同事女:雪梅啊,这次到西安来出差,真是人生地不熟的,你说咱们先去哪儿逛好呢?

雪梅:我也没什么好主意,我也是第一次来西安。

同事男:你们一定渴了吧,过来喝点水吧。你们看什么呢?别看了,都交给我好了。西安嘛,我熟得很。

同事女:是吗?我看你多半是在吹牛。

同事男:你看你,不相信是不是。这西安啊,好玩儿的地方多了,象什么古城墙啊、大雁塔、小雁塔、华清池、兵马俑、碑林,数都数不过来。

雪梅:看不出来,你还真是个行家。

同事男:那是,我就是个西安通。

(到城墙)

同事男:咱们先到这里看看吧。

雪梅:这是什么地方?

同事男:这是著名的西安古城墙。

雪梅:古城墙,那不就是一堵墙吗?

同事男:走吧,去了你就知道了。

雪梅:这么宽,这哪儿是墙啊,就是一条马路。

同事女:我估计这并排开两辆汽车都够了。

同事男:而且,这墙修得也够结实,几百年了,你们看,还好好的,一点儿事儿都没有。

雪梅:几百年,有那么久吗?

同事男:那当然啦。这里啊,唐朝的时候就有城墙,而现在的这个城墙呢,就是明朝的时候在唐朝城墙的基础上修的。

同事女:这样算下来的话,起码得有六百多年的历史了吧。

同事男:可不是吗。

雪梅:你说为什么要修那么宽的城墙呢?

同事男:西安以前是西部的一个很重要的城市,修这么宽的城墙,我想更多的时候是出于安全的考虑。

雪梅:安全的考虑?

同事男:是啊,你想,这要是打起仗来,多占便宜啊。

同事女:恩,说得有道理。
