端午节到了,来看看古人都是怎么出门旅游的?

假期的旅途中,当你看到路边美景时,可能不自觉地就要冒出一两句古诗来。那么问题来了,这些古人是怎么到这儿写下这些诗的?他们是怎么旅游的呢?<br>(明)徐渭《驴背吟诗图》<br>其实中国文字中很早就产生了用以表达旅游和旅行意思的词汇了。如《周易·观卦》中就有“观国之光”的词语,也就是后来“观光”一词的由来,即旅游的意思。到南北朝时,著名的梁朝诗人沈约在题为《悲哉行》的诗中写道:“旅游媚年春,年春媚游人。”这是迄今所知“旅游” 一词在中国典籍中最早的一次出现。 到了唐代,随社会旅游活动的蓬勃发展,“旅游”一词开始被大量运用。如韦应物的“上国旅游罢,故园生事微”;白居易的“江海漂漂共旅游,一尊相劝散穷愁”等。它们充 …

我的秘密花园3: 天桥记忆之菜市跤场

文:李宝如 《百年京跤》在我年纪尚轻的那个年代,前门外天桥一直是京城的乐园。是平民娱乐之所,同时呢,这里也是南半城生活用品的集散地。 珠市口北有肉市、果子市、粮食店、珠宝市。珠市口南有铺陈市和草市。天桥有菜市、布巷子、粮食市等行业批发市场。北京解放以前,天桥电车总站对面的马路东边儿有一个大菜市,菜市向南是六合宫平民住宅,延伸直至天坛西门北。民国初年,宋哲元为了表现亲民的一面,就在永定门外候庄南厂和天桥地区建了一批低矮的平房称作“平民住宅”,房子修成排一排的,很是规整。爱廉馆官南边儿到天坛西门是粮食市场,在那儿我经常看到一些闲散的人嘴里不停地员手里拿着几块银元,一边走一一边掂着手里的钱发出清脆的 …
