卡拉科尔

我投宿的旅舍 - Yak Tour,有种旧时俄式风味,外表不似旅舍。



卡拉科尔 - Karokol 一点也不像典型的徒步重镇。

人们前往阿尔泰山前,都要先在这里逗留,
可这里的登山用品店是那样少,这里的徒步资料也不完善,
要如何开始登山前的装备?我毫无头绪。
加上南部暴乱,旅人走的走,逃的逃,好似全世界只有我一个人来吉尔吉斯旅行。

这座山脚小镇寂静得有点过分,感激天气一直很好,
每天阳光灿烂,雪山吹来凉凉的风,一点不觉热。



家家户户喜欢种玫瑰,红艳艳的开满篱笆。



天空很蓝很蓝,自从离开蒙古后再没有见过,
一棵棵松树耸立在远方绿山,徒步在这样的山该是何等风光?

卡拉科尔很少见到马路,脚下踩着的多是原始的泥土,
幸好车子不多,不会尘土飞扬,
没有交通灯,也没有高楼大厦,傍晚六点过后街上就很安静。

小镇采用苏联时期的城镇规划,四四方方,
房子看出来有岁月的痕迹,可是好漂亮,
木头老屋,淳淳朴朴的,门前一定种花,好山好水,花开特灿烂。

早上我喜欢散步,欣赏每间房子的窗口,
传统精致的老手艺蔓延在小小的窗棂,屋檐,门廊上。
天气舒服得不知疲累,总是不觉中走到了城镇外围。






留念的始终是人。
这个国度的人民善良得叫人感动。

走在路上,小孩会拉我去踢足球,虽然我踢得很烂,
只是随意乱逛,一个陌生人跑来跟我聊天,问我是不是日本人,
谈完天跟我说 Bye Bye 然后再跑回家,只为了跟我聊天?
更别提每次的问路,他们就算不懂也绝不丢下你,
一定打电话问朋友,几乎要亲自带我到目的地了,搞得我非常不好意思。

可爱的吉尔吉斯,美丽的吉尔吉斯,
溶了我心中寒,荒凉的小镇,因为有了人的味道而温暖起来。
我无从回报,也许要等来年冬尽雪溶之时吧。



荒凉的小镇,因为有了人情而温暖。

  3. ‘好似全世界只有我一个人来吉尔吉斯旅行’
    现在要找酱的地方很难了,美丽的地方有很多,但只要有太多的游客,美丽的地方就会失去它的魅力了。(我是那么想的)

    1. 在马来西亚,吉兰丹和登嘉楼还有一些些荒凉的味道,我的家乡玻璃市更是荒凉(可是很无聊)。
      沙巴和沙拉越我不太了解,可是感觉也是有一点点荒凉,山高皇帝远的味道,上次到亚庇有感~
