Rather than take the aeroplane all the way, they decided to fly to Vancouver and then take the train west to east across Canada. The thought that they could cross the whole continent was exciting. Their friend, Danny Lin, was waiting at the airport. He was going to take them and their baggage to catch "The True North", the cross-Canada train. On the way to the station, he chatted about their trip. "Youre going to see some great scenery. Going eastward, you’ll pass mountains and thousands of lakes and forests, as well as wide rivers and large cities. Some people have the idea that you can cross Canada in less than five days, but they forget the fact that Canada is 5,500 kilometres from coast to coast. Here in Vancouver, youre in Canadas warmest part. People say it is Canadas most beautiful city, surrounded by mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Skiing in the Rocky Mountains and sailing in the harbour make Vancouver one of Canadas most popular cities to live in. Its population is increasing rapidly. The coast north of Vancouver has some of the oldest and most beautiful forests in the world. It is so wet there that the trees are extremely tall, some measuring over 90 metres." That afternoon aboard the train, the cousins settled down in their seats. Earlier that day, when they crossed the Rocky Mountains, they managed to catch sight of some mountain goats and even a grizzly bear and an eagle. Their next stop was Calgary, which is famous for the Calgary Stampede. Cowboys from all over the world come to compete in the Stampede. Many of them have a gift for riding wild horses and can win thousands of dollars in prizes. After two days travel, the girls began to realize that Canada is quite empty. At school, they had learned that most Canadians live within a few hundred kilometres of the USA border, and Canadas population is only slightly over thirty million, but now they were amazed to see such an empty country. They went through a wheat-growing province and saw farms that covered thousands of acres. After dinner, they were back in an urban area, the busy port city of Thunder Bay at the top of the Great Lakes. The girls were surprised at the fact that ocean ships can sail up the Great Lakes. Because of the Great Lakes, they learned, Canada has more fresh water than any other country in the world. In fact, it has one-third of the worlds total fresh water,and much of it is in the Great Lakes. That night as they slept, the train rushed across the top of Lake Superior, through the great forests and southward towards Toronto. "真北方"之旅 李黛玉和她的表妹刘倩要去加拿大大西洋海岸的蒙特利尔市看望他们的表兄妹。 他们不

想一路乘飞机,而决定先飞到温哥华,再从西海岸乘火车横穿加拿大到达东海岸。要横穿整 个大陆的想法很是令人兴奋。 朋友林丹妮,在机场等候她们。他要带着她们和行李去火车站乘坐横穿加拿大的"真北 方"号列车。在去火车站的路上,林丹妮聊起了她们的旅程,"你们沿途将会看见美丽壮阔的 风景。一路向东行,你们会经过一座座山脉,上千个湖泊,森林还有宽阔的河流和许多大城 市。有人想在不到五天的时间里穿越加拿大,他们忘记了加拿大从东海岸到西海岸有 5500 千米。这儿,温哥华,是加拿大最美丽的城市,被大山和太平洋环抱。落基山脉可以滑雪, 海港供你们扬帆, 这些使得温哥华是加拿大最受欢迎的居住城市之一。 这个城市的人口增长 很快。在温哥华北面的海岸上保存着世界上最古老,最美丽的森林。那儿的湿度很大,所以 树都长得特别高,一些高达 90 多米。 那天下午表姐妹俩才登上火车落了座。那天早些时候,当他们穿越落基山脉时,他们设 法看见了野山羊,甚至还看见了一只大灰熊和一只鹰。她们的下一站是卡尔加里,这个城市 因"大西部赛马会"而闻名。来自世界各地的牛仔们来参加赛马会比赛。他们在许多人都有骑 野马的才能,他们能赢得几千美元的奖金。 两天后,他们开始意识到加拿大人烟稀少。他们在学校学过,大多数加拿大人居住在靠 近美国几百千米以内的边境地带, 加拿大的人口也只有三千万多一点。 但是现在看到这么空 旷的国家,她们很惊讶。她们穿过一个种植小麦的省份,他们看到了面积有数千平方千米的 农场。晚饭后,他们又回到城市,位于五大湖区最北端的繁忙的港口城市,桑德湾。巨大的 海轮,可以开到五大湖,让表姐妹俩感到吃惊。他们知道,因为五大湖,加拿大的淡水比世 界上任何其他国家都要多。事实上,加拿大拥有全世界三分之一的淡水量,其中大部分都储 蓄在五大湖泊里。 那天夜里她们睡着了,火车越过苏必利尔湖北部,穿过大森林,朝南向多伦多飞驰着。 "THE TURE NORTH"‖FROM TORONTO TO MONTREAL The next morning the bushes and maple trees outside their windows were red, gold and orange, and there was frost on the ground, confirming that fall had arrived in Canada. Around noon they arrived in Toronto, the biggest and most wealthy city in Canada. They were not leaving for Montreal until later, so they went on a tour of the city. They went up the tall CN Tower and looked across the lake. In the distance, they could see the misty cloud that rose from the great Niagara Falls, which is on the south side of the lake. The water flows into the Niagara River and over the falls on its way to the sea. They saw the covered stadium, home of several famous basketball teams. As they walked north from the harbour area, Li Daiyu said, "Lin Fei, one of my mothers old schoolmates, lives here. I should phone her from a telephone booth." They met Lin Fei around dusk in downtown Chinatown, one of the three in Toronto. Over dinner at a restaurant called The Pink Pearl, the cousins chatted with Lin Fei, who had moved to Canada many years earlier. "We can get good Cantonese food here," Lin Fei told them, "because

most of the Chinese people here come from South China, especially Hong Kong. Its too bad you cant go as far as Ottawa, Canadas capital. Its approximately four hundred kilometres northeast of Toronto, so it would take too long." The train left late that night and arrived in Montreal at dawn the next morning. At the station, people everywhere were speaking French. There were signs and ads in French, but some of them had English words in smaller letters. "We dont leave until this evening," said Liu Qian. "Lets go downtown. Old Montreal is close to the water." They spent the afternoon in lovely shops and visiting artists in their workplaces beside the water. As they sat in a buffet restaurant looking over the broad St Lawrence River, a young man sat down with them. "Hello, my name is Henri. Im a student at the university nearby," he said, "and I was wondering where you are from." The girls told him they were on a train trip across Canada and that they had only one day in Montreal. "Thats too bad," he said. "Montreal is a city with wonderful restaurants and clubs. Most of us speak both English and French, but the city has French culture and traditions. We love good coffee, good bread and good music." That night as the train was speeding along the St Lawrence River toward the Gulf of St Lawrence and down to the distant east coast, the cousins dreamed of French restaurants and red maple leaves. 多伦多一蒙特利尔"真北方"列车 第二天早上,在她们的车窗外到处是灌木丛和枫树,挂满朱红、 赤金和情黄色的叶子,地面 覆盖上了一片薄霜,表明秋天已经来到了加拿大。 中午时分,她们来到多伦多一一加拿大最大、最富有的城市。她们要晚些时候才动身去 蒙特利尔,因 此就在多伦多市内游览了一番。 她们登上了高高的加拿大国家电视塔,俯瞰着下 面的湖水。远处,她们可 以看到湖的南边尼亚加拉大瀑布上方升腾着的雾需。湖水流人尼亚 加拉河,再经过大瀑布,流向大海。 她们看到了加顶的大型运动场,那是几支著名的篮球队的驻地。当她们从港口区向北走 的时候,李黛予说"我妈妈的老同学林菲住在这里,我该到电话亭去给她打个电话。" 大约黄昏时分,她们在市区的中国城遇到了林菲,这是多伦多三个中国城中的一个。在一 个名叫"海 珠酒楼"的餐馆里用餐时,表姐妹和许多年前就移居加拿大的林菲闲聊了起来。林 菲告诉她们"我们在 这里可以吃到很好的广东菜,因为这里的大多数中国人来自中国南方,尤 其是香港。很可惜你们不能一直走到加拿大的首都渥太华。它在多伦多东北方约 400 公里, 要去那儿花时间就太多了。" 火车在那夜晚些时候起程了,第二天黎明到达了蒙特利尔。火车站里,人们到处说的是法 语。指示牌 和广告也都是法文的,但有些标注了小字体的英文。刘倩说"我们要到傍晚才动 身,不如到市区去走走。 蒙特利尔老区是在水边上的。"整个下午她们穿梭于布局可爱的商 店,还拜访了水边工作坊里的艺术家。当她们坐在咖啡馆里眺望广阔的圣劳伦斯河时,一个年

轻人坐在了她们的身边,"你们好,我叫亨利,是这里的大学生。请问你们从哪儿来? "姑娘们告 诉他,她们是坐火车来旅游的,要横穿加拿大,在蒙特利尔只待一天。他说"这太糟糕了,蒙特利 尔这个城市有极好的餐馆和俱乐部。我们大多数人既说英语也说法语,但是这座城市具有法 国文化和传统。我们喜欢好咖啡,好面包和好音乐。" 那天晚上,火车沿着圣劳伦斯河疾驰,朝圣劳伦斯湾驶去,一直开到远方的东海岸,姐妹两 个做梦都 在想着法国餐馆和红色枫叶。
