在路上 2007 San Diego (十) 灾区

豫园开在holiday inn附近,听说平时的正餐不怎么样,偏偏周末的点心做得满正宗。这会儿,人不少,不过也没有多等,二话不说,要了醉鸡、熏鱼、油条、豆浆、肉夹膜、雪菜面,葱油饼,样样数数摆满一桌,以至于邻座的人都拿我们点的当样品参考了。

吃完打包上路,想起来之前考察南加人民火灾重建工作的任务来了。Yong说这个好办,他们家北面的几个小区烧的比较严重,不妨顺道开过去看看。下了15号高速,沿着辅路开下去,果然看见路两边山坡上一片焦土。到了灾情严重的一个小区,正想拐进去,却发现大路上还有警车把守,竖着牌子,上写:闲杂人等莫入。我们只好顺势扮作黄花鱼,溜边,找了个小路口溜了进去。

火势诡异,即使在这片小区,你也可以看到有的房屋全毁,而旁边的却丝毫无损。距离火灾也两三个星期了,大部分损毁的房子现场都清理一空了,旁边一些枯木还孤零零的立在那里,似乎描述着当时的火势凶猛。


一些清理后的房屋面前,插着各式的保险公司和垃圾清除公司的小广告,也算是把握住市场的宣传方式。听Yong说,这一回保险公司的理赔速度和金额都不错,只不过明年的保险涨多少,还是个未知数。


这几棟尚未清理的残墙断壁,足以看出当时火势的惨烈。Yong说之前的一晚,风势极大,火借风势,很快就失去了控制,从东面直接越过双向八道的15号高速,连他们也没有预料到,直到清早接到撤离通知的时候才匆匆忙忙收拾东西。至于山火的原因,San Diego今年夏季的干旱是本质,当然除了自然造成的山火之外,有些地区火因诡异,不排除有人为纵火骗取保险的可能。


烧与不烧,悬于一线;祸与福,世事难料;这之间的感触只有亲身经历过才可以体味到。自家瓦砾旁无奈的帐篷,也许成了这场火灾之后最引人注目的画面。

在路上 2007 San Diego (九) Cabrillo National Monument

出了老城,我们在GPS的引导下,直奔 Cabrillo National Monument, 没多久开到了,门票五刀。



Cabrillo National Monument在San Diego Point Loma半岛南端的小山坡上,俯瞰西面的pacific ocean 和东面的Coronado岛,地势绝佳,历史上是守卫San Diego Bay的天然屏障。说来也运气,我们小车刚开到山顶,就发现一艘美军航空母舰正离港开往外海,好大的一个家伙居然在海上开得飞快,可惜舰载飞机都不在了。旁边的ranger说是Lincoln号。San Diego是美国海军本土主要基地之一,连Coronado岛靠近公园的这一片都是海军基地。另外如果真对军事感兴趣,San Diego还有一艘 USS Midway (中途岛号) 航空母舰可以参观,因为它退役之后已经改成博物馆了。

远眺

上图中的雕像人物是葡萄牙探险家Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo,据说当年(1542)他老人家领着一群人从墨西哥Navidad港出发,航行了三个月来到了圣地亚哥湾,算是正式欧洲人踏足了美国加州沿岸。


这里的灯塔也颇有些历史,The Old Point Loma Lighthouse,启用于1855年的冬天,这会儿,也成了历史建筑了。灯塔里面是开放的,可以看看当年看塔人生活过的环境。感受之一是早年人们的个子都够矮的,看看睡觉的床就知道了,原先参观Louisiana 州大庄园地主的豪宅时,似乎也得出了同样的结论。

风景不错,海的感觉总让我觉得惬意。南加的海虽比不上加勒比海的热带风情,但远远看去,风淡云清,海也显出无边的蓝色。暖暖阳光照在身上,四下漫步,也是一种休闲。退潮的时候,有公园ranger组织tide pools tour, 说白了就是去海边看看低潮时留下的小水湾和来不及撤离的海中生物。和小时候的赶海相比,乐趣少了许多,不过从环保的角度着想,还是看看的好。

一群从北面riverside开来的摩托一党,男女老幼,马甲背心,组合的颇有意思。老美这儿的人,还真看不准。也许你平时看到的是邻居阿姐, 没准儿过一阵子人家就骑上摩托云游去了。整个就是一个hobby。趁机拍了两张照片,还请其中的一个大汉帮我和Yong拍张合影,闲聊几句,颇为友善。

这回儿肚子有些叫了,决定撤了。Yong推荐去一家豫园的地方吃北方早点,正和我意。大餐也吃得差不多了,应该换换口味,更何况今晚还要留肚子和小榛子她们去城中最好的日餐大快朵颐呢。

在路上 2007 San Diego (八) 老城

周六,Yong说陪我出去转转。San Diego适合小孩子玩的地方不少,我们家正式在老美旅游的第一站,也是San Diego, 那时候我家小宝才一岁半。还记得她当时参观动物园时一觉醒来看见一只大老虎,问她是什么,回答说是大猫,真是经典。最近几天关于华南纸老虎的新闻也真是经典啊,仿照的也好,打假的也好,我们什么时候能把这精神头用到该用的地方就好了。不过中国目前就是个全民娱乐,大家都暖饱了,总得找个乐子。所以我总觉得中国多弄些reality tv show, 没准儿比老美这儿还好看,真的,we’re ready now.

回到正题,这一回一个人出来,对那些去过的主题公园兴趣不多,Yong说领我去别处逛逛。

闲逛的第一站是老城(old town)。这才发现我每天上课开在八号路上看到的白顶建筑是老城的标志性建筑之一。老城的历史知之不多,据说是早年西班牙殖民者占领加州的第一个定居地(mission,中文翻译成传道院?殖民和宗教总是息息相关的,西方文明的历史)。不过我对历史的兴趣不大,两个人四处走走,发现和常见的旅游区一样,许多卖纪念品的小店。大部分地方都是走马观花地看看,看见有专业的摄影师在给人拍照,应该是不错的外景地。去了一处最古老的房子,还有山顶的白色建筑,原以为是教堂,实际是个博物馆,1929年建的,为了纪念当年的Father Junipero Serra 和 Captain Gaspar de Portol,因为收钱,也没有进去。倒是山顶这一片,有些高耸入云的松木桦木,满地的松针枯叶,从林间望下去,是都市繁忙的高速。此时此地,颇有些闹中取静的感觉。

在路上 2007 San Diego (七) 叙旧


(copied from theadventureofalifetime.wordpress.com)

周五,终于一个星期的课结束了,大伙很快就散了,连上课的老师都急着走,原本我还有些问题,可惜得到的答案都是匆匆忙忙的。如果昨天和今天的课能对调一下就好了。

今晚约好了去朋友Yong那里看看,住个周末。他们来San Diego时间也不算太长,可房子是越换越大,充分见证了南加房子前几年暴长的过程。只是这一阵子,这儿的房市要淡很多。

顺道去大华停了停,想买些海鲜。发现自己最中意的海螺很不新鲜,就换了主意,买了些石蟹(stone crab)和海岘(clam),外加一瓶梅子酒。意外还碰到了一起上课的H, 很热情,答应下回有机会去他那儿坐坐。

北去的15号高速塞的满满的,慢慢地挪,快到朋友家附近的时候看到之前San Diego野火肆虐过的痕迹。想起不久前的一晚,坐在家中,突然电视里转播南加大火的实况新闻,这才意识到这火灾比想像的凶猛。打电话给Yong, 家里居然没人接,第二日再试,连电话都忙音了。后来听Yong说,他们一大早六点就被电话唤醒,要求紧急疏散,只好匆匆忙忙逃往LA. 那一阵,漫天烟雾遮天蔽日,沿途疏散的车流滚滚,颇有些好莱坞大片中的感觉。还好,没两日回来,他们新区的房子完好无损,保险公司的动作也颇快,很快把他们撤离的费用也给补助了。

Yong的新家GPS地图上没指示,不过在他的电话指挥下,很快也找到了。非常典型的加州新小区的样子,一栋栋房子间隔开,不同的颜色样子,整洁安静,要说少了些什么,就是当地没有什么树。南加颇旱,即使海边也一样,想来路上见到的一些漂亮的树,多半是后来种的了。

喝喝小酒,吃吃海鲜,随便聊聊各自的经历和八卦,时光倒流,恍惚间仿佛又回到当年的香港读书生活,只是这一聚,大家都老了些。

在路上 2007 San Diego (六)

San Diego机场自称有Free Wifi, 可惜试了半天,wireless连上了,但是却连不上网。后来找到一个无名的hotpot, 反倒好用。大概免费的知名度高了,人人趋之若骛,反而连不上了?

今天八点多的飞机,六点半从朋友那儿出发,可以GPS开到一半又不灵了(后来发现是接触的问题)。在朋友那儿看到Garmin便携式的GPS, 信号也好,非常的方便。嗯,考虑买一个,Costco 现在有折扣,只是要去欧洲旅行的话,地图卖的太贵了,顶上另一个GPS了。

要登机了,下回再灌。

比牛还牛

看到这则新闻,我们是中国人,比牛还牛:中国游客在华尔街,无语中。

几点想法,
1。看来出国旅游文明教育还是有必要的,教育得还不够啊。
2。报道消息的这位老兄手机相机的效果不行了,好歹把骑上牛的领导脸照清楚,也好发到天涯上来个人肉搜索啊。
3。拜托下回干这事,有人问是国人还是日本人的时候,赶快给人鞠个躬,自认是日本人。
4。靠,最后就想知道,这是国内哪个部门派出来的!@#$%^&

在路上 2007 San Diego (五)

第四天上课,最闷的一天,内容不对胃口,很多时候在想自己的设计,或者放空,或者瞌睡。

不过课上的老中都熟悉了,中午吃饭的时候一桌,海阔天空,旁边一德国人羡慕说你们老中还是热乎的快啊,他们欧洲人一大堆,还是慢热。

下午拉人一起吃晚上,终于打动了地头蛇们的内疚感,聚集了多人再次杀回小肥羊。边吃边聊,不亦乐乎。相约下回有机会到德州吃烤肉,这一圈子说小不小,说大不大,六度空间的人际理论应该很容易验证。

吹牛的时间总是很快,开车回去的路上,想着还是人家加州的筒子有上进心啊。人在德州,真的会懒散起来。

小榛子又发了消息,说是bless真的起作用了,相约在San Diego最好的Susui店,Ota. 期待中。

在路上 2007 San Diego (四)

现在出门在外,GPS是离不开了。可是依赖GPS的坏处之一就是不记路。这不,已经开了三天了,还是糊里糊涂,一不留神,早上去上课开错一次,晚上下课开错一次,这个郁闷。这会儿坐下来仔细瞅地图,发现我这几天的规律生活是早上晚上顺时针地绕以下高速:8号,5号,52号和163号,绕的那叫一个精确,时间都不差。

另外发现San Diego开车还真有够愣的,这几天遇到两回了,打灯准备换Lane, 后视镜ok, 开始转头看的时候发现想换的lane上不知何处何时以极快的车速飙过一辆。你说你大老晚的前面还堵车,你飙个头啊?真不知道这类开车方式的存活率是多少?

今晚去的是重庆巴人,上课的Gang推荐的,说是大厨不错,Los Angeles跳槽过来的,位置就在昨天小肥羊的对面。六点钟,店里只坐了一桌,也许是对面的抢生意了?要了一个三拼的冷盘和特色菜什么什么鱼片,不太记得了,和水煮鱼的做法相似,不过问过老板娘,她说这道菜有汤底,而水煮鱼反倒是蔬菜垫底的。川菜,我也品不出个好坏,麻辣够劲儿,只是鱼片的分量似乎少了些,不是看我一个人吧。

和Yong打电话,他说我把San Deigo的餐馆吃的差不多了,我说那好,周末相聚的时候我们买些虾兵蟹将,来个家常菜,尝尝Ran的精湛手艺。 :)

在路上 2007 San Diego (三)小肥羊

接着上课,今儿讲的东西理论性太强,一堆公式,弄的上午下午脑袋都涨涨的,信息过载。

三个不同的班,老中不少,多是本地的地头蛇,不过发现还有好多同学竟然从欧洲、澳洲、中东、以色列什么的地方来这儿上课,太夸张了。不过我也佩服,jet lag人家还能听的进去,换我自己,德州不过比这儿早两个小时,睡眠就已经乱套了。

晚上接着找食,终于找到了N个人推荐的小肥羊,英文是little sheep mongolian hot pot, 据说早年在国内就特火。周二的晚上,来得算早,人不多。进门一看,装修的简洁明亮大方,和传统的美国中餐馆感觉就不一样,难得的是居然有非常PP的服务生MM。聊了聊,按推荐要了极品肥羊和肥牛A眼肉,外加一个冻豆腐。很快,滋补鸳鸯的火锅底就上桌了,虽说一人,倒也不欺生,给上了个几个人合用的大火锅,脸盆大小,红白相见,香味扑鼻,整个一个色香味俱全。胃口大开。牛羊肉相继上桌,好家伙,满满两大盘,我正和LD汇报呢,看着架势有些傻眼,LD电话那头鼓励说,没事儿,知道我有潜力。

果然名不虚传,羊肉牛肉鲜嫩可口,一涮即熟,火锅红底也不是很辣,据说是十几味中药材隈出来的,配方还保密。服务员小姐过来打招呼,狠夸了她们一顿,总之希望她们生意能越做越大,让北美各地的老中人人都有的吃,再把老美也吸引过来,真正推广一下特色中餐。

满满的两大盘居然让我给消灭掉了,还有些意犹未尽。下回有机会,要尝尝他们的海鲜了。

回到旅馆,小榛子发来消息,说是感冒了,看来明天的聚餐要往后延了。其实她的感冒症状早有迹象,因为她居然说前两天去La Jolla海边看海狮,没有闻到海狮的味道,这是多么严重的鼻塞啊。呵呵,开个玩笑,还是bless她早日恢复健康吧。

吃得太饱了,看了会儿书,这阵子,还是下去蒸蒸泡泡消消食吧。

在路上 2007 San Diego (二)

在Mission Bay 附近的Hilton酒店上课,结果发现那儿的Hilton也是只有大堂才可以免费使用wifi, 而会议厅里的wifi也是要签协议的,想来又是要钱。这么看来,Hilton酒店集团的做法真是开历史倒车啊,在目前motel free wifi到处都是的情况下,尤其显得小气。

上了一天课,脑筋还算跟得上,睡得不好,只好狂喝咖啡。

中午管饭,结果几桌摆在酒店外的游泳池旁,海风一吹,这叫一个泌人心脾,冻的。加州来得都知道,毛衣夹克穿的严严实实的,我一短袖polo衫,德州来得乡下人。惨,狂吃butter补充热量。正餐的烤鸡味道淡如嚼蜡,tastes like chicken? raw chicken.

傍晚下了课,摸黑开在San Diego的高速上找吃的。事先和班上的老中打听了一下,大概弄清了中餐馆的位置。推荐小肥羊,想着也好,弄斤羊肉补补身子,路上打电话给朋友,朋友说是火锅,一个人不好点,还是凑齐了周末一起去吧,想想也好。于是误打误撞,去了富临,粤菜,看看菜单才知道餐馆名字的来由,就是有钱才来的地方。象我这样的?挨宰不是。菜点的也不好,吃不出粤菜特色,不过等着的时候喝饱了茶,把laptop电给充了,回去的路上还要靠它gps呢。

饭后消食,去附近的大华逛了逛,加州人民的生活指数太高了,贵就一个字,不过看着海鲜中的海螺象拔蚌等shell fish眼馋,谁让德州人民买不到呢?

昨晚和小榛子联系上了,期待再聚,期待日餐。:)

在路上 2007 San Diego

对于习惯了家庭旅行的人来说,一个人的旅行是孤单的、无聊的,我甚至有些恐惧长时间的飞行。这样看来,飞友还是有需求的。不知道通过我们的网站有没有回国路上成功找到飞友的?前不久还看到老美专门针对飞友开了个网站呢。

AA Online Checkin方便是方便,可惜boarding pass打印功能做的太差,两段行程打下来,第二段的boarding pass 打成了两截,Check in 行李的时候问了问柜台,说是没事儿,只是在Dallas登机的时候,别人的Boarding pass 一扫就哔哔一声,到我这儿就扫不出来了,嘎然而止,特象这几天visa常做的广告。我只好耸耸肩,装作不以为然。

出公差,公司的travel agent总是能拿到安全门附近可以伸腿儿的座位,而自己订票,多半是翅膀之后的,这也许是飞北美通过旅行社订票的唯一好处了。

飞机上我最能集中精神做的一件事情就是呼呼大睡。如果未来的飞机开放卧铺,我举双手赞成。好像新的空客A380有包厢了?隐约记起新航首飞的时候有夫妇一时性起却被空姐制止的八卦新闻

飞机上的背景噪声是去噪耳机的最好市场的。我们公司有一款芯片就是针对这个的。嗯,考虑买个试试。

San Diego的气温居然比Austin还要低一些,今年德州的天气果然反常,十一月还是短衣打扮。

下了飞机等shuttle, 外面竟然细雨朦朦,不爽。Avis的服务也不怎样,不过现在看来,prefered membership的待遇比regular 要好好多了,下来shuttle就直接取车了,可惜自己不是。

San Diego的旅馆普遍偏贵。Double Tree的趴车要钱,早餐要钱,旅馆房间里的互联网也要钱,简直是抢钱啊。害的我只好在lobby里上网,感觉旅馆有些小家子气。

来San Diego, 周末的时候可能会和朋友一起缅怀一下南加人民火灾后的重建工作吧。

另外,似乎人在旅途的新鲜感在逐渐消失,难道是心灵老化的象征?也许是劳动人民被资本家剥削的后遗症吧。

劫,色戒,去San Diego的路上

工作的事情,大忙了几个月,早出晚归,周末加班,连blog 都没了心情,算是一劫。

劫后,和LD去看了色戒,之前没看过原著,倒是买卖提上的观后感一篇接一篇,文学青年的激情都被激发起来了。不错的电影,只不过节奏有些缓,和LD讨论了一些男人女人各自的看法,推出两个字:戒色。还有一点,就是个人相对于生活的时代相比,是如何的微不足道。从这点意义而言,我们每个人都是幸福的。

重新上路,去San Diego, 却没有太多路上的兴奋了。不管如何,blog 应该会接下去吧。
