  Queen’s University Campus Fort Henry sunset ceremony 

 

     Today we planned an excursion in the Kingston region.  Our excursion took us to three locations in the Kingston area: a boat cruise along the Saint Lawrence, a wastewater treatment plant for the Kingston area, a tour led by some Queen’s natives of Queen’s University campus, and to top off the day- a live performance at Fort Henry for the sunset ceremony. 

 今天我们的目的地是金斯顿。这次短途旅行我们去了三个主要景点:我们搭船欣赏了圣劳伦斯河,参观了污水处理厂和女王大学本部校区。我们的行程以观看在Fort Henry的夕阳仪式中结束。

 We set out early arriving in Gananoque to cruise the Saint Lawrence.  We learned on board of the environmental and ecological aspects that have been a part of this waterway since its creation.  The tour took us through the Thousand Islands (which apparently do indeed have a thousand islands), through cottages and various national parks. We witnessed firsthand an interesting interdigitation between settled land and wildlife, as birds flew about us on our trip.  We discussed with our friends from China the common habit of ‘cottaging’ in Canada, whereby many people like to take advantage of the beautiful and rustic freshwater lakes, particularly in Ontario.  One of the negative aspects of this trend is that people favor building on shorelines, which can lead to the destruction of critical shoreline habitat that merges land and water. 

      我们起了个大早,出发去到Gananoque以参观圣劳伦斯河。在船上我们了解到圣劳伦斯河的水路在它建立之初就考虑到了其环境和生态意义。我们搭乘的游船载着我们经过了Thousand Islands(它不是徒有虚名的,确实是由1000个岛屿组成),私人别墅以及国家公园。我们亲眼见证了居住区与无人区的完美结合。整个旅途过程中始终有鸟儿在我们的头顶盘旋。加拿大的同学们向我们介绍了加拿大人热爱拥有别墅的习惯,因为在那里人们可以享受美丽并且淳朴的淡水湖,特别是在安大略省。但是这种习惯也有它不利于生态的一面,由于人们喜欢把别墅建在岸边,这就很容易导致对于岸边栖息地和水质的破坏。

 We then travelled to the Raven’s View Wastewater Treatment Plant, which filters water in the city of Kingston.  We were taken on a guided tour through the secondary system, which takes the sewage from the municipality and brings out a product that is clean enough to enter into back into the waterway.  We were interested to learn that thirty percent of the energy used by the plant comes from burning of digestor gas from some of the sewage input.

 之后我们参观了Raven污水处理厂,这个污水处理厂过滤金斯顿的生活用水。在工厂技术人员的带领下,我们参观了其中二级处理的部分——将污泥从混合物中分离并且使得剩余物质在进入水路时足够清洁。当我们知道工厂中30%的能源来源于焚烧污水排入时产生的气体时,我们觉得很兴奋。

  We were given a tour of Queen’s University, through the limestone buildings covered with vines.  We all grabbed a bite to eat at some of the many delicious restaurants that can be found in Kingston (to name a few places some people went- we covered bases of Korean, German, Canadian local farmed food and hotpot).  After dinner, we travelled to our final destination- Fort Henry.  Before getting to our destination, MingZhi decided to treat everyone to an ice cappuccino (we love you).   Filing out of the bus, we made our way to the ancient Fort Henry. As the sun hung low in the sky, we found our seats and the ceremony began.  We were impressed by the show- we had not expected the impressive musical abilities of the participants in the ceremony.  We even had the chance to engage in the events: Huang Shengnan, Bridget (mom), Li Chen, Jin Lei jumped up and learned how to properly march in a Fort Henry army fashion.  Overall, the ceremony was fantastic- including musical performance, military marching, and an astounding battle reenactment. 

大约330分,我们抵达了以石灰岩建筑为主并且覆盖着大面积藤本植物的女王大学本部校区。我们组队去品尝了在金斯顿可以找到的美食(韩国料理,德国菜,加拿大当地风味以及火锅)。晚饭后,我们去到了Fort Henry。在此之前我们的助教铭志请我们吃了冰镇卡布基诺(我们大爱铭志)。由于到达时间尚早,我们在Henry Fort周围游览了一番。当太阳慢慢地降落,我们找到我们的座位,仪式开始了。我们都被震惊了——我们都没有想到参加仪式的乐手有如此富有感染力的音乐天赋。黄圣楠、Bridget(妈妈)、李晨、金蕾还亲身参与学习了Fort Henry的军姿。总之,这个包含了音乐表演,阅兵仪式和精彩的战役再现的仪式很美妙。

 

       WHAT A DAY. 

       这一天真是很美好
