熱鬧的八角街

0


八角街是旅遊區,因為這裏擺\放了各式各樣的藏族紀念品攤檔;八角街亦是藏民轉經的中心地,因為著名的大昭寺正位於這裏﹗

到了拉薩,當然想第一時間參觀聞名世界的布達拉宮,可惜布達拉宮限制每天的參觀人數,要一大早輪籌才可以進內。由於連日來趕車,在拉薩的第一天便自然「嘆慢板」,睡至下午才往外遊玩,當大家到趕到布達拉宮時,才知參觀限額已滿,只有明天請早,於是呼大家便轉往旅店附近的八角街遊玩。

八角街是圍著大昭寺而建的轉經道,不少藏民拿著轉經筒,一邊轉一邊唸經,在大昭寺門外,更有無數虔誠藏民,五體投地跪拜佛祖,十分壯觀。

由於不少遊客慕名來此參觀,久而久之豎立了無數紀念品攤擋,有極受歡迎的藏族首飾,富有宗教味道的雕刻,還有藏族藝術唐卡,令八角街變了一個遊客區,遊客數目不比藏民少,神聖的廟宇聖地淪為巿集。事實上,我在拉薩逗留的日子裏,幾乎每天也出入八角街,除了頭一天是用來體會藏民的宗教風俗外,其餘時間全用來搜刮紀念品。就連馬、陳暉等大男孩,在八角街也變成小師奶,瘋狂地向攤販殺價,然後晚上在旅館時,自豪地向大家展示自己的戰利品,三元一顆天珠,一元一個藏牌吊咀,廿多元一把藏刀等。所以,若沒有充足的「銀彈」,來到八角街必定後悔。

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。」
