       阿布瑞植物园是加纳最著名的旅游景点之一,奇花异草,珍稀植物,应有尽有,甚是壮观。植物园就坐落于总部小旅馆的旁边,近水楼台,来加纳的第三天就有幸一游。应该说公园很大,但基础设施简陋,园内道路和房屋早已年久失修,但这些不是问题,到公园的目的不是看那些僵硬的人工建筑,而是欣赏自然之美。

距离公园后门不远处,有一颗双头棕榈,甚是奇特,引人注目,令人困惑。表面看有两个树头,但仔细观察会发现实际上是一对孪生树,一棵树匍匐地上,另一棵挺立于地面。这两棵树浑然天成,绝非人工所为,让人不禁感慨大自然的鬼斧神工!

初次游览阿布里植物园——忆加纳(三)FIRST VISIT TO ABURI BOTANIC GARDEN - 飚 - 飚

  在一处拐角,伫立着一株形状奇特的植物。这是一株龙舌兰,长长卷曲的叶片镶嵌着金边,煞是惹眼。令人遗憾的是,一些游客在上面刻上名字,将一株完美的植物弄得满目疮痍,面目全非。刻上那愚蠢的名字意义何在?证明自己来过吗?谁又会在意呢?这么做只会给它带来伤害。如果人人效仿,可想这株植物能否存活!尽管看似不是什么大事,但却和人与自然的关系紧密相连。许多人认为自己是大自然的主宰,想控制一切,但他们不明白人类只是自然地一部分,不尊重自然迟早会受到惩罚,历史已不止一次地证明了这一点。

    走在鹅卵石铺的小路上,迎面遇到一颗非常高大的树,树干爬满寄生植物。对比起来,旁边两层高的房子就像玩具一样。这棵树一定已经存活几百年了,粗壮的树干显示它还处在壮年,也不知它还能生存多久,不过千年以上应该没问题。站在树下,你会感觉自己是那么的渺小,微不足道,不由得你不感慨自然的伟大,一股敬畏之情油然而生。此情此景下,你一定希望自己变成这么一棵树,将树根深深地扎入地下,尽情伸展枝叶呼吸新鲜空气,享受自然母亲的恩泽。

    Early in the morning the Next day, the manager asked me to interpret for a consultant meeting. To be frank, I was a little worried because my awkward experience in the airport yesterday. I couldn't understand Ghanian English very well, how could I make interpretation for them?   

    Anyway I was the interpreter, I had to do it without any alternatives. A little nervious, I came to the meeting room and said hello to erveryone, and then began to make the interpretation. It was not so bad as I had though, with very careful attention, I was able to cope with the accent, after all I was professional. Gradurally, I grasped their way of pronunciation and knew how to make adjustment to match English phonological system.

    It tured out the interpretation was successful, though some consturction terms were brand new to me, with some explanation from the both sides, I finished my first task sub-perfectly.

    The third day our manager arranged me to visit famous Ghana Botanic Garden which was just by the headquarters. It was very big I should say, but the infrastructure was shabby. The garden walls were old and fragmentary, and the gate was just a kind of wooden fence. Inside the road was at least 10 years old with little maintance. But these were not important for the reason to be here was not for artificial things but natural beauty. Accompanied by our chef started my romantic tropical garden sightseeing. What impressed me most was a two-head palm tree which was not far from the back entrance from which we came in. The tree was really comfusing. Apparently, it had two head, but if you looked carefully you could find that actually there were two trees growing trunk by trunk with one crawling on the ground and the other standing firmly. From the picture you could see clearly that they are twin trees. It was absolutely natural without any artificial trace. How crafty the nature is!

   I am a nature lover, so always pay attention to vegetations and animals. When we turned around a corner we found another plant whose form was very peculiar with long and winding leaves. The rims of the leaves were strangely bright yellow colour. Seeing some people carve their name on the leaves, I also got the impulse to do so, but on second thought I gave it up. It was really meaningless to leave your stupid name there, because nobody would care about it  and what you would do could only harm the plant. If everybody did so, the plant would die eventually. Though it seemed not a big issue it closely realated to the relationship between men and nature. A lot of people though they were the master of the nature and wanted to control it, but they didn't understand that human beings were just part of Nature. Irrespect to Nature would result in punishment sooner or later. History has already proven it.

    Walking alone a pebble road, we came across a hugely tall tree tangled by a lot of parasitic plants. Compared with the tree, the two-story house looked just like a toy. The tree must have grown for several hundred years at least I guessed. Standing under the tree, I felt Nature was so great and compared with it I was so trivil and tiny. A kind of respect and revere arose from my heart spontaneously. I really wish I could be the tree  streching my root deeply in the earth and my branches to the fresh air to enjoy the bless of mother nature.

     In the garden, there were a lot of unknown flowers blooming. I took a lot of picutres of them but later I almost lost them all. What a pity! Fortunately I found a lot from the internet. Seeing them every time,  I feel just like going back to the garden to have an intimate contact with it again. Maybe to many people it was just so ordinay but to me as a northener, each and every plant here was completely new. I love this land though it is not my homeland. I hope in the near future I can revisit it, and then maybe I will settle myself down there to enjoy a kind of life full of peace and tranquility.
