雪梅:今天买的书真多,我都快累死了,我们到那边坐一会儿再走吧。

同事:好的。那我们到那个茶馆去喝点儿东西。

雪梅:看,我买了一本介绍中国建筑的书,不错吧。

同事:给我看看,不错,里边还有很多图片呢。

雪梅:(接过书)你看,四合院,我一直对这样的建筑很感兴趣,你以前住过四合院吗?

同事:没有,我们家以前一直住楼房,不过我有朋友就住在四合院里。

雪梅:说到四合院啊,我还想起一件有意思的事情来呢。(边说边笑)

同事:什么事情啊?看把你乐的。

雪梅:我刚到中国的时候,有一天闲着没事儿,觉得闷得慌,就顺路溜达到一个小胡同去了。

同事:那里边很窄吧?

雪梅:没错,里边有一个院子,开着门,我就忍不住走了进去,想去看看。

同事:真的吗?没有人撵你吗?

雪梅:没有,不过里边出来个人问我,你找谁,吓得我赶紧溜掉了。

同事:哈哈,碰了个钉子吧。

雪梅:这我倒不在乎,只可惜我没能好好看看那个院子。

同事:你这么感兴趣的话,不如我带你去一个地方看看吧。

雪梅:那太好了。

同事:我说的地方离这儿倒不远,要不我们现在就过去?

雪梅:好,我们走吧。

(到参观地)

同事:雪梅,这就是我说的地方。

雪梅:这里的胡同可真多,我们从哪儿开始啊?我的导游小姐?

同事:(清清嗓子)恩,俗话说,这北京啊,是有名的胡同三千六,无名的胡同赛牛毛。

雪梅:哈哈,你还真象这么回事儿。

同事:雪梅,往这儿走。看,这些都是四合院。

雪梅:咱们走近点儿看看。哎,这是门墩儿吗?

同事:对,而且不同的门墩儿也有不同的意思,你从门墩儿就可以知道这家人是做什么工作的。

雪梅:哦,原来是这样的。那一个四合院里可以住四家人吗?

同事:不一定,原来有钱的人是一家人住一个或者好几个四合院,没钱的呢,就很多家人合住一个四合院。

雪梅:那这儿的四合院还和以前一样吗?

同事:不,已经有很大的不同,大部分四合院的格局都已经改变了。

雪梅:你看,那还有空调,看来四合院的生活也变得现代化了。

同事:在我看来,这儿无论怎么变,都是北京生活最重要的代表。
