Islamabad


一种让人陶醉的美,一花一草,青山浮云,如诗如画。

伊斯兰玛堡(Islamabad, 巴基斯坦的首都。就算把整个城市比作一个恬静的花园一点都不为过。稀稀拉拉的小洋房不经意的藏在葱绿的树林和灌木之中,清脆的鸟叫远比那小轿车的喇叭来地欢快。就算是最繁华的大街上也只有稀松的几栋办公楼,懒洋洋的路人和舒缓行驶的汽车。整个城市有一种与其他大都市不一样的生机:自然。

少却了那总也躲不开的喧哗,多的是那数不尽的绿叶和草地。漫步在林荫的小道,或是缓缓地行驶在宽敞的马路上,生怕稍微快一点就会错过了生命中的灿烂,身边点点滴滴的美。伊斯兰玛堡给人一种难以言喻的,早让现代都市忘却了的那种很舒心的感觉。清晨眺望不远处的山脉,回想着昨天在山顶上的美味烧烤;花香,泥土香,大自然的气息轻拂着身上因嘈杂都市而疲倦的神经;夜晚满天的繁星述说着讲不完的故事,决不让人寂寞。

一个让人难以忘怀的城市,一种老是不想走的感觉。这不就是古人所向往的与世无争的天堂?陶渊明笔下的世外桃源?凡世中的种种烦恼仿佛都被这青山挡在了城市之外。让我总不尽的感慨这是梦吗?

两天的旅行让我又增长多许对生活的理解和感恩,现在回想着那种清心的感觉:一股莫名的失落感不由而生。

Something one can learn from people, others one can learn from books. But there are things that one just has to see and feel. That is the city of Islamabad.

I really loved the city of Islamabad. I relished every moment when I was there. I could stay on of top of the mountain, Pirsohawa, for one month! (well, I might lose my job after one month, that is a story of another day). Watching the sun rise from the green, crawling mountain in the morning, breathing in the thin, refreshing air…and when the night comes with watchful gazes from countless stars, indulging in the hallucinating incense of Arabian Sheesha…

The day would be as lazy as how the sun raises herself up in the morning. Birds lined up and squeaked merrily on every branch of the trees. Cloudless sky was washed blue; graceful mountains patched the horizon with the city; Chill breeze tenderly reminded people of the approaching winter. There was no agitation, no anxiety and no hurriedness. It had a precious calmness in the air. In this city, greeneries are not the decoration of concrete buildings, it is rather the opposite. There are only scattered few buildings protruding among the trees, bushes and flowers. People are careful not to move too fast. The hastiness will only make people miss out joyfulness brewed by every cheerful colors and fragrance in the city.

I realized how much I longed the indulgence with mother earth. Mesmerizing.
