留 园

(堂内)

雪梅:对,我在美国看到的就是这样的厅堂。

同事:这是苏州园林中最大的厅堂。

雪梅:这些家具真是太好了。

同事:这些家具都是楠木的,所以这里也叫楠木厅。

雪梅:这两个房间完全不一样,我的眼睛都不够用了。

同事:雪梅,所以这里叫鸳鸯厅。

雪梅:鸳鸯不是鸟的名字吗? 鸳鸯跟这个厅堂有什么关系?

同事:鸳鸯是一种鸟,不过这里的鸳鸯厅呢,是一对的意思。雪梅,你看,这边是男厅,是专门为招待男客人用的,这边是女厅,当然是为了招待女客人用的了。

雪梅:我明白了。

(堂外)

同事:雪梅,渴了吧,咱们去那边买点儿水吧。

雪梅:妇的。对了,今天我想买点儿苏州特产,你能推荐一下儿么?

同事:要说苏州特产真的挺多的,不过人们常买的也就是苏绣、丝绸和檀香扇这几样。

雪梅:吃的东西有什么特产么?

同事:吃的东西也很多,依我看,你最好走的时候再买吃的。

雪梅:好吧。

:同事:走!

(纪念品商店)

同事:雪梅,你看,这就是苏绣。这面和那面是不是一样的?

雪梅:真的,在这么薄的丝绸上绣出这么好的东西,真棒。我要多买点儿,送给朋友,谁看了谁都会喜欢。

售货员:你们好。你们要买苏绣么?这就是双面绣。

同事:雪梅,双面绣是苏绣中独有的技法。

雪梅:苏绣有多长时间的历史了?

售货员:已经有两千多年的历史了。

雪梅:怪不得,苏州姑娘的衣服那么漂亮呢。

同事:雪梅,苏绣不限于服装,以前还有绣的地图呢。

雪梅:我觉得这里卖丝绸的多,穿丝绸的也不少。

售货员:这里是丝绸的故乡嘛!

同事:苏州从元代开始就有了丝绸厂,几乎有7、8百年的历史了。

雪梅:那我一定要多买一些送给朋友。

同事:哎,雪梅,这儿的湖笔也挺有名的,很多外国人都喜欢买。

雪梅:不光是外国人喜欢。临来时,我丈夫还特地嘱咐过我,要买这种笔。

售货员:我们这儿有卖湖笔的。

雪梅:谢谢!不过我们还是先买苏绣吧。

同事:好。
