2014年5月9日中加野外课程博客

江豚小组

星期五2014年5月9日

今天是我们在中国课程的第一天,一早,加拿大的同学就在酒店隔壁的面包店吃的早餐,然后来到西南大学(SWU)和我们中国学生相会。在王叔和斯图尔特博士对课程进行了简单的介绍后,我们每个人也进行了自我介绍。我们讨论了安全,预期,接下来的两周的计划,以及我们将如何做课程评价。之后,我们在传说中西大最好吃的楠园食堂吃了午饭。无论对于加拿大学生还是中国学生,食堂的食品都是丰富多彩的,尤其是对于加拿大来的同学,午餐吃的都与他们以前吃过的食物不同。

午饭后,我们花了一个半小时,乘坐巴士在下午两点到金刀峡,金刀峡在重庆北碚,意思是“金色的剑”,主要是由石灰石和岩土组成的峡谷,风景非常美,对于加拿大同学来说更是新鲜无比。我们主要采取了徒步旅行,我们大约在海平面以上792米。在金刀峡,我们看到各种各样的物种,包括千足虫、甲虫,许多松树,和大量的竹。我们也注意到,植被的改变主要取决于海拔。例如,当我们到了大约520米,竹子似乎无处不在。沿途有许多瀑布,水滴下来的石头墙的两侧,其中布满苔藓和其他植被。水很凉还有沿途的风景很多,植物清晰(没有藻类)。我们到的那里有一大堆的猴子,他们中的一些被关在笼子里,由于没有其他人团队人在,所以我们和它们很近距离看到了。我们今天走了很多路,有些路有很狭窄的空间去穿过。我们甚至穿过一个洞穴,并且乘船游览了河流的一部分景色。总体来说,对于加拿大同学来说,第一次来到中国就徒步爬山是既幸运又劳累的。而美不胜收的风景更是令大家难以忘怀。

最后,我们重庆著名的刘一手火锅店吃晚餐,这原本普通的重庆第一美食对于加拿大同学来说却是闻所未闻的。从这顿“火锅宴”中,我也深深感受到中加文化的差异,脑花、腰花、毛肚这些我们挚爱的美食在加拿大人眼中却无比奇怪,尤其是加拿大同学中有很多素食主义者和不吃辣椒的,对于这个中华美食他们显得无从下手。尽管他们中的大多数不愿意尝试我们钟爱的肉类食物,但是蔬菜仍然具有着强大的吸引力,藕片、土豆和金针菇也几乎都被加拿大同学一扫而空。最后,在疲倦和兴奋的矛盾中,我们各自回到住所休息,期待着明天更令人兴奋的活动。

Main Locations: SWU Campus, Jing Dao Xia,and Liuyishiu (restaurant).

Today was our first full day in China as aclass. We had breakfast at the bakery next door to our hotel, and thenproceeded to Southwest University (SWU) to meet the rest of the class, theChinese students. Everyone introduced themselves and everyone was very nice andwelcoming to us. After that, Dr. Wang and Dr. Stewart gave us an introductionto the course. We discussed safety, expectations, plans for the next two weeks,and how we will be evaluated in the course. After that, we had lunch at one ofthe SWU campus cafeterias. There were many options and the food was good. Lunchis eaten earlier than we are used to, as are all other meals. Everything isshifted back by a couple of hours.

After lunch, around 2:00 we traveled by busto Jing Dao Xia in Beibei, Chongqing. This took approximately an hour and ahalf. Jing Dao Xia means “golden sabre”, and is a gorge surrounded by limestoneand red clay, and hundreds of incredible trees and other beautiful and lushscenery. Where we began our hike we were approximately 792 metres above sealevel. We saw all kinds of species, including a millipede (Diplopoda spp.), abeetle (Coleoptera spp.), many pine trees (Pinusspp.), and lots of bamboo (Bambuseae spp.). We also noticed that the vegetationchanged rapidly depending on level of elevation. For example, when we got toaround 520 metres, a large amount of bamboo appeared to be growing everywhere.

There were many waterfalls along the wayand water trickling down the sides of the stone walls, which were covered inmoss and other vegetation. The water was very cold and fast-moving in mostareas, so it was clear (no algae).

We also came to a point along the hikewhere there were a whole bunch of monkeys (Macaca).Some of them were caged, others were not, so we were able to get really closeup to some of them.

We walked a lot today, and there were a fewtight spaces to squeeze through along the way. We even went through a cave, andtook a boat ride part of the way down the river. Overall the hike wasincredible. The beauty we saw and experienced could not be captured by photosor conveyed in words.

Finally, we ate dinner at a restaurantcalled Liuyishiu, not far from our hotel. This restaurant specialized in thefamous "hotpot" dish, which is essentially a big pot in the middle ofthe table with boiling soup, in which you place all of your meat and vegetablesto cook. You then remove it and dip it in a sauce which you concoct yourselfbefore the meal using oil, soy sauce, chili sauce, scallions, garlic, and more.It was delicious, and some of it was very spicy, which is the type of food thatChongqing is known for. What makes this dish so unique, at least to NorthAmericans, is that many of the parts of the animal that we might consider"weird" are eaten, such as the brains, intestines, kidneys, and otherorgans. There were also many vegetables to choose from. The selection wasgreat!

Everyone had a great first day in China andis looking forward to the next two weeks!
