间过得太快,还没玩够呢就要回去了。那些路边的古老庄园都没来得及去,Myrtle里的闹鬼房子还没有亲自住进去体验,圣佛朗西斯郡里著名的各色热带鸟类还没能用我们的相机捕捉它们美丽的倩影…… 不过什么样的旅程都要留下些遗憾悬念才能吸引人再次故地重游不是吗?

不知什么时候,大伟悄悄把右手伸过来放在小柯左手上,收音机里唱着轻快的乡村歌曲。回家的路弯弯曲曲,远处的路慢慢变得模糊,仿佛融化在南方炙热的七月骄阳下。望着窗边飞驰过的牧场,远处高高垒起的干草垛,蓝天白云下自在悠闲午餐的奶牛,小柯满足的闭上了双眼,缓慢的进入梦乡。

Myrtle庄园在气势上远无法跟Oak Alley庄园相比,但是庄园门口的四个小孩雕塑和挂满“灰胡子”的橡树给庄园增添了无数诡异气氛。这个“灰胡子”是一种特殊的植物,又叫西班牙藤,因为这种灰色的藤状植物往往挂在其他的树上生长,就好像绿色的树长了灰色的西班牙式胡子一样。小柯和大卫参加的鬼宅游只在周末的傍晚举行,我们特意选了最晚的一场,天色已经开始变暗,老橡树的灰胡子投下阴暗的黑影,说不出名的鸟不时发出悠长凄厉的哀鸣。

导游是个金发碧眼的甩哥。长长的卷曲的金发在脑后梳成一个辫子,目光深邃,笑容迷人。穿着白上衣黑裤子,如果再系个领结批个斗篷那活脱脱就是从电影《采访吸血鬼》中走出来的神秘夺命18世纪吸血鬼!帅哥声音低沉,在庄园大厅昏暗的灯光下抑扬顿挫的带领我们开始上演现代版《鬼宅心惶惶》。

已经有200年历史的Myrtle庄园是1794年David Bradford将军建立的,至今在房子里已经发生过至少10起有记载的谋杀案了。据说庄园的地基建在印第安人的墓地上,大概这就是为什么好多人经常会见到一个裸 体的印第安少女鬼魂的原因了。

大卫将军有个好朋友,法官Clark Woodruffe(克拉克)。这位法官快40岁了,但是偏偏喜欢年轻冒昧的幼齿少女。不过在那个年代这种有钱的中年男人取年轻少女的事也很常见,所以大卫将军就把自己14岁的小女儿Sara Matilda(萨拉)许配给了法官克拉克,二人两年后结婚,生了两个女儿。第二年大卫将军死于黄热病,萨拉继承了Myrtle庄园,不过自己也很快就感染上了黄热病。没办法,克拉克法官只好从奴隶里找了一个心灵手巧的的年轻黑人女奴 Chloe(克箩伊)来照顾小孩。这个偏爱幼齿的克拉克法官自然不会放过青春年少的克箩伊,马上就强迫她和自己发生关系,并进一步纳其为妾。

萨拉病好见克箩伊得宠,当然气得跳脚,可又没啥办法。想来想去,强迫克箩伊离开不如让她自己愿意走来得彻底干净,那怎么样才能让克箩伊自己想走呢?萨拉眼珠一转,计上心头:妒嫉。对,让克箩伊妒嫉自己这个正牌,杀掉二奶气焰让她自动走人!于是萨拉每天穿上以前和克拉克恩爱时他买给她的浮华长裙,戴上精致夺目的希世珠宝,指望着气得克箩伊七窍生烟。可她算错了一步,克箩伊本是贫苦农奴出身,能有今天的地位不用在甘蔗园里顶着大太阳干活已经千恩万谢了,哪里还在乎这些穿戴?何况克箩伊是个文盲,这审美水平也自然和萨拉这位富家千金完全不是一个风格,甚至根本就没注意到萨拉的穿戴有什么变化。最后被气得要死的只有可怜的大奶。

萨拉看让克箩伊嫉妒自己是没戏了,于是又回到最原始简单的铲除情敌的方法去:给克箩伊头上加上莫须有的罪名。萨拉先是向丈夫控告克箩伊偷东西,然后说她打小孩。可这克箩伊二奶也不是好惹的主,在庄园里拥有广大的奴隶阶级后援,证明她既没偷也没虐待孩子,何况小孩们跟她感情还不错。萨拉的指控就这样不了了之。

不过可惜克箩伊有个致命的毛病。跟自古以来的文盲妇女一样,克箩伊非常喜欢传播8卦。可她不读书不识字,所有的8卦信息只能靠道听途说,甚至自己亲自去偷听。也不管人家谈论的东西是不是跟她八杆子都打不上,反正克箩伊一定要去偷听再广播给广大奴隶兄弟姐妹们作饭后农闲的娱乐消遣。这一点被萨拉发现,告到克拉克法官那里。克箩伊被严厉警告:再偷听就狠狠惩罚!

克箩伊收敛了没几个月耳朵就又痒痒了。一次克拉克法官和几个生意上的朋友在屋里谈事情的时候克箩伊又躬身躲在拉门外偷听,结果被从屋里出来取东西的克拉克法官撞个正着。克拉克法官差点摔个跟头,回头一看所有的朋友都掩着嘴偷笑。克拉克法官这个气啊,脸色红一阵白一阵的,立刻到厨房找了把菜刀一刀砍下了克箩伊的左耳。倒霉的克箩伊吃了这个大亏后以后再也不敢偷听了。那个年代也没有断耳再接技术,克箩伊只好找条绿色的头巾把头包住,遮住耳朵。受到惩罚的克箩伊自然也丧失了在屋里干活的特权,被送回种植园和其他奴隶一起干苦力。

克箩伊当然不甘心,也痛恨绝情的克拉克法官,不过更主要的是入奢容易入简难。已经习惯了轻松工作的克箩伊自然无法再忍受艰苦的种植园劳动,想尽办法要回到房子里去。机会终于来了。

在萨拉的大女儿过生日之际,克箩伊特意烤了一个生日蛋糕给这位她曾经照顾的小姐送去。不过克箩伊在蛋糕里面放了少量夹竹桃叶子。文盲的克箩伊以为这种叶子也就跟巴豆的效果差不多,等萨拉和两个女儿都生病以后,她们肯定需要人照顾,这样自己就可以名正言顺的重回庄园大宅了。可惜克箩伊不知道夹竹桃叶子和砷的毒性差不多,她放的叶子量足够毒死一批人了。萨拉和两个不到10岁的女儿在吃完蛋糕后就死了。而克拉克法官此时在外办公,得以逃过一劫。

克拉克回来后看到妻女惨死自然发誓要严惩凶手,奴隶们也吓得要死,结果就把克箩伊给供出来了。原来这克箩伊还喜欢吹牛,在做蛋糕之前就告诉别的奴隶她的完美计划了。克箩伊被拖到庄园前院,吊死在一棵树上,尸体被分成几块扔到密西西比河里。

自此之后克箩伊的灵魂就开始在Myrtle庄园里游荡了。其中最著名的一次事件是几年前的鬼节晚上,庄园搞历史重现活动,一个女导游扮演克箩伊,穿着女奴的长裙,头上包着绿色头巾。表演间歇演员们都用楼下的French Room,也就是一会要说到的庄园后来的女主人白天午睡使用的起居室,更衣。这个女导游性格活泼,打算吓唬吓唬游客或者其他同事。于是趁没人的时候举着一只蜡烛,把French Room里本来就很昏暗的灯光全关了,藏在午睡床旁边上半截是透明玻璃的更衣屏风后面等着人来。不一会儿,她听到清晰的脚步声向屏风的方向走来,举着蜡烛的假克箩伊一下子从屏风后面跳出来,大喊着“Boo——”,心想这还不得把这个倒霉蛋吓得半死!可是这兴奋的喊声只出来一半,另一半在假克箩伊的喉咙里被恐惧硬生生给粘了回去。眼前的倒霉蛋不是别人,正是活生生的克箩伊本人!克箩伊的服饰完全是18世纪的样子,不过布料要老旧许多,颜色也很灰暗,头上还裹着绿头巾。真克箩伊看着目瞪口呆的假克箩伊,发出“恩”的一声叹息,然后有些失望的摇了摇头,之后“噗”的一声吹灭了假克箩伊手里的蜡烛。这位扮演克箩伊的女导游做了所有见鬼的女人都会做的事情:一声凄厉的尖叫滑破房顶响彻整个庄园,然后她整个就瘫软在屏风后面,直到后来赶来的工作人员费了好大劲才把她拖出来问究竟怎么回事。吓得半死的女导游拒绝继续表演,可是后面还有两个团那,票都卖了,又找不到别人代替。大家好说歹说总算劝动她继续后面的两场表演,不过她的条件是无论何时至少有两个人要陪同在她身边。自此之后她就辞去了导游的工作,再也没回过Myrtle庄园。

下面这张照片是一位游客偶然拍到的,画面清晰再现了克箩伊的鬼魂,是Myrtle庄园灵异照片里最著名的一张,登上过无数电视屏幕。照片中的女人阴影和后面的房子是重合的,可以看出这个女人不应该是实体。国家地理杂志对这张照片中的人影作比例年龄等详细分析后得出的结论为:此人影属于一个年轻的非洲女性,身体右半部分比左半部分重量略大,应该残缺了某个器官。老天,这不是克箩伊是谁?更恐怖的是,再另一个研究中,研究人员对整张照片的光影进行还原,也就是根据光的来源,用计算机计算画出预测投影和实际投影比较,同样再根据实际投影来计算预测光的来源。结果发现这个克箩伊投下的影子光源和其他建筑物草木的光源都相反。不仅如此,计算机预测的投影照片比原照片竟然多出来两个人影:右边房顶上有两个坐着的小孩!这和萨拉的两个被毒死的小孩不谋而合,实在看得人得心惊肉跳!

 

克箩伊死后,家破人亡的克拉克法官决定离开伤心地,于是把庄园卖给了一对苏格兰夫妇:The Stirlings(斯特林夫妇)。斯特林太太是个非常时尚的人,她非常讨厌庄园里使用生长在路易斯安那沼泽地里的坚韧柏树打造的家具,认为没有法国和欧洲的高雅,是粗人的表现;同时她又非常迷信。于是斯特林太太让有钱的老公从法国运来所有的家具装潢,大厅门的玻璃上要刻上十字架的花纹,所有水晶吊灯顶上都雕刻不同的小天使保护每个方位。她每天早上起来最喜欢做的就是下楼去法国房间,因为里面所有的家具包括墙上的镜子都是从法国运来的,把家里伺候的女奴都召集进来,斜靠在午睡床榻上给她们分配工作,午饭后也一定要在这里午睡。壁炉上的大镜子顶端中间也有两个天使,分别保护她的左脸和右脸。小柯听着帅哥导游偷偷捅捅大卫:看看,有钱就是好啊,不仅可以用昂贵化妆品加名门珠宝,还能请天使保佑自己的两边脸蛋!

当然这和后来斯特林太太的强化保护措施比起来还算不上什么。那个时候人们相信灵魂看到这些天使啊十字架啊虽然进不来,但是他们还是可以从锁孔里通过的。于是斯特林太太要锁匠把所有的锁孔倒置,期待这些灵魂们都是低能鬼,看到反装的锁眼就会迷惑发呆,然后就傻乎乎走鬼了!不过估计后来她自己也觉得这个低能理论站不住脚,最终让人把所有的锁眼都盖住才放心。小柯心想,这个斯特林太太自以为聪明,以为把房子密封得严严的,外来游魂野鬼怎么都进不来,可没想到自己买的这个庄园有内鬼,封住了房子内鬼也走不了啦!包括以后再发生的那些凶杀案的冤鬼都被迫成了常驻户。

这个斯特林太太超级喜爱的法国屋也被叫做“行李屋”。因为至今这个房间里所有的家具还都是斯特林太太用过的,没有被更新,所以每个导游都要向游人强调请不要拍照打闪光灯,请不要坐、靠在家具上。前导游波比女士一次在工作中带十几个游客进入法国屋,结果看到一位胖胖的老妇坐在窗前的古董沙发上面,不时的拽着身边的一位年轻男子的衣袖和他喃喃的说着什么。波比导游很生气:这个女人不仅不听从要求,还在我讲话的时候在下面开小差,真恨不得去一把把她揪起来!不过转念一想,这个胖女人年纪这么大了,说不定是腿脚有问题,或者有什么事情非要跟那个年轻男游客说。游览结束后波比女士特意去寻找刚才这两个人,结果只找到那个年轻男游客,估计胖老妇去洗手间了。波比问他和他同来的老妇有什么问题,是不是健康状况不好等等。结果男游客满脸诧异的问:“我是一个人来的,你说的是谁?”奇怪的波比女士于是详细的向他描述了她看到的老妇模样。刚说完这位男游客就哭了,原来波比描述的人正是他刚刚去世的祖母,他之所以一个人旅游就是要去参加祖母的葬礼!现在大家就知道为什么法国屋又叫行李屋了,因为这间屋是最容易显现游客的“感情行李”的屋子,类似的事件还发生过很多。

近期关于法国屋最恐怖的见鬼经历是Myrtle庄园现在的主人夫妇。他们买下庄园后进行了大规模装修,本来是打算住在这里的。妻子特别喜欢法国屋,在原来的床上搭上了一个双人床垫当了自己的卧室。一个月黑风高的晚上,不知道为什么整幢房停电了。妻子隐隐听到房间外面的厅里有奇怪的声响,好像什么人破门而入了一样。妻子十分担心,可丈夫睡得象个死猪,于是勇敢的妻子抓过手电筒打算自行上楼察看一番,因为楼上的四间卧室都睡着客人,她要确定客人没有受到打扰。可是手电筒也跟抽了风一样不工作,妻子没办法只好采取最古老的照明方式,点着蜡烛上了楼。还好,所有的客人都在熟睡,没人被打扰。房子里各个角落也都正常,没有人进来的痕迹。妻子松了口气,放松心情拿着蜡烛回到法国屋,上床躺到丈夫身边。就在她吹灭蜡烛准备就寝的那一瞬间,床右边洗手间的门“吱呀——”一声突然打开了。“天,这一定就是刚才我听到的声音了,有人进来了!”妻子吓坏了,本能的靠近丈夫抓住他的胳膊,丈夫的体温和呼吸让她安心不少。终于,一个人影举着蜡烛从洗手间出来了,妻子惊恐的睁大双眼看这个贼究竟是谁。目光落在这不速之客脸上的一刹那,妻子的心脏停止跳动两秒,脑子嗡嗡直响,浑身的汗毛都竖立起来。来人不是别人,正是——她的丈夫!妻子迅速从床上滚下来,双唇颤抖,结结巴巴说不出话来,指着床左边张大嘴。微弱的烛光下,床左半边的被单是被掀开的,隐约看出一个人形压出的痕迹。丈夫大着胆子去摸被子里,结果里面冰凉,仿佛里面放满了冰块。两个人吓得屁滚尿流的跑出法国屋,再也没敢进来。此后这对夫妇迅速搬到北方,决定开放庄园作为旅游景点。他们对整幢庄园大宅都进行了翻修,力求恢复庄园原貌。在指挥装修的过程中,妻子绝不踏进法国屋半步,最多站在门口指点一下。看来真正撞鬼听起来好玩,但却真能造成永久的心灵创伤呢!

不能打闪光灯,颜色不好。这就是那张著名的见鬼法国古董床

法国屋外面就是一个长方形的小厅连接着前后门,厅里放着一架破损的古董钢琴,钢琴后面铺着红地毯的楼梯通向楼上的四间卧室,对面墙上挂着著名的锁魂镜。据说这面镜子下面的小桌子在葬礼的时候用来放死人尸体,这是南方的古老习俗。尸体往往要放好几天供远路前来的宾友吊唁。那时人们相信镜子具有锁住灵魂的能力,如果在停放尸体的时候不用黑布把镜子遮起来,那死人的灵魂就会进入镜子永远不能出来。后来南北战争的时候庄园被用来停放邦联士兵的尸体,奴隶们也跑得跑散得散,自然没有人去用黑布遮盖这面镜子。究竟镜子里被锁住了多少鬼魂一直都是个迷,不过有一点可以确定,这面镜子有很多无法解释的怪异现象出现。

镜子的边框一直是原来的古董,但是镜面隔几年就要更新。因为这面镜子莫名其妙的就开始从上向下变黑,直到整面镜子完全不能用。工作人员每几年把完全黑掉的镜面换下来打破成三份,按照宗教传统分别埋在三个地方。新换上的镜面没几个星期又开始慢慢变黑,而且总在同一个地方出现一个女人的侧影,侧影左边出现几道象熊爪抓过的黑色痕迹。镜子的边缘也会在同样的地方反复出现小孩的凌乱指纹。

这还不算,很多游客都在镜子里照出鬼影。有时是一个黑衣女人,有时是楼梯上站着的一排邦联军人。所以导游要每位游客对着镜子拍两张照片,一张打闪光灯的,一张不打,看有什么灵异现象出现。小柯让大卫七照八照结果还是什么都没看出来,失望之余暗中自我安慰:这要真见了鬼还不定要吓得怎么样呢!

著名的锁魂镜和“吸血鬼”导游,注意看镜子中间靠右的女人侧影和她身前代表权力象征的熊爪子印

再说说关于这个厅里楼梯与鬼有关的典故。斯特林夫妇死后他们的女儿萨拉和丈夫威廉穆斯经历了南北内战继承了Myrtle庄园。这个威廉穆斯是个律师。有一天他在绅士房里教儿子语文,突然听到前院有人经过并大喊着需要一个律师。威廉穆斯迅速走到前廊看是怎么回事。还没搞明白呢,一个骑在马上的邦联军人对着威廉穆斯的心脏就是一枪,这个高个子男人立刻倒在血泊里。儿子听到动静出来一看吓坏了,哭着把威廉穆斯拖进大宅里,一直向法国屋外的楼梯拖去,同时大喊他母亲萨拉。萨拉听到动静迅速向下楼跑,看到血淋淋的丈夫大叫一声。儿子也拖着威廉穆斯上楼,大家会合在第17级台阶,然后威廉穆斯就彻底没气了。直到今天也不明白究竟是谁杀了威廉穆斯,为什么。这之后就有住在Myrtle庄园的游客报告说听到过女人的尖叫,紧接着就是16响沉重的脚步声,然后就是人摔倒的闷响。

 

厅的另一边是餐厅,淑女屋和绅士屋。庄园于80年代改成早餐旅馆后有不少大胆另类的年轻人在这里举行婚礼,婚宴就在餐厅举行。一次小规模的婚宴中,好多客人都感觉到桌子底下有什么东西在不停动来动去,不停碰大家的大腿。导游帅哥的理论是,萨拉两个小孩的鬼魂是非常调皮的,他们最喜欢做生前大人不允许他们做的事,比如在桌子底下爬来爬去,乱动客人的手脚恶作剧等等。还有一次一个两岁大的宝宝游客说他看到餐厅的水晶吊灯上坐着一个小女孩;而两岁大的小孩虽然具有说谎的能力,但却不能想像出没见过的东西。这样看来,这个小孩一定是在什么时间真的看到过吊灯上的女孩。很多女性游客在这几个屋子经常会经历的就是丢失一只耳环,有些时候能在非常奇怪的地方找回来,有些时候不能。据说这是克箩伊的恶作剧,因为她只有一只耳朵,只需要一只耳环就好了。有一次一个客人偷偷的在房间里玩碟仙招克箩伊的鬼魂,问自己丢的耳环在哪。结果克箩伊给出的回答是:B——E——A——K。这个客人忘了克箩伊是个奴隶,根本没学过读书写字,估计她给出的字母就是她觉得好看的,或者也许她想说的是“bake”——耳环放在她烤的毒蛋糕里。

餐厅一角,桌子上放着仿制的毒蛋糕

 

淑女屋在绅士屋的左边,屋里窗前的沙发前放着一个古董咖啡桌。一般闹鬼的大宅中都有一个地方叫冷点,或者灵异点,是屋里鬼气最重灵力最强的地方,可以左右哪个鬼魂留下,哪个鬼魂离开和离开的方向。这个咖啡桌所在的位置就是冷点。FOX电视台在庄园里取景拍摄电影的时候就曾经发生过所有放在餐厅里的摄像器材莫名其妙跑到这个点的奇怪事情。

淑女屋的正上方二楼是著名的绿房间卧室。南北战争的时候庄园被用作医院,一个右脚受伤爱抽雪茄的邦联军人被送到这里来治疗。但是这个人一是不相信医药,二是他不想早早治好重返战场,于是一直拒绝任何医疗治疗,只让护士每天给他换绷带。结果这个军人就得了坏疽病,不得不截肢,最后在绿房间里死于坏疽。这个绿房间是庄园里客人报告遇鬼事件最多的。许多人早上醒来会觉得右脚麻木或者剧痛,但是一离开这个房间就没事了;整个庄园大宅里是严禁吸烟的,但是无数游客都说在绿房间里偶尔能闻到雪茄的味道。

淑女屋和绅士屋再后面的最后一个小房间是当年克拉克法官和妻子萨拉专门用来给小孩用餐的儿童餐厅。萨拉和两个孩子被毒死以后这间屋子就好长时间没被使用过了。后来庄园转手后儿童餐厅就被改成游戏室,以前四方形的儿童餐桌正好改成棋牌桌。桌子对面的壁炉上挂着一面凸透镜,视角广阔。斯特林先生玩牌的时候一定要坐在面对镜子的位置,这样自己就可以好运连连。果然,事实证明他也确实鲜有输牌。究竟是运气还是镜子的功劳大家就心照不宣了。南北战争的时候斯特林夫妇跑到别的地方,特意把庄园外观弄得极其破旧,躲过了很多次军队占领,所以至今内部家具仍然保存完好。可惜有一天一个骑马而来的士兵打算进入这个荒芜废弃的庄园瞅瞅,没想到庄园里面比外面看起来好得太多。这个士兵一高兴,立刻宣布庄园为他的私人财产。他最喜欢在游戏室里和朋友玩纸牌,不过他自己决定的幸运位置是背对镜子的那一个。一次玩牌他输个精光,最后输急眼了就把Myrtle庄园给压上了,朋友本来只是逗他玩玩,没想到赌注这么大,再说也不知道这是个闹鬼的庄园,在利益面前迅速屈服,利用镜子的帮助轻松赢下了庄园。士兵当然不干了,一定要拉着朋友说再玩一盘。朋友说先休息一下再玩,于是这个倒霉蛋傻瓜兵就开门跑到门廊上换换气。一脚刚踏出门槛,他马上意识到自己犯了兵家大忌:把后背暴露给自己的敌人,于是以迅雷不及掩耳的速度猛得一转头——可惜还是晚了,朋友一枪打在了他的面门,子弹把脑袋都给炸开了。据说现在游戏室里大门对面墙上挂的无名邦联士兵就是这个倒霉的人。旁边面对镜子的墙上挂了另一副人像油画,年代久远得油彩已经开始龟裂。不管从哪个角度看,小柯都觉得画中人都在顶着自己,当然这没有什么希罕的,这样的画法太普通了。不过让小柯听着心里发毛的是据说长时间盯着这副画像观察的话,画中人的表情会变:他会轻轻扬起嘴角微笑。小柯盯着看了半天,拼命擦擦眼睛,紧张得等着画中人冲我微笑,等了半天却还是自作多情。这已经是参观闹鬼庄园的最后一间屋子了,看来小柯是与鬼魂无缘了。用大伟的理论解释就是:我们中国人大老远的飘洋过海的到美国来,中国的鬼嫌累一定不会跟着飞这么远;而美国的鬼说中文的估计没几个,再说就算有鬼翻译,能够服务的区域有限,一般都不会出来主动吓唬中国人。所以我们一定是两不管,哈哈,这叫ghost-free!

淑女屋和绅士屋。前面铺着桌布的咖啡桌就是冷点

 

游戏屋最近的一次闹鬼经历是一个刚到Myrtle庄园的年轻女导游带领一班游客撞上的。她正给游客讲解那个倒霉的士兵的时候,身后一扇门的把手突然开始不停转动起来。这扇门后面就是餐厅,导游开始以为一定是那个落队的游客想从这里进来,所以也没在意继续讲。后来这个把手转得越来越厉害,不管导游怎么加大声音,甚至加上手势,也无法把大家的吸引力集中到自己身上。“算了,开门看看究竟是谁在恶作剧吧!”导游想着,无可奈何的暂停自己的演说转身拉开了门。眼前的景象吓得她说不出话来。门后哪里是什么餐厅,只有一个三层格子的储物间,里面空无一人,更不可能藏人。不仅如此,这个门把手完全是一面的,也就是说门的另一边根本没有把手,是平平的木头!导游倒吸一口冷气“砰”的关上了门,扭头看游客——大家早跑光了!只有两个胆大的年轻男女和男的推着一个坐轮椅的老太太张大嘴愣在原地。四个人迅速离开了游戏室。后来这个年轻导游央求这个现场的女青年和自己去庄园管理办公室把这次遇鬼经历纪录在案。因为庄园规定跟历史有关的鬼故事导游可以随便讲,但凡是个人经历,必须要有至少一个证人证明,在庄园登记以后才可以向游客讲述。

 

游览结束前,导游给大家传阅了一些在庄园里拍的一些著名的灵异照片,一张是大家已经看过的克箩伊的显灵照片,另一张是还未发表的照片,目前正在某大学的实验室里被做光学研究。照片据说是一个游客结束游览以后用照相机向庄园前门外漆黑的空地照了一张,不过闪光灯装反了,变成向内闪光,结果照片洗出来后明显看见四个邦联军人抬着一口棺材,身后一棵树燃着熊熊大火,远处的一棵树下吊着一个人型。小柯觉得那棵着火的树绝对是闪光灯造成的,因为这样闪错的照片本身颜色就会发橘红色,看上去好象着火也不足为奇。不过那四个邦联军人的形象真是很不可思议,这巧合也太巧了些!

正看着呢,大伟不知道怎么回事突然站立不稳,不小心碰了吊着水晶珠子装饰的古董台灯。台灯一倾斜,吊着的水晶珠子相互碰撞发出叮咚的脆响,把满屋子本来就紧张兮兮的游客们都吓得够呛,一个10岁左右的小孩更是吓得躲进妈妈怀里。所有人的目光都集中在大伟身上,还以为什么灵异事件发生了。大伟赶紧面红耳赤的摇摆双手解释:“是我不小心碰的,不是台灯自己倒了,不是台灯自己倒了!”我们的“吸血鬼”帅哥导游故意满面狐疑的说:“你确定?”大家哄堂大笑。

游览就这样结束了。鬼故事听得惊心动魄,不过小柯还嫌不过瘾,拉着大伟在庄园里面四处乱转,就指望着能有些什么离奇经历回去也好和父老乡亲添油加醋摆摆龙门阵那!左看右看,连庄园角落的空地都照了无数张照片,回来看还是半个鬼影子都没有。大伟说我们俩一身正气,鬼早吓跑了!小柯不理自己在那臭美的大伟,还想着游览开始之前卖票阿姨的话。那两个卖票和小卖部阿姨们都在这里工作好多年了,他们说鬼魂在房子里的气味都是不一样的,在这里待久的人进屋一闻就能闻出来。其中一个阿姨甚至亲身遇鬼,就在那小卖部里,头发被鬼剪下来大概10英寸一绺。不过因为房子里各处都是守护天使,这些鬼只是恶作剧而已,还从来没有发生过伤人事件。阿姨们说她们都闻出来了,那天房子里是肯定有鬼的,不过看来鬼也有心情好和不好的时候,小柯和它们注定无缘了。

Myrtle庄园除了周五周六晚5-8点这个闹鬼游之外,平时每日还提供历史游,专门介绍庄园的历史和内部陈列的古董文物。庄园里还有一家餐厅和酒吧,是圣佛朗西斯郡附近最高档的餐厅了,专营南方特色食物,海鲜甜点味道都是一流。当然,跟全美排名第一的美食之都新奥尔良比起来是小巫见大巫,但在附近小镇那绝对是首屈一指的。小柯一个朋友有一次来的时候还碰见了大明星尼古拉斯. 凯奇(Nicholas Cage)带着他的韩裔小妻子在这里喝酒呢!

小柯和大伟恋恋不舍的离开Myrtle庄园,开着车在伸手不见五指的小路上七拐八拐的回到玫瑰丘湖早餐旅馆,又打了两杆台球,三局乒乓才和着湖边隐隐传来的蛙声虫鸣沉沉睡去。

 结婚纪念之灵异之旅

2005年7月 

 

话说小柯和大伟结婚转眼两年了,结婚纪念偏偏赶上正忙的时候。于是两个夜猫子半夜嘀嘀咕咕,又上网搜寻了一番,终于决定干脆奔着新奥尔良周边的这些大种植园去好了,充分体会一下南部浪漫闲适的仲夏时光。
 

新奥尔良附近最著名的种植园豪宅当属Oak Alley Plantation,庭院豪华,景色绝美,门口一条300年老橡树枝蔓错落布成的林阴大道气势宏伟,实属一日游的绝佳去处;可惜我们打算过夜,而豪宅里面的房间只供游览,不对外出租。Oak Alley Plantation旁边的Laurel Creole Plantation是附近唯一详细介绍南部奴隶工作生活历史的种植园,只有白天的带解说游览,没有房间出租。这样一来,新奥尔良附近一个小时车程内看来是没有合适我们的庄园了。

小柯痴心不改,大伟也是不撞南墙不回头的硬脾气。两人翻箱倒柜找出路易斯安那州周边旅游指南(Off the Beaten Path)详细搜索,厚厚的书也没个什么头绪。两个人大眼对小眼正发呆呢,小柯突然灵机一动想起来两年前我们去过的Angola Prison Rodeo,也就是安哥拉囚犯斗牛大会的附近好像有不少庄园,包括一个著名的闹鬼庄园。斗牛本来普通,隔壁的德州牛仔牛妹满大街;可说起来这个囚犯斗牛大会,那可真是美国一景,有机会在每年4月和10月来路易斯安那旅游的游客一定不要错过这场盛事。小柯在开讲鬼故事之前不妨先介绍介绍这个疯狂的斗牛大会,反正七拐八绕的也能和后面的闹鬼庄园扯上点关系。

这个斗牛大会每年两次在路易斯安那首府Baton Rouge(巴吞鲁日)西北边不到一个小时车程的安哥拉镇举行。小小的安哥拉镇名不见经传,也没什么历史人文景观,来路易斯安那旅游的人大都冲着灯红酒绿歌舞升平的新奥尔良市去,本来谁也想不到去这个鸟不生蛋的乡村小镇去逛。唯一可能吸引游人的卖点那就是安哥拉镇地处61号公路尽头,而61号公路上有很多著名的大庄园豪宅,距离安哥拉镇小镇没多远的St. Francisville(圣佛朗西斯郡)更有200多年的历史,每年倒也吸引了不少美国人去“考古”。

正因为安哥拉镇处于61号公路尽头,再往下就是汹涌的密西西比河,州政府决定在这里修建一个州立重犯监狱,关进来的都是死刑或其他终身监禁的重刑囚犯。进出只有一条窄窄的61号公路,量他们越狱也跑不了多远。囚犯们的日子也很枯燥,被关在这个信息闭塞的南方小镇上,跑也没的跑,待着也无聊,平时除了养养牛啊马啊的也没什么好干。于是不知道哪位英勇的狱长决定让囚犯们自娱自乐:在监狱里举办斗牛大会。第一界斗牛大会始办于1965年,囚犯们和狱卒都空前兴奋,大会超级成功!

再说回这安哥拉镇。小镇看着只有几步之隔的圣佛朗西斯郡每年开无数大大小小的节日召集游客来聚会赶集自己也很不甘心,可又没啥自然资源,心里这个急啊。正在没辙之际,囚犯们的斗牛大会吸引了镇长的注意。小柯认为,这镇长一定是个绝顶聪明的人,用时髦的话说,就是大刀阔斧的新时代的改革者啊,果断的决定将囚犯斗牛大会公开变成旅游项目。斗牛于1967年公开,两年内吸引了周边无数游客,于是镇长进一步决定投资修建拥有4500个座位的大斗牛场,专门为囚犯斗牛大会服务。大斗牛场从1969年投入使用,每年都吸引大批游客,不仅是路易斯安那人和周边的南方人,很多美国各地的游客大老远的专门飞到新奥尔良再开车过来看呢!安哥拉囚犯斗牛大会迅速超越圣佛朗西斯郡成为61号公路上最著名的景点之一。

说了半天,这囚犯斗牛大会到底跟一般的斗牛有什么不同?一般的斗牛规规矩矩的,无非是一群勇猛或自认勇猛的青年男女骑到野牛或野马背上看谁待得时间最长。这个囚犯斗牛大会除了前面开场的儿童马术表演外,所有的参加着都是囚犯,他们穿着跟动画片里一模一样的白底黑色横条纹的囚犯服,坐在场地边缘跃跃欲试。斗牛项目也跟一般的大不相同,最著名的是“囚犯扑克牌大赛”。四个囚犯坐在一张牌桌四边假装在玩牌,但桌子上半张牌都没有。没一会,牛栏里放出一头长着锋利尖角的凶猛公牛。因为桌子和椅子都被漆成红色,所以牛会没命的向玩牌的四个人顶去。谁最坐得住,最后一个逃跑或者被顶飞谁就赢,奖品是现金。除此之外还有很多滑稽疯狂的类似项目,什么滚木桶,救同伴,疯牛挤奶等等,绝对让人看得目瞪口呆,佩服美国人的想像力,同时也感慨这些无聊透顶的囚犯们。反正小柯是头一次看到这么多兴高采烈喜气洋洋的囚犯,真比过春节还热闹那! 

小柯跟大伟旅行的日子在7月,跟这个斗牛大会暂时扯不上关系。不过当年从斗牛大会回家的路上看到著名的闹鬼庄园,Myrtle Plantation,一直都想来看看究竟是怎么回事。小柯巴巴的打电话去,满怀希望的问价格,一晚上$250!而且闹鬼的屋子还都租出去了,只剩下豪宅后面的客房(Carriage House)。没辙,还得重新琢磨地儿!

7月天又湿又潮,小柯踅摸要是去个有水的地方估计会比较凉爽,晚上在水边唱唱《在水一方》也挺浪漫,反正美国鬼子们也听不懂小柯唱什么。正巧和一个朋友谈及此事,她强烈向小柯推荐她曾经去过的一个Bed & Breakfast(早餐旅馆)。这个Bed & Breakfast是美国一种比较特别的旅馆,一般都是住在房东家里,房间不多,房子一般都属豪宅,按天收费,租一周的话有折扣。每天早晨房东提供早点,所有房客围桌而坐,边吃边聊,是个了解美国人生活起居的绝佳方式。

朋友推荐的这家叫Rosemond Lake Bed and Breakfast,坐落在圣佛朗西斯郡和安哥拉镇之间的丛林小径深处,紧邻玫瑰丘湖(Rosemond Lake),最近的地方离湖边也就不到20米,湖光林色,风景优美;到了夜晚更是人烟稀少,静谧安详。后院备有鱼竿,脚踏船和划浆船供房客免费使用。房子旁还有摇椅,吊床供游人作浪漫幸福状自拍。秋季时候房子四围和湖边的树会燃起熊熊的红叶之火,衬着房前的绿草黄花,活脱脱就是明信片里的世外桃源。

玫瑰丘湖早餐旅馆总共有四间房出租:两间大的,卫生间里带双人按摩浴缸,每晚$125;两间稍微小点的自带普通浴缸,价格便宜许多,$75。房间有限,去之前一定记得先打电话预约(225- 635-3176)。每个房间都至少有一面窗户直接面对着玫瑰丘湖。夜半十分两个半醉的人坐在窗边喝着红酒看窗外仲夏夜里湖水泛起微微鳞波,倒映着半圆的清月,再执手相看笑眼那么眉来眼去一下,哈哈,估计就连琼瑶奶奶也要陶醉了……

小柯的浪漫幻想在到达玫瑰丘湖早餐旅馆后迅速破灭。不是景色不美,也不是房间不好;事实上正是因为房子里的游戏太多设施太好让大伟眼睛迅速冒出狼一般的绿光,仿佛饿了三年第一次看到猎物的野兽,眼睛死死盯着游戏室里的Brunswick台球桌,嘴里发出怪兽般的呓语。新奥尔良一般酒吧里的台球案子都比较破,球也轻,怎么都玩不出在国内时那种球球撞击的清脆声响和爽脆质感。这个7成新的球桌立刻成了大伟两天的新宠,小柯只好无奈的舍命陪君子了。啊,我的浪漫计划…… 星光、月夜、湖水、呢喃……全都通通泡汤了,替代的是小柯撞球技术的显著提高。

房东Ms Jeane是个健谈的白人老太太,十分好客,尤其做得一手美味早餐。早餐在9点,过时不候。小柯和大伟都非常喜欢加了辣椒奶酪(Pepper Jack Cheese)的烤蛋饼,配以浇上正宗槭枫糖浆抹上黄油的爱心薄烤饼和两条口味浓重猪肉小煎肠,再喝一口新鲜的橙汁,感受沐浴在南方清晨略带湖水湿气的阳光——原来两个夜猫子久违了的早晨竟然这么美好!

当然,这次旅行的目的可不仅仅是来享受一下南方的悠闲生活,虽然在整个过程中小柯一直固执的幻想自己在体验《简.爱》或者《飘》里描述的庄园主门农闲时腐朽的资产阶级生活,虽然书里的太太小姐们每天不仅要打扮的象去赶集,还要读书、唱歌、跳舞;绅士们还要玩牌、打猎、骑马。而这个玫瑰丘湖早餐旅馆甚至不是真正的庄园!它始建于1963年,当时作为玫瑰丘湖周围居民的私人会所,后来改为餐馆。Ms Jeane的儿子Jon 1992年买下了这幢占地近3顷的房产作为母亲的养老场所,当年10月早餐旅馆开张。和真正的种植园豪宅相比,玫瑰丘湖早餐旅馆实在算不上有特色,但这是直接坐落在湖边的唯一一家早餐旅馆。即使小柯马上就要说到的Myrtle庄园在景色上也无法和其媲美。大伟早对小柯希奇古怪的白日梦和莫名其妙的怪想法习以为常了,什么《飘》啊,贵族们的社交啊到了他耳朵里不过是Blah,Blah,Blah;他更高兴在经历了一个半小时的湖上泛脚踏船的体力活之后我不再逼他去划手划浆船,于是无比兴奋的答应陪我去小柯向往以久的闹鬼庄园。

这个闹鬼的Myrtle庄园距离玫瑰丘湖早餐旅馆15分钟车程,就坐落在61号公路边。这个庄园在美国可是大名鼎鼎啊,据说是整个南方第一灵异鬼屋,全美第十三怪异场所。FOX和Discovery频道都对它有专门报道和纪录片(Unsolved Mystery 系列),至今仍无法解释频繁发生在这幢房子里的怪事。当然Myrtle庄园还是很美的,加上名气又大,自然吸引了不少电影公司来这里取景。很多演员都亲身撞鬼,吓的半夜跑掉再也不敢回来。包括全美妇女偶像Oprah Winfrey,一次包下了整个楼上的四间房,却在午夜匆匆迁出,一直拒绝向任何媒体或者庄园人员解释是什么原因。敢在这里过夜的人绝对称得上勇敢者,原因听完小柯讲下面的鬼故事们就清楚了。

Houston二日行——2004年7月

 

艾小柯
 

 

2004年7月,美国的国庆节要放假三天。我和大伟打算用这点时间出去转转,但是又不想去远的地方,于是两个人半夜琢磨了半天打算去新奥尔良旁边最近的大城市休斯敦去逛逛,说不定还能在某个注定的时间偶遇姚明呢。

计划已定,我们7月2号礼拜五中午出发,开车向休斯敦前进。Houston总体说来就是“大”。晚上10点开始进城,从I-10转45号路,立刻就要在100米内马上要穿过5条车道下高速,我紧张得手心冒汗,拼命抓着车门上的扶手。在downtown连单行路都有4个车道,我和大伟这种小城市的乡下人一开始都不会拐弯了。那天晚上的月亮是又大又圆,低低的,黄黄的,透过点点灯光的林立高楼,在深蓝的夜幕下窄窄的露出半个脸来,让人觉得这个城市那么的不真实。

按照计划,我们7月3号一早去了Johnson Space Center。Johnson Space Center是NASA三个航天中心之一,主要致力于宇航飞船遥控和太空站的研发。整个航天中心面积非常大,接待游客的只是一小部分。总体感觉是展览主要面向孩子和青少年,以航天知识的教育为主。展厅里有各种各样的机器人动物,各式各样的宇航服,模拟宇航飞船推进器,和每半小时一次的介绍宇航员太空生活的模拟太空舱。这里还有一个IMAX电影,放映四场不同的介绍人类太空探索发展和太空站知识的大屏幕电影。我和大伟最感兴趣的是参观NASA的航天设施和宇航飞船的主控制站。这两个项目都是包括在门票里的,就是需要排很长时间的队。小火车带着我们在巨大无比的航天中心里穿梭,我们参观了真正的火箭(退役后的),仍在使用中的模拟太空站和宇航飞船,飞船救生舱等。

离Space Center不远有一个海边小城叫Kemah,沿海的Board Walk遍布了各种Boutique小店:玻璃制品,装饰品,首饰,衣服,帽子店… 看得我眼花缭乱。在一家叫Lost Iquana的店里竟然看到了卖地道中国纸扇的,还有古董食盒,各式的古董梳妆台,木头衣箱,每一样都让我爱不释手,就是可惜没银子买。 大伟挑了一把“难得糊涂”的纸扇作纪念,得意洋洋的假扮楚留香。逛完了小店,站在海边的游乐园边看小孩子坐超级翻转海盗船大头向下的吱吱尖叫,远处有星星点点的帆船。

Kemah的摩天轮

 

中午饭是在著名的Aquarium Restaurant吃的。这家店在休斯敦共有两家分店,其实在我们住的Hyatt附近就有,不过据说Kemah在海边的这家味道更好。餐馆共有三层,里面有三个巨型鱼缸, 其中一个圆柱型的更是从一层直通到三层。每个鱼缸里都有各式各样的闪闪发光的热带鱼。最大的鱼缸有500加仑水,三条鲨鱼,两条sting ray,一只海龟和无数叫不出名字的巨型鱼。每天上午11点和下午5点半的喂鱼时间所有的鱼都会出来,场面煞是壮观。客人吃饭的时候就坐在这些巨大鱼缸的旁边,边吃边看这些闪闪发光的水中精灵。天气好的时候客人还可以坐在二楼的平台上眺望不远处大海和帆船。当然restaurant最重要的还是吃啦!我要了一个香煎雪鱼,大伟点了fried shrimp sandwich。这个三明治比较特别,不是一般的面包夹心,而是用类似墨西哥卷饼的软薄饼把馅卷起来吃,里面不知道放了什么调味酱,香而不腻,好味的很。加上fried calameri(炸鱿鱼圈)作开胃,两个人吃了个沟满壕平外加打包:味道真是呱呱叫。下次来Houston这个地方我一定忘不了!吃饱喝足去看广场上的小孩和地面喷泉玩,一个个的都被淋得透湿,阳光下的笑容那么灿烂。旁边有很多carnival游戏,我和大伟去玩喷水游戏,每人一把水枪,面前有一个旋转的圆盘,圆盘中间有一个小孔,圆盘连着一个可以活动的柱子,柱子上有一个毛绒玩具。游戏的目的是把水射进这个小孔里,谁射得多,谁的玩具就上升的快,最快的一个人赢得自己柱子上的玩具。大伟一举夺魁,给我赢了个打拳击的Scooby Doo。我是满载而归,不过大伟就有些郁闷:跟我们一起玩的都是小孩子,他很不好意思赢了人家小孩,于是拉着我就跑。

晚上自然是去泡吧,我们这两个不夜城来的人怎么能放过这样的机会好好比较两个城市的夜生活呢!在downtown走了一路,穿过无数条街,基本没有看到有现场表演的酒吧,看来休斯敦的夜生活跟New Orleans完全不是一个风格。后来倒是在一家餐厅的院子里看到有人在拉小提琴,我和大伟进去喝了个Martini, 烛光摇曳,微风习习,倒也很浪漫。逛逛走走,大部分的地方都是比较强劲的DJ音乐,看来也只能跳舞了。可惜跳舞的地方不是teenager聚集,就是需要加收门票并需super dress up的地方,大伟没穿皮鞋,进不去。 唉,休斯敦downtown的夜生活和我们这种习惯了现场爵士乐表演的休闲风格比较不吻合,一点都不来电。不过也许uptown会好些吧。

7月4号过得比较没有计划。上午去了百利大街的中国城买了一堆馒头,然后去老四川吃饭。地道的水煮肉和辣子鸡把我的胃都快烧化了。下午去看博物馆区的Menil collection。Menil collection是John and Dominique de Menil的私家珍藏,于1987年6月向大众开放。馆藏几乎一万五千件艺术品,大部分是现代艺术品,尤其是20世纪以后的超现实主义作品,比如毕加索的真迹。同时另外三区同时展出史前文物,拜震廷与中世纪作品,和种族部落艺术。只可惜我们来的时间不对,假日不开门。但是透过巨大的玻璃门还是能看到两幅巨大的花草油画,我一下子就被迷住了,以致后来回想起来心中还全是那斑斓的色块,遗憾了好久。博物馆所处的小区非常漂亮幽静,鸟语花香。大部分的房子都是single house,每栋都有自己的特色,很多是砖石结构的老房子,漂亮的雕花玻璃门们仿佛在诉说着房子里的秘密故事。偶尔会看到金发美女趴在树荫下的草坪上看书。如果将来住在Houston的话这个地方肯定是首选。没看成著名的Menil Collection, 我们去了第二个地方作代替:Museum of Fine Arts,不过没看到太多的让我心动的艺术品,可能是因为正在举办Latin American Inverted Utopia展览的缘故,雕塑品比较多,而我更喜欢看画。不过在二楼有玛雅文化的展览,很多早期雕塑的风格非常写实,真实到让人大吃一惊的程度。比如说一对裸体男女的小陶像,整体形象非常可爱,圆滚滚的好像动画片里一样,但是跟一般裸体雕塑的点到即至不同,裸女的下体被特意做出一道凹陷。我是头一次看到这么大胆写实的雕塑,又是快1000 年前的东西,很是意外呢。

晚上Houston Symphony在Miller Outdoor Theatre举办露天音乐会,之后燃放焰火。Miller Outdoor Theatre 位于休斯敦市中心的Herman Park中,近邻Rice University,环境十分优美。这里经常会举办免费的露天音乐会,是休斯敦人休闲的一个好去处。我们傍晚早早的就到了,在草地上占了个好位置,边吃边听。很多家庭也是全员出动,领着小孩,带着小狗,全家席地而坐。第一部分的交响乐大部分是爱国主义教育的传统曲目,中间也上来一个本地电台的知名主持人朗诵了一段歌颂独立战争中英勇捐躯战士的诗篇,看来爱国主义教育的形式真是世界大同啊。第二部分是脍炙人口的流行歌曲,我们旁边的大人小孩都是边听边唱,气氛十分热烈。最后一曲是柴可夫斯基的18进行曲,两边的15个炮台轮流发炮,场面十分壮观。礼炮也揭开了国庆焰火的序幕,所有的人都抬头望天,看美丽的礼花在夏日夜空绽放。空气里弥漫着淡淡的火药气味,混合着若有若无的青草味道和浓郁的烤热狗的香气。

在漫天的焰火中,我们起程开夜车回家。一路上,在5个车道的高速路最高处,无数的车都打着紧急灯停在路边欣赏美丽的焰火(大伟对美国的焰火十分失望,说还不如中国一个县城的规模,我就冲他吐舌头)。我们这两个小城市的小人物飞快的经过,努力追赶这个不属于我们的大城市的速度。大伟叹了口气说“回家啦!” 嗯,回家,真好。

圣安东尼奥逃难旅记

 

艾小柯

 

        2003年9 月14日,在南加勒比海形成的4级飓风Ivan (伊万)兵临美国墨西哥海湾,所有住在南部海湾的居民都如临大敌,尤其是New Orleans(新奥尔良)这个具有悠久历史的美国著名港口坐落于一片沼泽地中,整个城市位于海平面以下10英尺。如果飓风直接登陆扫荡,新奥尔良将变成一座水城,就好象电影“未来水世界”一般。从13日到14日早晨伊万形势越来越不妙,大部分学校已经停课,市长也紧急建议大家能走就走。13日晚全城出动购买应急物资,听说在Wal-mart(沃玛特超市)水和食物都基本上卖空了,最长的队要排一个半钟头,整个城市如大难临头一般,所有商店的玻璃都用木板钉了起来。

      我们本来是打算把窗户贴好,东西搬到高地再囤积点水粮严防死守的,后来形势日益严峻,朋友们也拼命的打电话商量走不走,走到哪里去。我们这才上网去紧急定酒店,那时候连休斯顿等在新奥尔良附近6小时路程内的范围都已经什么都定不到了。开始打算去圣路易斯朋友的家里躲两天,但后来要带上一个朋友,还是觉得诸多不便,就又试了试San Antonio(圣安东尼奥),正好我和大卫也早有到那里旅游的打算。没想到竟然让我们在www.hotwire.com上定到了当天在River Walk(圣安东尼奥市内的旅游景点,是一条沿河路)边上的三星级酒店,还特别便宜(一天才$55,税后)。所以最后临时决定向圣安东尼奥出发了。

      前10个钟头都是以每小时5到10英里的速度前进的。听说I-10(高速公路)上动都动不了,我们特意选了另一条人比较少的绕远的90号公路,可是都一样。路上被迫停下来无数次,看前后两面都是望不到边的车流,两旁都是沼泽,进退不得啊!尽管大家都很焦急的盼望能动起来,公路上仍然是秩序井然。我们后面的越南大婶偷空下车溜狗,右边的老哥干脆把左脚伸出窗外超级悠闲驾驶。我们也下了车无聊的在桥上找沼泽地里有没有藏着美国鳄鱼。在Lafayette(拉菲特),位于路易斯安那州西部)之前的加油站大多都没有87号油了,等着加高标号油的车挤满了小小的加油站。附近的小餐厅比如subway (赛百威) 什么的都关门了,好不容易找到一个厕所也要排队20分钟,闹得我在车上都不大敢喝水了!就这样蜗牛一般爬了10个钟头之后,终于于半夜12点开出了100英里之外的拉菲特,车速总算可以提高到50英里左右。4个小时之后到达休斯顿,车终于少了。我们快马加鞭在凌晨7点赶到了圣安东尼奥的旅馆。在前台签到的时候还不停听到有人给酒店打电话要求保留预定的房间,一问都是从路易斯安那逃难出来的,还在路上呢!

       一夜(其实是上午)无话。三个人大睡到下午三点起床,大卫不耐烦的等我们两个女生打扮停当之后,一行三人就开始了圣安东尼奥之旅。圣安东尼奥是德克萨斯州第二大城市,最著名的经典就是River Walk和Alamo (一座著名的教堂名称) 。小河哪里都有,没有什么特别的;不同的是经过两百多年的建造,圣安东尼奥河变成了一条风景秀丽的“地下河”。整个市中心街道“悬浮”于河岸之上,街角有或盘旋或风格现代的楼梯通入河边。一下楼梯简直豁然开朗!河水曲折蜿蜒,每隔几十米就会有如苏州园林般的石拱桥横跨而过。河中无数的鱼儿游来游去,成群结队的野鸭和鸳鸯向游人讨食。河两边五步一楼,十步一景,各种树木花草参差掩映,没有建筑的地方要么是各种风格的小喷泉,要么是色彩浓郁的马赛克图画。难怪美国人要称圣安东尼奥 是美国威尼斯了。河两旁的各种建筑除了酒店,最多的就是各种风格口味的餐厅了。每家餐厅都装饰得别具特色,墨西哥风格的会有穿着绿白红三色大圆裙的女侍在门口招徕顾客,意大利餐厅就用紧邻河岸的彩色拼花圆桌和美丽的餐具来吸引游人,一家叫“湘苑”的中国餐厅更是在门口挂起了无数展大红灯笼,窗内依稀的烛光让人想起了五百年前的梦幻秦淮。不过圣安东尼奥的秦淮河演奏的却是标准的墨西哥音乐。各家餐厅都有盛装打扮的墨西哥乐队巡回表演,有清一色的男子乐队,也有清一色的女子乐队,一般是5到6个人,大提琴,小提琴,萨克斯,吉他,单簧什么都有,而且个个都能唱。他们会走到在河边用餐的游客旁问需不需要音乐助兴,价格并不贵,什么曲子都会,即使不要,他们也都笑盈盈的离开。个人认为这么周到的服务最适合情侣周年纪念或者求婚啦!

         我和同行的女生都是酷爱美食之人,自然哪家都不舍得放过,仔细研究放在门口的菜单;可惜是越看越迷惑,因为哪家的食谱都写得那么诱人,真是不知道该到哪大快哚颐。我们总共在River Walk吃了三次饭:15号晚上最终决定还是吃墨西哥餐。本来的克萨斯州以前就是墨西哥的领土,经过了Alamo战役独立出来后也还是保留了墨西哥的风格,建筑,美食,服饰。我们在Original Mexican (原味墨西哥餐厅) 点了最具特色的Nachos, Fajita和Enchilada。Nachos是类似炸薯片的一种开胃前盘,不同的是薯片上要浇上融化的奶酪和烤的烂熟的红豆,有的还要加上剁碎的烤鸡肉或牛肉,越吃越香。Fajita很有些中国铁板牛柳的味道,也是一个黑色的铁盘,吱吱冒着热气的端上来,里面有烤的外焦里嫩的牛肉或鸡肉,配上蔬菜沙拉,墨西哥炒饭,招牌烤红豆和酸奶油。吃的时候先拿一张类似于中国的荷叶饼的小圆面饼,把所有的东西都放进去卷起来,大咬一口,M, M, yummy (好吃)~~~. Enchilada是在美国非常流行的正规墨西哥菜,尤其是对于奶酪爱好者来说。一般的中国人可能会不太习惯奶酪的浓烈味道,我也是在美国生活了两三年后才开始爱上这种超级催肥厚重美味的。Enchilada的配菜和Fajita差不多,不同的是除了沙拉,各种东西都已经卷好放在小面饼里,之后小面饼上被浇上厚厚的融化了的奶酪,浓香四溢,美味异常。我们三个人是吃了个沟满壕平还剩了不少。没办法,这的盘子都超大!酒点了Margarita (马格利特,一种鸡尾酒)。这里Margarita都是超大杯,最大的有60盎司,大概有一斤半牛奶那么多,估计全喝完了肯定能一头载倒到河里变洛神!我不要做洛神,我的小鱼Gene还在新奥尔良朋友家里等着我回去呢,所以我只点了个16盎司的桃子味道margarita小酌一番。大卫要了当地的啤酒:Lone Star (孤星),看来德克萨斯人时刻不忘自己的孤星共和国啊!

      吃饱喝足我们沿河前行,坐上了水上游船。时间刚好是下午6点左右,马上就要日落,温柔的阳光透过河岸边层层的树荫照上船来,两岸歌舞升平,那滋味真是神仙也难求!

        16号本来打算起个大早好好利用时间来弥补昨天多耗在路上的工夫,可惜闹钟没响,只好起来以后直接去吃中饭了。River Walk虽然在地图上看着挺长,可在河上的街道走起来却没多远:街道都是四平八达的不象自然形成的河道那么蜿蜒曲折。我们先走路去Alamo参观了一翻。这场200年前的著名战役在美国人心中就跟甲午海战一样壮烈神圣,歌曲诗词电影都在不停的传诵。Alamo原来是一座教堂,在德克萨斯州对抗墨西哥独裁者Santa Anna的战争中,32位勇士和近200名无名英雄退守于此和Santa Anna的大军对抗了13天,直到1836年3月6日寡不敌众,Alamo被攻陷,32位英雄全部阵亡。这场战役代表了德克萨斯人民顽强不屈争取自由的决心,更是美国英雄主义的实证。不过实话实说,对于我们三位传承5000年文明史,膜拜过无数古老战争的中国人来说,200年前的Alamo实在无法引起强烈的共鸣。尊敬是肯定的,而且十分感叹任何人都不用买门票来参观这么著名的文化遗址和博物馆,但我们只在Alamo逗留了40分钟左右就心不在焉的要深入River Walk去吃午饭了。

        Alamo就在River Walk边Hyatt (凯悦)酒店的对面。穿过Hyatt豪华的喷泉和一直通到酒店大堂的小桥流水,我们又回到了香气四溢的River Walk。这回不用挑来挑去了,我们直接来到了我上次来圣安东尼奥时超级称赞的County Line BBQ(乡村线烧烤)餐 馆。吃烤肉不用顾及形象,我们女生也都奋臂出袖,三个人风卷残云吃光了开胃蘑菇,烤猪排,牛排,沙拉,薯条和蒜容土豆泥。我们一致认为这顿真是吃的爽!吃饱了,River Walk也逛的差不多了,著名的5星级La Mansion酒店前Jennifer Lopez(珍尼佛.洛佩兹,美国著名影星)拍电影坐过的石拱桥上也留下了我们的倩影,下一步当然是去购物了!

La Mansion酒店

 

         虽说River Walk附近有一家超级大mall(购物中心),什么名牌应有尽有,但是更对我们这些穷学生胃口的却是在美国历史最悠久的墨西哥市场:Market Square (市场广场)。地方虽然不大,布局有点象批发市场,但是里面确实好店连连—-如果你也象我一样喜欢特色手工艺品。墨西哥风格的彩色大圆帽,木制雕塑,皮具马鞍马鞭马靴牛仔帽,不同型号的水牛角,各种银饰珠宝,墨西哥服装,色彩鲜艳的羊毛披肩挂毯,彩漆陶罐瓷器,缀满了各色珠子的女式背包,儿童玩具……看的我目不暇接,淹没在色彩的汪洋里。同学买了一对打磨精细的银耳环,大卫淘到了一顶黑色的超帅牛仔帽;我看上了一件极美的彩色条纹披肩,可惜太贵了。Market Square里除了购物,还有一家历史悠久的点心店加餐厅。买点心的人慕名而来要拿号排队。点心部的天花板挂满了红红绿绿的墨西哥剪纸和纸糊的彩色星星,餐厅墙上装饰着店主家的无数老照片。所有的女侍应都穿着红白绿相间的墨西哥泡泡袖上衣和大圆摆长裙,男的都是黑色镶金边的短款圆摆小夹克,白色高领衬衫和同样的黑色镶金紧腿裤,再加上黑色皮靴,真是帅呆了!

墨西哥点心店

 

        说到Market Square就不能不提提另一个类似的购物胜地:La Villita。西班牙语的意思是小村庄。紧邻圣安东尼奥河 ,这里是18世纪初的圣安东尼奥原址,现在被重新修复,有超过25位以上的艺术家和手工艺匠人在这里展示出售他们的作品。在这里你可以找到纯手工的墨西哥风格服装,披肩,各式矿石化石展览和制品,各种墨西哥手工艺品,玻璃艺术品,我们甚至花了10分钱的门票参观一个吹玻璃的老艺人制作玻璃旋转木马。在这里我终于找到了心爱的纪念品:一串紫色的石头切片风铃,回家后我可以把它挂在我美丽的前廊听新奥尔良秋风的叮咚。La Villita直通River Walk的出口正对着一个小型水上露天剧院,这就是Sandra Bullock(珊德拉.布鲁克)在电影“Miss Congeniality (选美小姐)”里面才艺表演的舞台啦!舞台左边是红顶白墙的墨西哥风格建筑,用作演员休息化妆室;再左边是又一道拱桥,连接到河对岸的观众席。演出的时候演员观众都是露天的,观众席也没有椅子,只有一层层象梯田一样的宽大石阶,石阶边缘是毛茸茸的草坪。观众就坐在这软软的草坪石阶上沐浴着和风享受表演。唉!这样惬意的日子真是神仙都不换啊!

水上露天剧院

 

      晚饭三个人都有吃不动的感觉:这两顿实在是吃得太好太多了!最后决定去吃稍微清淡的意大利菜。随便在River Walk找了一家餐厅,叫Italia,店面在二楼,从小阳台上俯视灯红酒绿的River Walk ,听着墨西哥乐队的悠扬歌声,真是舒服浪漫极了。菜点了最普通的Artichoke dip, Beef Lasagna和Eggplant Parmesan。Artichoke是形状类似佛手的一种蔬菜,在西式菜点中一般被煮熟后捣碎,搀入其它调味料成为沾酱,用面包或饼沾着吃。Lasagna是意大利面的一种。通常做法是烤制,将波浪状的大片意大利面一层层的铺到烤盘里,中间以蔬菜,肉或火腿和西红柿酱,奶酪粘结,是非常经典的意大利面做法。我们要的就是面中间放牛肉的这种。Eggplant Parmesan 是把茄子切圆片,用面包碎屑裹制后先炸,然后用番茄酱和奶酪连接两到三片,统一在烤箱里烤制。这家的蘸橄榄油面包和Artichoke dip尤其美味,其他的菜色味道一般,甜点做的不好。不过也难怪,跑到吃墨西哥菜的地方来吃意大利菜,难免会失望。不过给我们倒水的小服务生倒是个拉丁小帅哥,我们两个女生拉着他合照了一张照片,弄的腼腆的他脸红了半天。

      晚上回到酒店确定伊万飓风并没有直接袭击新奥尔良,而是根据预测转向了阿拉巴马州,我们都舒了口气。给朋友打了个电话得知新奥尔良除了刮了点风,连一滴雨都没下,而且阳光灿烂的天气好的不得了!他一早上起来看到出太阳了吓了一大跳,还以为身处风眼里了!所以这次是上帝保佑,化险为夷!不过阿拉巴马州就比较的不走运了,损失比较惨重。好在没有城市象新奥尔良一样是个“海下”城,所以即使淹水也不会那么严重。

     17号礼拜五回来的路上比较顺利,没有堵车,不过比国庆节我们从休斯敦回来的车流还是多了至少一倍。在休斯敦的中国城老四川吃了川菜,可惜不如上次来做的地道。大卫在附近的一个中国超市里扫荡了所有的馒头,这下我们9月就有好吃的了!这是我们在美国第一次逃难,还比较成功,选对了方向,同时游览了圣安东尼奥这个美丽的小城。其实圣安东尼奥还有很多地方我们没有时间去,比如King Williams community (威廉姆斯国王小区), 马桶博物馆,美国最大的海洋馆等。希望下次我们的美国威尼斯之旅不再是逃难!

我的蜜月旅行(佛罗里达州之旅)  

艾小柯

2004年一月 

   

七、后记  

 

在迈阿密港口下船后是上午10点,我和大伟立刻驾车经过14小时的长途跋涉终于回到了新奥尔良我们甜蜜的家。这次旅行总共耗时11天,花费约2000美元。其中$1200用于购买整个旅行计划,包括住宿费和两个人的船票。因为是开车,油费总共100块(当时油价还没太上涨),后来根据我们和旅行社的协议油钱他们全额退还。我和大伟认为整个行程还是非常经济合理的,最重要的是我们度过了一个完美的蜜月。

我的蜜月旅行(佛罗里达州之旅)
 

艾小柯

2004年一月

 

六,豪华游轮行

 

Carnival 公司是一家注册在巴哈马的豪华游轮公司,长年提供航行于迦勒比海,墨西哥和阿拉斯加的游船业务。迷幻号这次航行的目的地是Key West和墨西哥Cozumel岛, 整个行程为期四天三夜。

迷幻号游轮

出发前在迈阿密港并排停靠的imagination号游轮,两船布局相同

第一天

   

第一天其实应该算作半天,因为我们是在中午登船。当看到巨大的美丽迷幻号停泊在迈阿密港口的时候,我脑子里立刻浮现出了电影泰坦尼克号开始游客登船的场景,几乎是一模一样,除了游客们穿的衣服不同之外。当然,现代社会应该有现代化的服务。因为船要驶出美国领土,所以要先过海关。每位游客都要把自己的护照交给海关由他们统一保管,这样可以保证游客的返回。对于我们这种在美国的非永久居民,这样的政策是最合适不过了:即消除了签证的烦恼,又保证了在小小的出国后百分百能回到美国。交完护照,大家排队照相并领取身份卡,这张卡也是每个人在这次游船旅行中的“一卡通”:在船上所有的服务都可以用这张卡来刷,下船的时候再一起结账。在排完了所有的队,经过了所有必要的程序之后,我和大伟终于登上了迷幻号。 第一天其实应该算作半天,因为我们是在中午登船。当看到巨大的美丽迷幻号停泊在迈阿密港口的时候,我脑子里立刻浮现出了电影泰坦尼克号开始游客登船的场景,几乎是一模一样,除了游客们穿的衣服不同之外。当然,现代社会应该有现代化的服务。因为船要驶出美国领土,所以要先过海关。每位游客都要把自己的护照交给海关由他们统一保管,这样可以保证游客的返回。对于我们这种在美国的非永久居民,这样的政策是最合适不过了:即消除了签证的烦恼,又保证了在小小的出国后百分百能回到美国。交完护照,大家排队照相并领取身份卡,这张卡也是每个人在这次游船旅行中的“一卡通”:在船上所有的服务都可以用这张卡来刷,下船的时候再一起结账。在排完了所有的队,经过了所有必要的程序之后,我和大伟终于登上了迷幻号。 第一天其实应该算作半天,因为我们是在中午登船。当看到巨大的美丽迷幻号停泊在迈阿密港口的时候,我脑子里立刻浮现出了电影泰坦尼克号开始游客登船的场景,几乎是一模一样,除了游客们穿的衣服不同之外。当然,现代社会应该有现代化的服务。因为船要驶出美国领土,所以要先过海关。每位游客都要把自己的护照交给海关由他们统一保管,这样可以保证游客的返回。对于我们这种在美国的非永久居民,这样的政策是最合适不过了:即消除了签证的烦恼,又保证了在小小的出国后百分百能回到美国。交完护照,大家排队照相并领取身份卡,这张卡也是每个人在这次游船旅行中的“一卡通”:在船上所有的服务都可以用这张卡来刷,下船的时候再一起结账。在排完了所有的队,经过了所有必要的程序之后,我和大伟终于登上了迷幻号。

我们的房间是不带窗户的经济舱,但是位置比较靠上层,所以晃动相对较小,性价比还是很高的。其实我是非常不推荐游轮的带窗户的房间的,因为窗户并不能够打开,只是可以透过窗户看到大海。不过因为旅行过程中的大部分时间不是在船上活动,就是在目的地游览,所以花钱买这样一个窗户还是比较不划算的。房间很象一般酒店的标准间,不过两张床就小了一点,为了节省空间嘛。床是可以移动的,情侣完全可以自己把床拼在一起。整个船舱非常干净豪华,感觉十分舒服。

我和大伟放好了东西以后就上到甲板上面欣赏迈阿密港口的景色,同时吃我们在迷幻号上的第一餐饭。这样的豪华游轮行的船票里已经包括了旅行中所有食物的价格,只有酒精饮料需要自己付费。餐厅主要有两个:一个是全天24小时开放的休闲自助餐厅,游客可着任何服装进餐;另一个是分配好的正式进餐餐厅,每人都有一个固定的座位,从菜单点菜,有身着礼服的侍者服务。一般说来正式餐厅要求着正装,但是近年来为了吸引游客,虽然会事先提醒游客着装规则,但是基本上是任何服装都可以的。游客可以随便选择去哪个餐厅用餐,甚至对于那些喜欢在自己的房间里进餐的游客,客房服务也是24小时的,可是随时打电话叫侍者从餐厅把自己想吃的东西送到房间门口。我和大伟都穿着在海滩散步的休闲衣服,所以第一餐自助就好了。大部分食物基本上是美国风格,各种各样的沙拉(凉拌菜)和烤鸡,烤牛排,各式比萨饼,还有各种甜点。我和大伟饱食了一顿之后,每人手握一个卷筒冰激凌,雄赳赳气昂昂的回到甲板上照相和看别人在游泳池边玩游戏。

这个迷幻号还真是十分巨大。 最上面的一层是一个排球场和环形跑道,接下来一层是带两个游泳池的甲板。从甲板层进入游轮的内部,有两层是公共空间,再下面就都是单独的小船舱了。这两层公共空间就是一个大型的超级娱乐场:商店,美容院,健身房,赌场,餐厅,剧场,图书馆,棋牌室,舞厅,网吧,酒吧,拍卖厅,电子游戏厅,应有尽有。我和大伟一路逛下来,啧啧感叹,难怪有钱人都喜欢坐游轮出海,原来在陆地上能玩到的在这样的船上一样不差,而且更加豪华!

开船前的最后一项活动是安全逃生演习。我是平生第一次看到这么多形形色色的美国人乖乖的排队服从指挥认认真真的演习如何安全逃生。这也让我和大伟不得不佩服美国人的安全意识。我们两个也同样入乡随俗,跟着大家穿着红色的救生衣穿过一道道的逃生门演习了一回。

下午两点钟,迷幻号终于驶出了迈阿密港口。 我们也学着船上的其他游客向岸上的人挥手告别。 海风徐徐,带着我们开始向迷人的加勒比海进发。

开了船,可不代表游客们除了等待和在船上闲逛之外就没有别的事情可做。一上船每位游客就领到了一张船上每天的活动安排,几乎每个小时都有几个活动在同时进行,游客可以有选择的参加。第一天下午主要是在游泳池边举行的室外活动,比如跳水和跳舞比赛什么的。我和大伟因为前两天的行程安排很满,所以就不打算参加了,而是回到船舱美美的睡了一个下午觉。醒来后看了会舱内电视播放的电影“加勒比海盗”后出去逛了逛就又到了吃晚饭的时间。我们的正餐被安排在8点,这一次我可要好好感受一下这豪华的餐厅服务了。

我们的侍者很巧是个华人,来自北京。跟我们坐一张桌子的是一对老年兄妹,来自德克萨斯州。 老头以前是海军军官,这次是专门来船上赌博度假的;妹妹孀居后受哥哥邀请,和我们一样是第一次乘坐豪华游轮。菜单是法国式的,分头盘,凉菜,汤,正餐和甜点五项,每项有三到四种选择。因为餐费已经包括在船票里了,喜欢吃的游客可以随便点,每项都可以选很多种,只要你吃得了。我和大伟都点了侍者推荐的阿拉斯加雪鱼,味道真是十分鲜美。爱吃甜食的我又加要了意大利提拉米苏蛋糕,至于我的减肥大业,恩…还是等下了船再考虑吧。

第二天

船一大早到达了佛罗里达州的最南端,同时也是全美国的最南端,Key West。 佛罗里达州人把南部的星罗密布的小岛称作“keys”,因为它们好象碎片一样散落在地图上。这个Key West就是这些岛中最靠南和西的一个,也是一号沿海公路的尽头。整个岛程狭长形状,总共只有15.4平方公里。我们早上7点到达,预计下午一点离开。因为时间比较短暂,而小岛又非常小,所以我和大伟打算不参加旅行团,而是自己徒步探索。

当敞篷小火车把我们带到Key West市中心的公车站时,一派热带风情就迎面袭来。虽然时间很早,但是街上的游人已经是熙熙攘攘。主要街道两旁布满了各种各样的纪念品和热带饰品商店。我买了一条红色的裹裙,既可以系在腰上作裙子,又可以挽个环套在脖子上变成连衣裙,在阳光下十分醒目!同时趁着买裙子的方便,我赶紧向当地人打听哪里的海滩是最好,当地人最喜欢去的,果然得到了详细的地址和行进方案。 下一步我们就是要向岛南部的公园进发了。

一路上我们经过了著名作家海明威的故居和一个小小的“黄金”海滩。我和大伟都不太喜欢这个海滩,因为沙滩的沙太细,细到变成了土。走在海滩上就好像走在湿泥里,非常不爽。小海滩的不远处就是美国最南端的标志,这里距离古巴只有90英里。要是在中国,这么重要和有纪念意义的标志怎么样也要是块有文人墨客题字作诗的漂亮石头,要不然就是一座丰碑什么的;没想到的是这个标志的样子竟然超级的土,好像一个被油漆成彩色的秤砣,一点诗情画意都没有。不过土归土,这么有特色的标志,我和大伟还是乖乖的每人都和它合影留念。

照完了像,接着找我们要去的公园里的秘密海滩。我们走着走着发现怎么走到居民区里来了, 而且这些居民区都十分的有中国郊区特色:院子里晒衣绳上挂满了衣服,地上无数只跑来跑去的鸡。连鸡的社会体系都和中国的差不多:都是一只公鸡带领无数母鸡和小鸡。这可有意思了!想想看一路上我们还真是看到了不少自由活动的鸡,甚至还有一家专门经营鸡图案商品的商店,店里还有几个笼子,也放着鸡。难道鸡对于Key West有什么特殊的含义? 嘿,你别说,这次我还真猜对了!回来后听一个在Key West长大的朋友讲,原来这些鸡被当地人称为“吉普赛鸡”,因为它们象吉普赛人一样到处流浪。 以前Key West上人烟稀少,后来岛被开发了,野生鸡的天敌减少,但是长期居住在岛上的人又不是很多,更多的是短期游客,所以鸡的数量急剧增加,它们逐渐学会了和人共同在城市里生活,已经成为了Key West一个需要解决的社会问题。为此,Key West市长专门在电视上做过一期节目谈吉普赛鸡的问题,还鼓励各地的美国人领养这里的鸡,连主持人也逃不过,被迫收下市长强行赠送的两只鸡呢!

四处游荡的吉普赛鸡

 

看完了鸡,发现我们确实走错路了。不过有一句话叫因祸得福,结果在往回走的路上被我们发现了一个坐水上滑翔的地方。我和大伟一看时间还来得及,于是当机立断决定先去水上滑翔,然后再去海滩。导游车把我和大伟还有另一对情侣接到了港口,我们登上了一艘快艇。 小艇驶入海中央后,我们远远的还能看到美丽的迷幻号。接着是帅哥导游给大家介绍注意事项。滑翔者先要穿上小艇提供的救生衣,然后半坐在由尼龙带做成的类似软秋千的东西上面,手扶和座位相连的金属杆。 金属杆上有两个吊环,吊着一个巨大的开放的降落伞。 当滑翔者准备好了以后,小艇就会加快速度行驶,这时导游就要放开连着整个装备的缆绳,把滑翔者象放风筝一样的放出去。 看别人做好象很简单,不过轮到自己的时候心里还真挺害怕的,千万不要出什么差错把我放到海里去成为人体滑板。但是我们升上天空的那一瞬间实在是太美妙了。 风从下面吹上来,整个Key West小岛的景色尽收眼底。碧绿的海面白帆点点,偶尔有快艇在海面划出短短的白线。 墨绿色的小岛边停满了白色的美丽帆船,好像给岛镶了一道银边。天空蓝极了,我终于体会到一只飞鸟的感觉了!在天空飞翔了大概有5分钟后,导游开始收缆绳了。我们慢慢靠近小艇,快到的时候先降落到海面,小腿都进到了海里,之后我们又跳升回去一点,最后降落到艇上。导游说这个过程叫蜻蜓点水,只是海水有些微凉。 回去的路上我看着照片沾沾自喜的说我终于也飞了一把,结果大伟严重打击我说被当成人肉风筝放了一回还美呢!不过我对他的说法嗤之以鼻,我知道他心里肯定也挺骄傲的,就是不好意思说罢了。

下了船,好心的导游答应载我们到我们要找的公园,结果竟然就在迷幻号停泊的地方不远,其实走路也就最多20分钟。 海滩果然比先前看到的泥巴滩好很多,但是我觉得还是比迈阿密海滩差远了。水虽然非常清澈,但是海滩上石头太多,走起来有些搁脚。再加上刚才蜻蜓点水体会了一下水温,觉得现在这里还真不是游泳的好地方。于是我们在海滩上休息了一会就决定打道回府了。

回到船舱,发现床上竟然放着一只由毛巾叠成的狗,实在是超级可爱。原来这就是船上给我们每天提供的新毛巾,我都舍不得用。稍事休息后我和大伟决定去参加不消耗精力的艺术品拍卖会。我们其实也就是去凑热闹,看看大家究竟是怎么竞拍艺术品的,同时也为了拍卖会提供的免费香槟。当天下午拍卖的大多是光线艺术家Thomas Kincaid的油画复制作品,我和大伟都非常喜欢,也学着竞拍了几幅,可惜后来的成交价远非我们可以接受的限度。

 这一天是船长和游客共进晚餐的日子,船上提供了龙虾大餐。大伟穿上了正装衬衫,还打了领带,十分英俊;我也穿上了心爱的红色拽地晚礼服,两个人手挽手去享受大餐。我们同餐桌的老兄妹俩也都盛装出席,他们不断跨我们两个是漂亮的一对儿,结果美得我多吃了好多甜点。晚上剧院表演百老汇风格的音乐剧,故事情节是一个外乡青年来到纽约百老汇去看音乐剧,于是他的美貌的出租车女司机就带着他轮流观看,结果观众们就得以欣赏到百老汇各个时期的热播剧的著名片断,如“西贡小姐”,“歌剧魅影”,“芝加哥”等,看到最后青年爱上了女司机,一派大团圆结局。表演男青年的是一位黑人歌手,他唱的非常非常投入,音色也十分浑厚,没想到我们船上的表演竟然这么专业。看完了音乐剧,我和大伟上到甲板上去赏月。我依偎在大伟的怀中,海风轻轻吹动了我长长的裙裾,月亮真的好美。

第三天

这一天的目的地,墨西哥的Cozumel岛是整个旅行的高潮。迷幻号上午10点进入港口,我和大伟匆匆吃过早餐下船。刚从港口出来,湛蓝色的海水就已经清澈见底了,甚至比学校健身房游泳池的水都请,但这可是在港口啊!我们参加了一个吉普车旅游团, 每四个人驾驶一辆敞篷吉普车。我和大伟谁都不会驾驶手动档车,结果我们竟很幸运的和导游同坐一辆车。导游是个年青的墨西哥小伙子,长的还挺帅。一队人马浩浩荡荡的沿着窄窄的公路来到了岛的南端,海风习习,阳光灿烂,一路上两旁的树木郁郁葱葱,我们不断地向路上骑着小摩托车的行人挥手问好,心情简直好极了。

导游先带我们去参观岛上的玛亚文化遗址。玛亚文化是距今3000年左右的古印加文化,具有自己的语言,文字,建筑和发展健全的社会体系。玛亚人以农业和商业为主,在西班牙殖民者进入南美后,玛亚文化渐渐和基督教文化融合。现在存留下来的玛亚居民主要在瓜地马拉和墨西哥的小部分。我们看到的是一座非常小的祭祀用教堂。这个教堂根今天的教堂有着根本的区别,本身非常矮小,我觉得非得用爬才能进去,好像一个地上洞穴。在玛亚文化里,洞穴是非常神圣的神地,通常被用作祭祀的教堂和举行祭神典礼的地点。导游对这个小小的祭祀教堂非常恭敬,说历史上只有男人才能进入这样的神地膜拜。

离开了玛亚文化遗址,我们又驾吉普车参观了岛上的鄂鱼保护中心。 在中心的小茅草房里我换上了比基尼和新买的红色裹裙,因为接下来我们就要去美丽的加勒比海潜水了。在到达海滩之前,导游先带我们来到了岛上的白色灯塔前面,说要看看Cozumel岛的全貌。我和大伟拾级而上,足足登了5分钟后才绕到塔顶,眼前突然豁然开朗。一望无际的海水蓝得沁人心脾,白色的浪花一波接一波的冲到和浪花一样洁白的海滩之上,再往里是大片的绿色低矮灌木,一条细细的白色土路分开灌木丛伸向远方,岛的中部是刚才我们看到的深色河谷,即鳄鱼保护中心。迈阿密的海水虽然已经很蓝,但是跟加勒比的海水比起来就逊色太多。这里的蓝是澄澈的蓝,蓝得那么通透,那么晶莹,蓝得让天空都失去了颜色,蓝得让人直想落泪。 我简直无法相信世界上竟然有这么美丽的海水,美的那么不真实,让人担心这只是一个太过美妙的梦,随时都会醒过来。我和大伟都看呆了,两个人久久说不出话来,只是紧紧地挽着手,不敢惊动这梦幻般的一刻。天堂大概就应该是这个样子的吧!

岛上灯塔

美丽的加勒比海

恋恋不舍的离开灯塔之后,我们一行人穿越了大片森林来到了我一直期待的完美的白沙滩!整个沙滩开发得非常少,只有我们旅游团的这20几个人。Cozumel的白沙是完全意义的白,质地如白糖,配着像蓝水晶一样通透的海水,以前只在图片上看到过的天堂终于在这里成为了现实。我和大伟领了snorkel(漂浮潜水)的用具,穿上了脚蹼和救生衣,在导游的带领下去探索加勒比海的秘密。Cozumel有30多个活珊瑚礁,是世界上为数不多的保留有活珊瑚礁的地方之一。墨西哥政府对珊瑚礁的保护意识非常强,导游反复强调游人一定不要触碰珊瑚礁,因为这些耗时万年才形成的珊瑚礁非常脆弱,被触碰到就会死亡。我们要去的这个活珊瑚礁距海滩有大概300码,需要游过三个浮标才能到达。每个浮标都是一个一米见方的塑料泡沫平台,如果有人体力不支可以上去休息,然后会有小皮划艇来接回岸边。潜水时要一边踩水前进一边保持身体的水平,这样才能保持漂浮状态。还不能潜得太深,否则伸出水面的呼吸管就要进水了。我和大伟都是第一次潜水,动作缓慢,被落在最后。好在我们的帅哥导游比较喜欢我们两个,一直跟在附近指导我们正确动作。等我们终于到达目的地,看到了各种各样美丽的热带鱼时,我简直是手舞足蹈,拼命把头探下去,结果一不小心就喝了一口海水。眼前黑黄条纹的,透明宝石蓝的,红色的,银色的…… 各种各样的热带鱼群在游动。我仿佛置身于一个巨大的水族馆之中,形形色色的鱼儿们就在我的手边。我伸手去摸,这些绚丽的加勒比珍宝们一闪身就移开了,但是又不走远,就徘徊在我身旁,让我不停的感叹,激动,手里27张的水下照相机在几分钟内就用完了。有很多意外的惊喜,比如大龙虾,海龟,Sting Ray(不知道中文名字)等等都没来得及照下来!可爱的导游还从海底捞上来一个巨大的海螺送给我们作纪念!在游回去的路上我看到了无数巨大的海螺和贝壳,只可惜我不会潜水,这些宝贝近在咫尺却又遥不可及。我和大伟在海里流连忘返,没了时间,最后一个回到岸上,太阳都已经开始落山了。橘黄色的夕阳温柔的把余辉洒向大海,洁白的沙滩被染成了金黄,如果能够加上一个框,这就是一副绝美的印象派油画了。不知道在神奇大自然的画笔下,我们这两个远道而来的中国人会不会被变成画中人。

 

神奇的海底世界

海底寻宝

回船的路上吉普车队上了土路,在热带丛林里颠簸。导游告诉我们要防备猴子,因为它们最喜欢跳上吉普车找东西,可惜天色已晚我们没能经历。天空中的月亮又大又圆,美丽的迷幻号在港口里静静的泊着。港口旁边的市场商店里放着欢快的墨西哥民族音乐,我和老公挑选了一个太阳神的土陶制品留作纪念。回到船舱,床上坐着一只毛巾小象。我换上了最喜欢的带有长穗子的黑色裙子和老公去餐厅吃墨西哥大餐,吃到最后全餐厅的人都翩翩起舞,巨大的顶着水果的墨西哥大圆帽团团转动。音乐醉了,海醉了,岛醉了,我也醉倒在这迷人的气氛里,久久不愿醒来。

第四天

 

最不被期待的最后一天还是到来了,这一天其实也只有小半天。船上在这一天里安排了很多集体活动,剧院的表演也变成了游客报名上台展示才华的特别节目。四天真是太短了,还有那么多的船上活动我们都没来得及参加。但是再美的梦也总有醒来的一天,就让我怀拥美梦期待下一次的旅行吧!

我的蜜月旅行(佛罗里达州之旅)

2004年一月

 

五,迈阿密

 

结束了Ft. Lauderdale之旅,我们早早的沿着Florida的东海岸开下来,按照地图指引的方向到达了著名的迈阿密南部海滩。一路看来还是数Miami的海滩最美。这个南部海滩又名健美海滩,纯白的沙滩十分细腻,碧蓝的海水也非常清澈。一年四季都有人在这个沙滩上锻炼身体,尤其是以充斥着赤裸上身锻炼肌肉的美男而著称,所以得名健美海滩。当然,有美男的地方自然也少不了美女,而且是只着比基尼下装的半裸美女。所以喜欢享受视觉大餐的朋友可一定不要错过这个健美海滩哦!迈阿密距离Ft. Lauderdale只有四十分钟的车程,所以海水的温度几乎一样:即使在一月也比较温暖。海滩对面穿过窄窄的一号公路是各式各样的酒店,餐厅和纪念品店。很多穿着沙滩短裤的人依着黑色雕花铁栏的阳台在阳光下悠闲的一边抽着烟,一边欣赏过往的人群。我和大伟手牵手沿着这不长的海滩慢慢散了个步,一路上的海风都是那么温柔。真希望能多有时间来细细品味迈阿密的豪华和闲适,但是我们将要乘坐的Carnival公司的Fascination(迷幻)号游轮已经在等待我们登船开始为期4天的迦勒比海之行了。

我的蜜月旅行(佛罗里达州之旅)
 

艾小柯

2004年一月

四,Ft. Lauderdale

接下来的三天我和大伟在美丽浪漫的Ft. Lauderdale度过。Ft. Lauderdale是继1960年拍摄的电影“Where the boys are”后迅速崛起的旅游城市,每年都有无数疯狂的青少年来这里度春假。后来当地政府颁布了一系列法律禁止过分的不检点行为,所以1980之后这里就不再是青少年们的春假首选地了。Ft. Lauderdale选择发展成为美国的船舶之都,港口里停泊着无数美丽的游船。世界排名前20的游船那里泊着18艘。我们那天就看到了Toyota一艘价值68million的豪华游船。

Fort Lauderdale 游船随处可见

中间就是Toyota价值六千八百万美金的超豪华游船

对于游人来说,Ft. Lauderdale分为两部分:海滩和市中心。市中心主要是购物圣地。沿着著名的Las Olas大道缓缓前行,两边布满了各式餐厅,咖啡馆,时尚小店和艺术画廊。对于喜爱博物馆的游客,这条路上有艺术博物馆和科学发现博物馆等待着你去探索。我和大伟选择的是科学发现博物馆。我们不知道怎么竟然从后门进去了,进去后还在奇怪为什么这个博物馆不需要门票,结果走的时候才发现进错了门,真是不好意思之极。博物馆里有各种各样神奇的动物展示,我们很幸运的碰到了工作人员向小朋友讲解大蟒蛇,我们两个好不容易等到最后和大蟒蛇亲密接触,还合了影。这条蟒蛇温柔之极,象极了小甜甜布莱尼在演唱会上围在脖子上的那条,可惜我没有同样的胆量也试一把。离Las Olas大道不远就是穿过城市的New River。河两岸布满了亿万豪宅,住在河边的人家每家都有船位,开船就可以直接沿河出海。河上的主要交通工具是水上公车(water bus),能够一路搭载到海滩。公车司机同时也是导游,一路上不断介绍两岸的美丽豪宅,豪宅的主人很多都是耳熟能详的大公司总裁或者演艺界人士。

新河岸边的公寓楼

 

新河上的豪宅

下了船(水上公车),穿过窄窄的一号公路就是海滩了。大伟怕我走丢,于是就在我外衣里的比基尼上拴上了一个心型的氢气球,气球上写着“I love you”。我们买冰激凌的时候卖冰激凌的小贩微笑着对我说“有人爱你呢,真好!”沿着海滩是白色的细沙,海水是浅绿色的。一月的天气海水还有些微凉,游泳的人不多。公路对面是一家挨一家的酒吧,餐厅和纪念品店,展示着这片海滩曾经的繁华。

晚上的节目是乘坐Ft. Lauderdale 著名的Jungle Queen(丛林皇后)游船。上了船,我们很幸运的被分到了靠船舷的位置。一路上沿着New River缓缓前行,两岸的百万豪宅都亮着灿烂的灯火,依稀可以看到那些大房子里闪烁的美丽圣诞树。导游一边向我们介绍两岸的豪宅和它们主人的显赫身家,一边时不时的讲两个笑话,气氛 轻松而愉快。沿着新河有很多桥,由于Ft. Lauderdale是船舶之都,所有的桥都是设计成可升起的以过船。到达第一座桥等待桥面升起的时候,导游教我们向约翰森先生(Mr. Johnson)问好,据说他是该桥的专职管理员。可是好笑的是以后每到一座桥,我们不是向约翰森先生问好,就是向约翰森太太或者小姐问好,导游解释说约翰森先生的全家都在管里不同的桥,有的是兄弟管,有的是太太,有的是儿子,有的是女儿。看着导游笑眯眯的煞有介事的解释,我们也不知道究竟是真是假,反正全船人每次都买力的大声问好,实在是非常搞笑。旅行的目的地是新河上游的一个小岛,岛上是一家烧烤餐厅。因为船费里面已经包括了晚饭餐费,所以就象自助餐一样可以无限量享用。餐厅里面是一排一排的超长木桌,桌两边各摆一条长凳。吃饭是大家一起坐在长凳上,好象修道院的道友一样共同进餐。服务人员先端来了一盘盘的水煮虾配烧烤酱,然后是烤猪排和牛排。配菜有蔬菜沙拉,拌小圆白菜(coleslaw)和凉拌豆角。饭后竟然还提供了美味的巧克力蛋糕和冰激凌甜点。我们放开肚皮把海鲜吃了个够。这还不算结束,饭后在后院还有精彩的魔术和杂技表演等娱乐节目,非常好看。酒足饭饱的我们心满意足的回港,没想到在路上遇到了一群疯狂的teenagers(十几岁的少年) ,也许是大学生,喝醉了酒,集体在岸边向船上的人一边疯喊一边moon flash(就是脱掉裤子把屁股撅起来给别人看)。 看来这个城市疯狂起来也可以和新奥尔良相媲美了。 

海鲜和烧烤大餐

几乎Ft. Lauderdale所有的旅游景点都集中在新河两岸,在我们看来基本上两天内就可以把大部分的地方玩个遍。所以最后一天我们决定去游览坐落在郊外的蝴蝶世界。这个蝴蝶世界集中了放养的各式蝴蝶,热带鸟类和植物,同时还有一个昆虫博物馆。 感受炫丽的蝴蝶停留在身上的那一刻真的非常美妙。

我的蜜月旅行(佛罗里达州之旅)

2004年一月 

 

三,冒险岛之旅

 

第二天睡足了觉,杀向Universal Studio。Universal Studio Florida是本来以好莱坞为基地的环球影视公司于1990年 在奥兰多投资兴建的大型主题乐园。乐园逐年扩建,目前分三部分。原本的Universal Studio和Disney MGM Studio乐园比较相似,都是模拟电影拍摄的场景,通过各种高科技手段和实地体验等方式带领游人体会奇妙的电影世界。不同的就很明显啦:各家电影不同,体验自然不同。迪斯尼是温情的卡通世界,投资的电影也大都是大人孩子都适合的正面电影;环球影业就不同了,有很多刺激惊悚科幻片,所以电影体验也更加刺激和惊险。比如射击外星人的星球大战之旅,影片“回到未来”之旅等等。, Island of Adventure (冒险岛)是近年来新建的集中了过山车,激流勇进等超级刺激的游乐项目的主题乐园,当然每个游乐项目也都基于一个电影主题。连接这两个主题乐园之间的一条大道被命名为Citi Walk(城市之路),走在路上随时都有可能突然遇到各种奇形怪状的电影人物,比如踩着高跷的巨人,骑摩托的蜘蛛侠等等。路两旁有各种名牌专卖,IMAX 3D电影院,大小不一档次不同的风味餐厅酒吧,包括著名的Emeril’s (Emeril是美国著名的厨师之一,发家于New Orleans, 拥有自己的电视节目和高级连锁餐厅)和Hard Rock Café 酒店。这个Hard Rock Café 更是建成好象古罗马竞技场一样规模庞大,坐落在一个三面环水的半岛之上,气派非凡。Hard Rock Café正对面的街道上还有一个隐蔽喷泉,有点象上海南京路上的喷泉,明明是平平的路面,确时不时突然喷出水来。孩子们都喜欢在那玩。一到了晚上,整个City Walk更成为不夜城,不同的乐队在各个酒吧现场演奏,倒有点New Orleans French Quarter的意味。我和大卫只有时间去一个乐园,既然已经去了MGM Studio,那这次就要选择疯狂刺激的冒险岛来好好体会一下啦!

Hard Rock Cafe

进了冒险岛的大门向左走,首先映入眼帘的是一座巨大无比的绿色过山车。这就是冒险岛的第一个挑战:Hulk Roller Coaster。Hulk是一个著名日本动画片里的人物,由于不小心吃了一个科学博士研究的化学产品,结果变成了可以变身的巨大绿色怪兽。这个绿色的过山车就是让大家来体会一下绿色怪人的巨大力量啦。排了几乎一个小时的队才终于轮到我们,但是等待是这么的值得:这大概是我所坐过的落差最大的过山车了。在转了两个360度的大圈后,整个车体从大约15米的高空以近乎垂直地面的角度高速俯冲到地,不对,是直到地下。原来过山车的轨道被设计成穿过一小截的沟槽,在通过的时候轨道两边有机器向人喷放干冰烟雾,真是“才出虎穴,又入狼窝“。心脏不好的游客,或者是孕妇,这个过山车是绝对的太过刺激,无法乘坐。估计大伟坐完后实在是太兴奋了,光顾感叹这个过山车的雄伟刺激,结果竟然忘记我们存包的时候他用的哪个手指头锁密码锁的了。我们俩这个着急啊!看来高科技也有不方便的时候,呵呵。

紧挨着Hulk的是一个自由落体塔。不过因为刚坐完世界上最伟大之一的超级过山车,加上这个塔是在是没有想象的那么高,才几秒就自由落体完毕了,非常令人失望。所以建议如果队排的长的话,这个塔完全可以省略了。接下来的几个景点是参观各种动画片里的英雄“纪念馆”,我们两个都觉得不是最好的选择,所以就省略了。

整个冒险岛的高潮直到我们发现了Ripsaw fall ride才到来。虽然看上去是传统的“激流勇进”,但是整个经历却和普通的“激流勇进”大相径庭。我们站队的时候发现有很多女孩都穿着比基尼,还有人穿着雨衣,虽然说Orlando的冬天非常温暖,但是穿游泳衣还是有点冷的。我们大惑不解的上了船,才发现结果是上了“贼船”!前面的部分跟普通的“激流勇进”基本一样,就是水道更长,两边的景色做的更加精致。但是当拐过两个弯之后我们的“噩梦”才正式开始。先是水道两边突然莫名其妙的出现了很多水枪,然后所有的水枪都开始向我们一船的人射击。我们这些可怜的瓮中鳖动也不能动,什么挡水的东西也没有,结果只能任凭被做成一船鸡汤。等终于经过了恐怖水枪阵,前面又出现了一座人行天桥,上面的人正笑眯眯的看我们这群人受苦,一个男孩甚至手拿矿泉水瓶把大卫从头淋到脚。不过大伟也无所谓啦,反正都已经全部湿透了。正在我们大呼小叫的喊救命的时候,最后的超级水中俯冲来了:整个船呼啸着冲向水里,在入水的一瞬间水面同时炸开了三朵超级水花,就象武侠片里大侠练功有成向水面发功,万水齐发的样子,同时配上爆炸音效,我自己当时都不知道是不是真的爆炸了。现在终于明白了为什么那么多人穿游泳衣了!我和大伟水淋淋的从船上下来,每个毛孔都是湿的,互相指着对方的狼狈样哈哈大笑。反正是成落汤鸡了,干脆好好享受这么滑稽的时刻吧。下了船就是我们刚才在船上看到的人行天桥,桥边聚集了一大堆人在看底下船上人的热闹。我们这两个落汤鸡当然也要找回平衡了,不过意想不到的是我们竟然发现了这个急流勇进的秘密:桥边有一大堆控制按纽,投入硬币后行人就可以控制下面水道两边的水枪,选择那些没有做准备的船充分灌溉一番!不愿意投硬币的干脆就从桥上直接倒水下去了。在我们旁边站着一个四十岁左右的女人,威风凛凛,手抓两大把硬币,左右开弓,已经灌溉了无数船只了。她一边投一边说:“这是我一年里最快乐的时光啦!”唉!Orlando真是个神奇的地方,多大的人在这也全都是孩子。 

紧挨着“急流勇进”的是著名的侏罗纪公园。整个公园设计成环岛漂流的方式,大家坐船去旅行。漂流过程中不断有形状各异的恐龙出现,场面非常壮观。最精彩的是漂流到最后,程序设计出错,结果船进了恐龙试验基地,在异常诡异的灯光下突然出现了一个瀑布,船整个从瀑布上掉了下去。这其实不太可怕;可怕的是就在人们尖叫着随船沿瀑布下落的过程中,面前突然出现了一只巨大无比的食肉霸王龙,张着血盆大口向游人大吼一声,我的魂都快被吓出来了!

天天渐渐黑了,不知不觉的都玩了一整天了。最后一个激动人心的项目是著名的双龙过山车。一般的过山车都是一辆车体,但是这个双龙却有两辆,一红一蓝,相向行驶。座位也和传统的过山车相反,人不是被包在车里,而是双脚悬挂在车外的被扣在车上。当红蓝两龙同时开动进入360度的环形轨道,两个轨道近乎相切时,车内的人会感觉几乎要踢到对面人的脚了,非常惊险。虽然知道设计人员是绝对不会让两个过山车里的人在那么高的速度下互相替到脚的,但是那一瞬间还是很担心,不知道姚明来了会怎么样。大伟是个疯狂的过山车迷,坐了一次蓝色的龙还不够,非要拉我再去坐红色的龙。我勉为其难的又坐了一次,下来后就快不行了:头晕,恶心,想吐。最可气的是这个家伙竟然还不过瘾,又跑去绿色的Hulk 过山车,趁快关门了没人排队自己再坐一次!我对大伟的平衡能力自此佩服的如黄河之水,连绵不绝。当然,也以我独自等他坐过山车为理由要挟他陪我去我在地图上看到的“大米滑梯”。

一路上我们还嘀咕了半天:按照地图的简单介绍,这个滑梯有快5米高,应该是和滑沙差不多的原理吧。不过怎么样才能不让这么多的大米生虫子呢?我们两个都是百思不得其解。管它呢,到了不就知道了!沿着地图指引的方向走了半天,竟然来到了以美国著名儿童动画“帽子里的猫”为主题建造的儿童乐园岛,左看右看也没见到大米山,在地图上指示的确切地点倒是有一座不小的冰滑梯。不管了,先排队问问再说,也许是从冰滑梯进入大米山屋也说不定呢。我们排好了队,前面都是带着小孩的大人,最大的小孩也不超过10岁吧。我问前面的两个漂亮的美国小姑娘,哪里有大米,结果两个人都迷惑不解的看着我好象我说的是火星语一样。难道是我英文不好?不应该啊,我的40多个学生也没有抱怨听不懂我说话啊!还是再研究研究地图好了。结果……真是晴天霹雳:原来不是大米山(rice slide),而是冰山(ice slide)。看来,这就是给小孩设计的冰滑梯而已,哪有什么大米嘛!但是这个时候我和大伟已经排到了,也只好硬着头皮坐进气垫船,由工作人员推下了滑梯。三秒钟后到地,我们两个爬出来简直是落荒而逃。天那,竟然会犯这种低级错误!不过也真佩服工作人员,面不改色心不跳的就把我们两个活宝就推下去了。唉!原谅我们这两个乡下人吧。

乐园7点关门,很遗憾还有很多项目没有玩到,比如蜘蛛人体验,漂流等。不过,还是那句话,为了下一次再来。晚上的城市之路非常漂亮,我和大伟手牵手随人群漫步。这真是梦一般的日子,但愿此情此景常相随。
