旅程第十天:未開發的乾陵

0


西安是多個朝代的首都,有不少皇帝陵墓,唐十八陵中尤以唐高宗及武則天合葬的乾陵最出名,但由於絕大部分尚未開發,看頭大減。

西安有三條旅遊線,一條是東線,即兵馬俑方向,一條是西線,即是乾陵,最後一條到華山。這天我們選擇玩西線。

每天只有早上八時一班車到乾陵,我們恐怕人滿去不成乾陵,七時半便到達車站。但原來到乾陵的人少得可憐,車子已經不大,只坐約三十人,但也不滿。回程時間本來是下午三時,又由於人少,想早點收工的售票員,便向大家提議提早回程,但要下午一時半便開車返歸,但我後來發現,一時半開車已經太遲了,因為乾陵實在沒有什麼好看。

自然風景的話,愈未開發便愈想開,但關乎文化、文物的,還是開發了較好,否則便沒有看頭。

由於中國恐怕破壞文物,西安絕大部分陵墓尚未開發,不但秦始皇陵如是,乾陵亦然,只是一個公園而已。一進內便是長長的仲翁路,像明孝陵一樣,兩邊豎立了多個仲翁石像,但在文革時又被破壞,有些石像慘被斬頭。仲翁路後有一個無字碑,再進內便是一個小丘,傳聞墓室便是在山丘下。在上山途上,一個當地導遊竟指著畫了交叉的石塊說,從那裏鑽進內,便能通到墓室,價值連城的寶藏便在內。信不信由大家,如果那裏真是墓室入口,寶藏不被盜光才怪﹗

西安已開發的陵墓只有數個,乾陵附近的永泰公主墓是其中之一,可以從墓道走進墓室,看到公主的棺,但由於永泰公主並非甚麼大人物,墓室極小,棺木又被封起來,其實是沒有什麼好看,整個西安西線旅程,便在短短兩、三小時完成,大家下午三時半便回到西安巿。早知如此,去華山應該會較好玩,起碼可以論劍。

回到香港後,我的風水師傅正值搞旅行團,其中一個提議地點便是看乾陵風水,那時便大嘆走寶,如果我已經學識看巒頭風水,便能仔細研究參考,不會浪費此行。

乾陵由於尚未開發,門口石像是唯一參觀景點。

Chee

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」
