今天上上下下走了山村徑總共四次,從五高到眾志堂、利黃瑤璧上上下下也走了四次,累得快要虛脫。1點和一個ABC忙完project回到紫霞(此北京籍貫佛州出生的ABC和另一福建籍貫加拿大出生的ABC用英語和普通話交互對切,我於是邊打字邊享受一場聽覺盛宴)。打開郵箱,竟然看到了Up with People的郵件。想起了大約九個月前,我從不能推遲的中大入學和一學期的海外旅行中忍痛割愛,選了前者。這封信件的口吻也頗親切,就像IIT在我離開的時候寫來的那封告別信那樣。它的題目是一種略帶提及過去的“Could Up with People be in your future again? ”

Hi Tiancheng, 

There is never a dull moment at Up with People and the staff is always working very hard to put together the most exciting and educational tours for each traveling cast.

While we know you have opted to withdraw your participation in the Up with People program, we have just released the new tour for Cast B 2009, and it is so exciting that we wanted to share it with you. The tour begins July 10th with staging in Denver, Colorado , after which Cast B will depart for three weeks of travel in the Southwestern United States . They will then explore the heart of Mexico for five weeks and finish up with a 10-week journey through several regions in Europe, including Scandinavia and Eastern Europe . 

If your life situation and/or plans have changed since your choice to withdraw from Up with People, you may want to look at this opportunity to travel in July with Cast B 2009.  For information you can call 303-460-7100 ext. 108 to speak to an Admissions Representative or email Joel Mauney at jmauney@upwithpeople.org.

Maybe now is not the right time to reconsider participation in Up with People.  In that case, we do have some positions available for our five month tours starting in January 2010 and July 2010.  Please contact us at the above number or email address for details.  

We’d love to hear from you. 

 

Sincerely,

Colleen Eastman

看了這封信才發覺自己其實真是挺懷念去年的。有意思的是,其實我本來打算寫篇博客,寫北京的吃的的,因爲剛才說的那個籍貫北京的ABC今天從七姑八姨那裏帶來了荔枝糕(其實是正經的南方點心,不過我老覺得這東西讓我浮想聯翩到北京小吃)。又因爲昨天沈夏宜的一篇表達春日到來、渴望愜意生活的日誌裏邊,張宇有回復

“北京這時候,早上起來會特別冷,不想鉆出被窩兒,起來可能還得打個哆嗦,騎車的路上吸進的都是涼氣,路過早點攤兒,豆腐腦兒的大鍋冒著熱氣,到了學校,感覺燈特別亮,7點25,老師包準進教室,課間操的時候大家穿著大大肥肥的校服即興地跳著時代在召喚,這時候太陽出來有了點暖意,也就餓了,不是去大姨兒那買腸兒吃就是去那邊兒來個煎餅,中午吃飽飯,不是去操場看球就是去辦公室問問題,下午第一節課肯定是困的不得了,拿著杯子去內巨神的時刻都有開水的機器沏茶或者弄咖啡,最後一節課後那班裏地上全是紙,背上書包感覺回了家可以頹好久,在車棚還得跟好多人打招呼,騎車出胡同看見走著人還是從背後給一腳,騎遠了再回頭兒罵一句,路上還有可能遇著喜歡的,就慢慢跟著,要是討厭的,不是撒鴨子猛蹬就是可勁兒的都快倒了的慢蹬,回到家時正好太陽快落山,多美好的一天啊~~~ ”

當時有一種仿佛魂歸故里的陶醉感。

我先打開了日誌窗口,然後打開了郵箱,現在兩種不同感覺的懷念交綜錯織,不知道該怎麽辦好了。

 
期待夢裏能巡遊各處吧,也希望今天晚上可愛的人們都做個好夢。北京,世界,北京,地球。
