Memory Fragments Unforgettable Tour of Italy
When it comes to Italy, many friends will be like Jane, what ancient Roman ruins, St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican, Venice in the water city, Renaissance and Florence, and Italian football.
I have longed for the Apennine peninsula and always hope to be close to the Italian style.
So when I completed the African mission five years ago, even the accommodation and transportation took care of myself, and only three days, I did not hesitate to choose to stop in Rome. And now, many memories have become fragments, onlyThe following things made me unforgettable, as if it was yesterday. First, the “terrorist” “Chinese” was at 5 am on April 27, 2003, and the plane arrived at the Rome International Airport on time.
After I finished the immigration procedure and picked up the baggage, I walked to the hall door with the scattered passengers.
I have contacted my friends in advance and asked him to pick me up.
I saw this door as Gate 21, I was worried that he was looking for the wrong exit and wanted to call him.
There is a coin-operated phone next to it, but I only have US dollars and need to be converted into Euros.
So I went to a man and asked if he could help change the money.
He first stunned and asked who I am?
When I said “Chinese,” he immediately raised a lot of hands, his hand to me, his expression was extremely horrible, and he even retired three steps!
The meaning is very clear: let me keep a certain distance from him.
Yes, when China was at the time of “SARS” and “猖獗”, the whole world was frightened and everyone talked about it.
I immediately indicated that I have been from Africa and have not returned to China for two years.
At this time, he was relieved. When I returned to China on the 29th, I saw the Air China Boeing 747-400 entering the station at the airport.
The ground crew of the airport, if they are close to the enemy, all wear masks, put on protective clothing, and then disinfect the aircraft. The flights of other countries are not subject to such “courtesy”. crush, if a country is out of healthThe problem is indeed a disaster for this country.
Because the central government took decisive measures, it only took a short time to defeat SARS. It is indeed remarkable.
Second, the “brave” “Chinese” I stayed at the hotel near the train station in Rome, just a few minutes walk to the station.
My friend bought a round-trip ticket from Rome to Venice in advance.
On the morning of the 28th, I came to the station alone.
Different from the domestic railway station style, it is completely open, where the bus stop at the North Square of Beijing West Railway Station, you just need to find the corresponding train, and then check the ticket before the automatic ticket gate on the platform.You can get on the bus with a click.
After checking the ticket, I went to the store next to I bought some snacks and drinks, and I was ready to get on the bus.
While walking through the bustling crowd, suddenly three meters in front of me, a young man who came to the opposite side shouted, and lifted the carry-on baggage slightly.
I subconsciously feel that he is calling people, it seems to be a friend who has not seen for many days.
However, in an instant, his body fell heavily backwards, and I was close to him at this time!
Then, his eyes straightened and his mouth was foaming.
I immediately understood that he had an emergency!
Although I didn’t know how to deal with it, I did not hesitate to kneel down and step my right hand on the hole in his man. At this time his friend hurried over and shouted his name, surrounded byPeople, and my hands never leave.
About two minutes or so, his mind seems to be a little clear, and his eyes are also god.
Soon, the police arrived and prepared to take him to the hospital.
And I know that I don’t need me anymore, so I stood up and walked to the train. No one asked me because they were concerned about the patient.
I don’t know if his condition is so fast and it is related to my behavior.
But I understand in my heart that as a passionate, brave, upright, and sensible person, when others need help, I will always turn my own hands on the ground.
In a foreign country, I represent an upright Chinese.
Third, the “angry” “Chinese” Even though I have lived in Europe for two years, this is the first time for a train trip.
Everything in the car is fresh and comfortable. The transparent sliding door aligns the “box” with the aisle, which reduces the noise and the scenery on both sides.
The car is very quiet, only the regular sound of the wheel and the rail contact, everyone is thinking about the matter.
My mood gradually calmed down from the excitement brought by the station’s “righteousness” and enjoyed the scenery outside the window.
Someone on the way, get off, I am the only man in the “box”, it is natural that I take the luggage.Just came up with a beautiful girl, sitting across from me.
Her polite temperament, especially the clear blue eyes with melancholy, makes people feel sympathy, compassion, and caring, which gives me a good feeling.
She is always reading, and occasionally talking to the ladies next to me.
Where does she come from?
Where to go?
I don’t know.
Got it, even if you know it, what can you do?
Self-love. gradually, my thoughts flew to the next goal – Venice.
Unconsciously, I should get off the bus.
I told you goodbye, of course, including her.
“Goodbye,” can you see me again?
I will never see it again. The road to life is in a hurry. Why do you meet each other when you meet, and it is fate to meet.
Goodbye, good luck, girl!
This car is less than the Venice Island—Santa Lucia station, you need to get off at the previous stop to change to other trains, and then pass a bridge, ten minutes.
After getting off the bus, I stood on the platform waiting, and many people were waiting here.
In order not to make a mistake, I still took out the ticket to verify the train I was going to take, and he nodded and expressed approval.
So, when the pit stop train stopped, I converted the people to the car.
The train started right away and it was getting faster and faster.
I wonder, why haven’t you seen the bridge yet?
Is it wrong?
I took out the ticket and asked the people next to them. They didn’t seem to understand.
In a short while, the car arrived, but the station name was not Santa Lucia.
As the train started again, my heart violently oscillated, and it was definitely the opposite direction.
Think about it carefully. It seems that I was back to the front in the previous car. After getting off the bus, I was confused. I didn’t pay attention to the general direction. Or did the beautiful MM make me lose my direction?
But in any case, the station staff should not make a mistake.
I had to get off at the next stop and go back.
It was supposed to go to Venice at 11 o’clock, and it turned out to be more than two hours late.
It’s really a “early morning, catching a late episode”.
Fortunately, there are still 4 hours, I can grab some time.
Located on the Adriatic coast in northeastern Italy, Venice consists of 118 islands connected by more than 400 bridges.
As the world famous water city, it is worthy of the name.
The “transit” here is a ship, which is divided into different serial numbers and is essentially a bus on the ground.
I bought a ticket and started a Venice tour.
Strolling on the island, I savored this unique style: the main style of various styles, architecture, sculpture, stained glass, etc., even the imaginary St. Mark’s Square, it is indeed stunned and lingering.
However, I did not forget the return time – 17:30.
The friend said that it takes only 30 minutes to get to the station by boat.
When I walked out of St. Mark’s Church, it was only 16 o’clock, and time was more than enough.
I came to the nearby pier and planned to go straight back, but I thought that since the bus is running around the island, why not go back from the other side and see more scenery.
So I set foot on another boat. the boat was moving forward, towards the distant island!
I am a little surprised, why not around?Maybe I will be back in a while, I comfort myself, I have enough time!
But the ship has never been in the direction of my heart.
I am worried, find the sailor directly, tell him that I am going to the train station, is this boat arriving?
He nodded. and walked for a while, and the intuition told me that the direction was wrong!
I asked the captain again, he said that you have to change another barge.
I hurriedly got off the boat, and once again carefully checked the ship and the station name, anxiously waiting. At this time it was around 16:50, only 40 minutes, and it took at least an hour from here to the station!
As time passed by, the desperate mood gradually spread throughout the body.
I am a little angry, because the new ship has not returned!
I really don’t know what the Italians are doing?
Although my English is not always clear, the ticket can tell you everything!
Do they not understand English or pretend to be grandchildren?
(American writer Dan Brown’s novel “Angels and Demons”, which also mentions that Italians do not speak English.) I think that changing trains and current encounters, I feel very helpless, extremely angry, really shouting a little, wanting to crytears!
When you come back to your friends, you must make a good time, because there is no train to Rome that night!
At this moment, I have to admit that I am unlucky, and I regret that I did not return directly to the station.
At the same time, I began to think about the arrangement of the night, how to spend this long night in beautiful Venice.
It is already 17:18!
Desperate, I suddenly found a bridge in the distance, there are cars, trains!
Is it not where you came when you came?
If so, the ship is coming to the station!
Yes, I saw it. I saw the station pier not far away. It’s really a “dark and bright village”!
I am ecstatic and excited!
I have “save”, I can go back on time!
I rushed to the shore, hurriedly bought a “burger” and boarded the return train.
This is the casino “European Star” train, the facilities on the car are quite “luxury”.
I sat in a comfortable seat and took a deep breath.
After 3 minutes, the train departed. The above is my personal experience and real feelings, and I will stay in my mind forever.
At the same time, Lenovo will have hundreds of thousands of foreign guests coming to China this year. Many of them are unfamiliar to the upstream and they need our help.
Let us provide the help of our enthusiasm, enthusiasm, love, and love, because we are Chinese!Read More
