雪梅:小王啊,早就想到颐和园来玩儿了,谢谢你今天陪我们一起来。

小王:您别这么说,您太客气了。

小杰:哥哥,这么多门,我们应该从哪一个进去呢?

小王:这个叫东宫门,是颐和园的正门。门口的正中间当年可是皇帝和慈禧太后才能走的路,其他的人要想从这儿进去,没门儿。

小杰:那他们都走哪儿啊?

小王:只能走两边的小门儿。

雪梅:没想到这门也有这么多的讲究。

(进门后)

小杰:这里可真大啊,哥哥,我们该朝哪个方向走啊?

小王:别看颐和园的建筑有三千多间,其实主要是就由三个部分组成的,宫廷区、万寿山和昆明湖。你们想看哪个部分?

雪梅:这些我们都想看,但不知先看哪个好?

小杰:宫廷区?是不是皇帝住的地方?咱们先去那儿看看吧。

小王:好。它是当年慈禧太后和皇帝办公的地方,而且还可以看到慈禧的寝宫呢。

小杰:寝宫?那是什么地方?

小王:哦,“寝”是睡觉的意思,寝宫就是皇帝和太后休息的地方。

雪梅:慈禧和皇帝也住在颐和园?他们不是住在故宫里吗?

小杰:他们是偶尔才来这里度假的吧?

小王:不对,慈禧太后就很喜欢住在这里,有时候一住就是大半年呢。

雪梅:(出了寝宫)这就是著名的长廊了吧?我以前经常在明信片上看到它。

小杰:(看长廊的画)这画的都是什么啊?我都看不懂!

小王:这里边有的画的是西湖风景,有的是民间故事。想完全看懂这些可不太容易。

雪梅:我觉得这长廊设计得很不错,不仅分隔了这边的山和湖,而且看风景的时候还可以防雨防晒。

小王:还真说到点子上了,的确是这样的。

小杰:妈妈,快来看,这边的湖多漂亮啊!

小王:这就是昆明湖。它的形状看起来像个寿桃。而它后边的万寿山呢,就像只蝙蝠。

小杰:蝙蝠?为什么偏偏要像蝙蝠呢?多难看啊?

小王:不知道了吧,这是因为蝙蝠的“蝠”和幸福的“福”发音是一样的。

雪梅:这样设计都是为了图个吉利吧。

小王:这固然有这方面的考虑,不过也能反映出中国园林艺术中的一个重要特点。

小杰:听不懂,听不懂,我们现在就去爬山吧。

小王:好!
