遊罷花都


回到上海了。巴黎待了一天半,逛得腿快斷了,到底是誰發明時尚這玩意兒... 發生的好事是早上在麥當勞的無線上網竟然是免費的,在歐洲還有免費這種好事,感動。

底下再來雜錄這次旅途的見聞:

義大利展會上有人會到每個攤位毛遂自薦當英義翻譯(的確義大利這麼大的國際商展上,會說英語的義大利採購商比例還真是不高耶)。到了可愛的義大利男生家,他爸爸說,呃,我想我們不需要你的服務,我們都會說英文,大兒子會說五種語言,小兒子會說四種語言...

Helen Mirren: ... Americans are always saying, "Oh, I love your accent." I don't have the bloody accent. You've got the accent. [Laughter] No, I never say that. I say, "Thank you so much. How sweet of you." --《Newsweek》

Angela Merkel: The European Union is founded on values that all of us share - respect for human rights, freedom, justice, democracy and the rule of law - values that evolved progressively over the centuries and owe much to the Christian tradition and the Enlightenment. --《The World in 2007》 (Merkel might have intended to make a factual statement, but I somehow just lost my appetite to reading further her Agenda for Europe after this sentence.)

So if you're careful you won't get hurt.
But if you're careful all the time then what's it worth.

阿川: ... 可是有些人要把一生托付給我,我沒有能力承擔。
婉玉: 如果有的人什麼責任都不要你承擔呢?你會接受她嗎?
阿川:   這句話就是最大的責任。
