Shangri-La Shangri-La, one due to a novel as so many crazy names. As the names I remember it was in previous years, only in the scramble settled in Zhongdian, I or many like me will go to Zhongdian Shangri-La in people's minds what is? I think that should be a modern society opposed to the ideal kingdom. She should have a beautiful snow-capped mountains; quiet rural; color of forests, and many people aspire to the mysterious. . . . . . . .
(A) October 3 morning, we usually lack of exercise and his party on the plateau of the city people out of a fear response to Zhongdian airport, come to pick up the Naxi is a simple guy: WU Yiu Cheong. (Later I always call into the wrong Hu, Ha ha!) ... ....
Little known outside the Dalat Palace of Songzanlinsi be able to photograph a panorama of the place, was surrounded by a wooden fence JANSEN, from time to time some children holding a small lamb and out of costumes, cute! Comrade Hu Yaobang tells the whole story: the local villagers, despite the government to discourage, the place is enclosed leak-bent for only one round of ticket money, those costumes, Tibetan students were very enthusiastic with your camera at the same time be very professional l out little hands to you for money. It was located in the Mid-platform, can see the edge of run-down houses, compared with the fairly ambitious Songzanlinsi picture, but the cliffs Bangshan 4 "Shangri-La," the characters seemed to be especially dazzling, when suddenly; local government not be in the block of local villagers repair the fence, but the grateful villagers of these relatively simple for their folly to hide the ugly. That looked down to which Buddha is said to be a waste of milk Lama river, meandering through from the grass, to be honest: In addition to hear that it never freezes, really do not gnaw way! "Come and Kamba guy, and a shadow bar" side came cries of, rich, looked, and indeed a pretty burly of the Tahan did pull his head as if a white yak-ion hot (I have seen white in Jiuzhaigou yak, yaks do not like it as there are rules, so white and curly, it is believed that man-made) selling out loud, do not be a small business is booming, it seems a good shout to have to rely on the sale is indeed wisdom ah! Excited Kham guy put sailing on the ocean by the helmsman of the POSS with the Tibetan singing songs, always felt wrong, listen carefully, God! Is Stengel's "Mongol "@#$%^& stuff! . . . . . . Songzanlinsi filled with thick butter flavor, a line of religion as we know very little about the fast climb stairs into the bandy legs and see the white butter; high through the sails; pious monks chanting small; Jingmei see Buddha on down, Comrade Hu Yaobang laughs: You buy a ticket doing? This money is to make 10 Living Buddhas acquainted with the situation of money. Having said we should drive us directly on the mountain see that again. Forget! . . . . . . .
Napa lake from afar is still pretty good, like an emerald embedded in between two mountains, the horse in the meadow on the stroll, rode galloping desire to remember with affection. Ride a donkey as the size of Yunnan horses, marched in more than 30 per square meter with horse manure on the eggs of the meadow and feel into a Wu Yingxiong by Genghis Khan. Particularly oppressive in front of first place is not sent to me when the above 15CM caliber "ammunition" halo ah! I find the boring is that left to my silver tongue to white exclusion, Qian Ma Tibetan Daisow past two days some people fall from his horse and broke the spine to the ground, refused to give me the reins, in order to prove that I will be horse riding, I rode flew up, can be persistent Daisow who even with the horse race, looking at her hard breathing heavily, whose consciences are moved. Everything! . . . . . . .
Meili Snow Mountain rushed to the viewing platform is 17 o'clock, when the magic in the mist in the exposed Meri small corner, and so we actually got off Meri completely disappeared in the clouds, mycophenolate ah! Then the edge of the eyes from time to time came Yuan Du, chatted up after using the standard Mandarin of those people started smiling faces, the original local legends, as long as the Japanese visit, it will Yanqu its mysterious face, and think about is, 91 years that have been drowned mountain is Japanese, not the whole letter of the letter is not from time! . We burn incense and pray facing the Kamiyama worship, pray for sunshine tomorrow morning will show us that golden dome. . . . . . . Dechen is a small town surrounded by mountains, due to development of tourism here before can not find other people to make ends meet for the resources, we can only have become the surrounding barren hills, it always shrouded in debris in danger of complete annihilation even now engaged in tourism, said it is still a poverty-stricken counties in Yunnan Province, one of the three; upcoming relocation! To Deqin completely dark when the days, and his wife were due to travel fatigue + altitude sickness retreating to her room, dinner for Woliang Tate's menfolk to resolve. Deqin down under the dim light without losing busy streets on both sides from time to time came HIGH, HIGH "enemy dead nibbling" and the excited voice sounds crawling Kang, each intersection has a group of Tibetan dance in a circular motion, non-small-will, the same excitement The Bokor joined the ranks of the dancers, but that he always can not learn a simple step, like the TV-picture in the slow movement, the fault of one watching the game, looked a bit like the look of the mountain's international friends Huai Xiao. Let me also dispel the idea to add a picture in picture. . . . . . . . . . . .
(B) the morning of October 4, cold pressing the darkness before dawn, flying Siwai packed with tired Suzhuobozi tourists learn some of the pious Tibetans to Kamiyama Buddha; a cost-effective point of the fire-point the Kaohuo mouth, but not stop muttering: Huo-point! The Meili Snow Mountain mist into steam to open! (???@#$^%& Set fire to mountain, would it not be more forthcoming) "Today we must see the Meili Snow Mountain," passionate burst of Mandarin in Shanghai attracted the most attention, a gang of Staff Committee of the Shanghai people directed at tour guide, "We have come three days, except for the car that is eating, so today we must suffer her face#^&*$" guides, Qu Qu Yin looked up from time to time the days inundated with rain, whispering Answer: This is not my final say, and may look like the days are Mody. . . . . . .
Vehicles in the Lancang River valley gallops, in passing, when MCA burial, that three stand upright in the wind through the sails, as if warning us or is intended to a certain indescribable blending the spirit of the MCA good-bye! Mingyong a modern place names glacier, we climbed to 2600 meters to 2900 meters at the entrance all the way the highest viewing platform, Burongyia! Hill is still shrouded in thick fog in a mountain stream to import several stocks in the gem-colored glaciers, but it has not seen the slightest change, surprised when the edge of the administrator Road: The mountain's glaciers are actually provided by an avalanche and Bingbeng caused by 50 meters every year in order to speed down the slide, the reason for such low elevations there were still ice, because ice is less than the speed of melting glaciers sliding speed. When the sun can see Bingbeng. . . . . .
The way back to Zhongdian, see the bulk destroyed forests, rolling hills next arrhizus residual dark gray stumps sit like a tombstone, the wind is blowing is blowing the blowing, the world seemed a tree with drizzle children were in the crying, feeling kind of sad that people feel were as bad as this situation continued for several kilometers, and some hills Since he has left many felled but not removed under the root of the whole logs, Xiao-Hu Road: Due to Deqin engage in tourism, our great leader Story Sun-like deities, gave an order, the scene was in full swing, such as freeze-frame-like in front of us, changing not only the green mountain; on the good wood into dead wood; time lumberman may now be charged an attraction tickets.
(C) October 5 morning, I was driving to speeding in the case of both the lake road, the road good times and bad, and the case of road vehicles have occurred, I took out in the cities Cuntubizheng wealth of experience and deal with other vehicles. I am not proud to see Comrade Hu Yaobang Zou not stop the brow, at first I thought he was distressed that his car had not too concerned about. When I was super, after so many cars, he finally Biebu Zhu has said: On our drive so you will be Masi's. Here the original drive to give way as the norm, overtaking the car in front to wait after you; and Tao have to stop so that the first crossing by car into the passage, whether he is a tractor or a horse. . . . . . Shame ah! From then on in Yunnan, I never touched the steering wheel.
Autumn Lake is all, like the shy girl, color the trees reflection in a quiet lake, surrounded by mountains. From time to time in the lake water horse 3322, in the distance rugged ranch fences and braved the silhouetted against the smoke of the cabin, the indescribable beauty of people, several rolls of film of our reimbursement.
The way to Lijiang, it began to rain, rows to the Tiger Leaping Gorge, simple and honest management of non-stop up to us to explain: it rains there is the danger of falling rocks it. . . . . . . Expressed its understanding of Italy with a trace of regret, all the way to Lijiang rush downhill. To wet weather, on the road to see several cases of car accidents, strange that no license plates, Xiao-hu laughs: the local people a good face, so after the first of a skid plate under the will. Ha ha! - Self-deceiving. Bokor-like non-stop along the way, as Xianglinsao whispered something in the mess of things this reason that everyone changed his name Cheung Ringo, ha ha! Enjoyable ah! (In the case of both lakes was finished car, I was not less subject to his "teachings")
Dusk in the old city side of the big waterwheel with Comrade Hu Yaobang say good-bye, because we have a small travel agency to help set the room, fellow male was admitted to the shock in the rustling Xingwen Lane Inn-class home. Dayan Old Town in the light against the background, the simplicity but without losing busy. Colored style bars and restaurants, crowded with tourists from around the; street pavement operating a Cangshi, Naxi wood, tea, herbs, jade and other very local characteristics of the goods; rely on the river merchants hang strings of red lanterns , reflection in the water and unimpeded. First arrived in Lijiang impression: In addition to some overload of people feel this is a very suitable place to live.
Lijiang (4) October 6 got up early, rain so thick I was fortunate to read this very excited rustle Naxi characteristics of small homes, shock rustle a Naxi language, stimulated the flow of water very quickly, rustle for the chain mean. In another hospital a one-meter-wide stream from the bottom out of the kitchen while wearing a hospital before, white walls put back the river was a man of the house felt the return of falconry as a poem, sitting in a hospital chatted with the hostess up. . . Xingwen Lane lived mostly Li, the early Ming Dynasty when the magistrate should be invited to move to here from Nanjing to engage in silver processing, it is also known to play Xingwen Lane, Silver Lane; this house Jian Yuqing Tao-kuang, Naxi courtyard style left and right each with a two-tier, door of that room floor under construction, when the design is also a two-tier, according to the hostess say; pillars have been erected at that time, because people think it will block the back of their home feng shui, so ask them to come kowtow Do not build 2nd floor, her ancestors immediately ordered the craftsmen to saw off the columns. . . . Then pass the stories of neighborhood harmony. Xingwen lane streams such as their homes, but after wearing the reasons for the separation of families everywhere formed resting hospital. Listen for the water, tea, smoking, when Lijiang if they have entered the film in slow motion, so I sat idly in the morning.
Heilongtan the afternoon, we had the best life of business planning: Dongba Cultural Park entrance a timid little boy who told us about; he was intern and ask if you can explain for us; we Lao Jianghu like asking whether money, get free answer, we are with him into the court. Along the way he was introduced to us a number of Dongba hieroglyphs and the Dongba paper making process is straight raw materials and receive one of our sales Dongba look like works of art booth, there is written on paper in Dongba pictograph ; a Dongba dance spectrum and so on, a teacher dressed in warm clothing Naxi to us explaining how he was by no means sell. . . . The little boy took us to a Cave said before: the end of his talk, according to the teachings of Dongba religion, put some inside the cave, Lingshi, we can touch one person and, based on the edge of the stone points to collect the corresponding free souvenirs. We follow the advice and got one after each of the text printed with the Dongba bookmarks. See our staff a little boy, but also said: The above contains each person's fortune, such as the clear meaning of the above be able to (pointing to the edge of the writing of two Naxi old) that they ask; So each of us to the 20 round tip has been taught the old Dongba's statue statue (which is voluntary, because there is merit to see the side boxes, the old Dongba did not mention the money over a word)
Later, wood and stone markers met the boss, signed on and asked him about the content, he laughs: This is a period of Dongba scriptures, talking about the myth of the black and white war. We accompanied him laugh, and no deception, anger. Han Dongba meaning wise man, is indeed simple. We are pondering the whole process of listing its wow. . . . . . .
(5) 10 7, sunny days, and early in the morning we have a caravan in the Square Street ride a horse around the ancient city turn a full circle, feel the former caravan through cities, but then look at our gang of Mody City Yao is not corrupt elements in the elephant, but a bit like a family and with the mouth of going legions. . . . . . . . . . In the ancient city be properly stroll around in a circle inside (basically horn Garak were dumped into).
Postscript has always been wars, because of ethnic conflicts, religion, or interests of the sky in ancient times because of high mountains and swift rivers where transportation is inconvenient and multi-ethnic co-existence of various religions to survive, people's lives and stability of modest, there is the beautiful natural scenery. Hilton described by the ideal of the Kingdom should indeed so. Because of the weather, this trip to Shangri-La, and did not see other people excited about social Mody beauty, and the people also because of the construction of roads and airports and the ancient dead; contrary to those left behind relics of human destruction left a deep impression on me. Refused to reliable sources; Deqin county day off better than we have Shanghai Mayor poor; Deqin, or the famous "red" county. . . . We are sitting in the aircraft car came from afar and does not expect to enjoy, such as primitive and beast-like Liemin race will not honor their humble cottage in the low-breaking dig out earth dug next to slash and burn food. They have the right to pursue a modern lifestyle, but also need to have good leadership to lead them to change their existing living conditions. The Shangri-La to a county title is a good idea, because it meets those of us who live fast-paced style of urban cursory way to travel. In order to meet some of their own praises went to Shangri-La does not want to spend a lot of silver and the time of people's vanity. I would like to live if Hilton would be spitting blood, because the real Shangri-La it is not just a county or a province, even a country. It is a result of the Pure Land, a paradise for people to live and work. Where people do not have irritable state of mind; they would not actually Ji Gong Lee; they would not destroy their beautiful home; they would not in his face carved their names; nor will it put its own room converted into a brothel. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Some say that Lijiang, a too commercial, I do not think so. May be Shangri-La has left me with a lot of disappointment, or because of shock to me a cranky rustle space. Lijiang gave me a good impression, and its development is modest, there is not much damage, would like to see a trace of the ancient city of modern traces somewhat hypocritical. After all, the ancient city is also a city, it needs the City's prosperity. Restaurants, bars and all kinds of flavors from around the world to exchange ideas people have the space, bringing numerous pairs of a foreign country or foreign couples. City without walls, blending with its desire to exchange views and development. Especially the ancient city of water left a deep impression on me and sigh, the ancient God planners have such a clever design wins, or at least more than we are now caused by elevated congestion, the streets are best designed with a zipper experts much savvier. . . . . . . . . . . .
Do not the Shangri-La! Do the Lijiang! !
