沧 浪 亭

(沧浪亭外)

同事:雪梅,我们到了,这里就是沧浪亭了。

沧浪亭是苏州现在最古老的园林之一。

雪梅:那比拙政园时间还长吗?

同事:对,沧浪亭是应该早于拙政园。到现在差不多有一千多年历史了。

雪梅:我都等不及了,咱们快点儿进去看看吧。

同事:好啊!

(沧浪亭内)

同事:雪梅,你发现没有,这个园里是以山为中心修建的。

雪梅:这边是山,那边是水。真有些山林野趣呢。

同事:你说得太好了,沧浪亭的妙处就在于在山水之间建了一个廊子。

雪梅:好像把园子一分为二,分成两个部分。

同事:雪梅,来,你从这些窗口向外看看。

雪梅:哇,真像透过魔镜看到的仙境一般。

同事:不得不佩服古代的园林大师,人工修建的廊子不仅没有破坏自然,还给自然增加了色彩。

雪梅:这是宋代的名园,现存的苏州园林有没有别的朝代的呢?

同事:有,狮子林就是元代的园林。

雪梅:狮子林?听起来好像动物园。

同事:狮子林虽说不是动物园,可也跟动物沾点边儿。有人说狮子林是假山王国。

雪梅:是不是,这里一定有故事或者传说什么的。

同事:你说的没错。那你猜猜为什么要叫狮子林呢?

雪梅:我想是不是那些假山的样子很像狮子?

同事:还真让你给说着了,所以才有了狮子林的名称。

雪梅:对了,我在美国的一个博物馆里见过一个厅堂的模型,说是仿制苏州的什么园里的。

同事:应该是留园,留园的园林建筑里厅堂很典型。

雪梅:我到中国以后,始终没有见过类似的厅堂。

同事:那我们明天就去留园看看吧。

雪梅:好。

同事:好啊,走!
