走进东非 - 喧嚣的城市

耽误了一个多小时,机场的客人都散了,连海关都收摊了。我担心旅游公司派来接我们的司机,会不会趁机跑路了。大家匆忙推着行李车出来,夜色里,清一色的非洲兄弟,热情地冲着我们摇着各色各样的接机牌子。我走了一圈没看到,乖儿眼尖,人堆里找到了我的名字。上去和司机握了握手,一颗悬着的心总算放下了。

一辆旅游公司派来的破旧小巴,载着我们从机场出发,沿着颠扑不平的机场路前行。城市在我们身边慢慢略去。黑夜中,路边矮矮的三四层小楼,街面门脸房的广告招牌,一种久违的熟悉感,仿佛回到了国内的小县城。不知为什么,每每来到所谓的第三世界,肤色人种不同,却总有一种莫名的亲切感,想来想去,就是那种发展中国家熟悉的喧嚣和活力。

半个钟,七拐八拐,我们来到一处陌生而僻静的街区。司机示意,这就是我们此行的第一站旅馆。已是午夜,旅馆铁门紧闭,司机特意帮我叫门,喊了一声。一会儿,楼梯声响,下来了两个黑人兄弟。帮忙领着行李,寒暄地送到房间,热情地介绍着热水器的用法。我们都倦了,肚子却是咕噜咕噜的。要了两壶热水,泡了包方便面。热水器的水不是很热,冲冲洗了个温水澡,上网给大伙发了条平安到达的微信,接着喝个面汤饱肚,睡了。

内罗毕的第一天,清晨是在嘈杂的货车声音里醒来的。这一晚,想着只是过路,我们的旅馆不是选在城市热闹的游客中心,而是离机场不远的一处交通要道。楼下,大货车一辆接似一辆,急促又繁忙,轰隆隆的驶过,平静两分钟,又是一阵轰鸣。看看表,才清晨四点钟。再也睡不着,躺在床上无聊地上网,偶尔看到小伙伴欢欢的平安帖,“晴天霹雳!。。。妈呀,睡了,梦里哭醒的节奏。。。”想来她的朋友圈正忙着点赞吧。这出师不利的行李,深深地伤了欢欢的心。

再后来,隔壁先是一阵窸窸窣窣,后来叮叮当当,锅碗瓢盆声音越来越清楚。昨晚虫儿说我们这间房就在厨房旁边,我倒没有注意到,这会儿算是验证了。早知道,昨晚泡面的时候,应该顺个抄个鸡蛋了。

不用闹钟,也知道该起床了。

洗漱之后,沿着弯弯的旋梯走上天台,来的我们早餐的地方。确是登高一览的好地方。天气有些阴沉,倒也没有雨。远处,城市主城区,粗矮的混凝土建筑群,杂乱的高高低低排开,没有丝毫的特色。一大早,小伙伴们倒是早早就座了,气色都不错。等餐的时候,四下打量了一番,旅馆的装饰多少有些非洲的特色,原木的桌椅,门厅的装饰,如果不是窗外路上轰隆隆的噪音,这家旅馆也许算不错的选择。内罗毕大而居不易,选择一家性价比好的住所,要花点心思。

早餐也算丰富,鲜果果汁鸡蛋火腿,面面俱到,中规中矩。两个伙计服务着。这儿的红茶要比咖啡更有味道。调些奶,慢慢兑成一杯奶茶,暖暖地喝到胃里,真正的一天就算开始了。
