苏 州

同行男:苏州,一到这里我就想做诗.

女:别抒情了.快给我们雪梅讲讲,她可是第一次来.

雪梅:可不是吗?我一直想来,都没有合适的时间.

同行女:这次正好借开会的机会在这儿多玩几天.

男同行:好好.雪梅,在苏州,你想看点儿什么?

雪梅:我听说苏州园林很有名,我想看看苏州园林、建筑什么的.

男:苏州园林的确相当有名,一年四季游客都特别多.

女:拙政园、留园、网师园、和狮子林被称为苏州四大名园.雪梅,你想先看哪个?

雪梅:这四个我都想去看看,而且我觉得苏州的民居建筑也很有特点.

男:说到苏州的民居那就一定得说到水.

女:当然了,苏州被称作'东方威尼斯'嘛!

雪梅:你们看,那边的房子就很有水乡的特点,咱们去那儿看看吧.

男:好,那咱们就从那儿去拙政园,怎么样?

女:行,太好了.

男:走!

女:这儿的房子都建盖在水边,可真有情趣.

男:所以有古诗说苏州是'人家尽枕河'.

雪梅:这句诗的意思是人家都把河当枕头?

男:对,大概是这个意思吧,房子都建在水边,好像都枕着河似的.

雪梅:古诗真有意思.

女:苏州具有典型的江南水乡的特点.我觉得连色彩都和北方城市不一样.

男:没错,江南水乡的建筑大都是白墙灰瓦,没有北方城市色彩那么浓重.

女:对,苏州的园林建筑,一般说来色彩比较淡雅,而且都比较小巧.

男:没错,苏州园林在大小上和北京的皇家园林根本没法比.

女:这哪儿跟哪儿啊!

雪梅:是啊,这就象拿英国的白金汉宫和比尔盖茨的家比一样.

男:恩,我觉得你们说得对,是不能一起比.
