南非,一

飞了24小时,终于到了约翰内斯堡, Joburg,当地人的简称。出来,时差中,晕晕乎乎地,看着面前的接人队伍,几十个密密麻麻举着的牌,跟检阅似的,边走着,一个个地扫过去,再走回,再扫一遍,再走回,又扫了一遍。没有我的名字,或者我的住处的名字, Highland View Guesthouse,据说是五星级的客栈。

打了电话过去。客栈经理电话里非常悲伤非常抱歉地说,“对不起,我们的店主人今天下午心脏病发作,酒店必须关门。我们的司机马上到,他会接你去另一个酒店。非常抱歉,非常抱歉,非常抱歉。”

我心里叹了口气,想,唉,一定是世界杯让它们接了太多订单,而作为被认为比较好说话不闹事的亚洲人,这酒店想把我踢到另一个酒店。

”真对不起,听到你们店主人心脏病发作的消息。不过,我不会去另一个酒店。 我现在过来你们这儿。”

“但是我们这儿不营业了!关门了!老板心脏病发作了!“

”没关系。我过来看一眼。“ 我说。”真难过,听到你们老板心脏病发作的事。“

司机终于出现。那是个挺老实的黑人司机,虽然他说的英文我听不太懂。从机场到客栈的路上,司机又接到了几个电话。”客栈关门了“”不要浪费宝贵时间过来了“等等。他转头,很抱歉地说。

我说,”没关系,我过去看看。“

客栈在Kensington的山上。大门紧闭。门口贴了张告示,”酒店主人心脏病发作,客栈关闭。” 按了几下门铃,没有人应答。

我拿手指抹了抹告示,闻了下,挺新鲜的味道。从门缝里看里面,隐约的灯光。想,从机场到这儿,半个多小时,打印这么个新告示出来,效率还行,还挺用心。

我告诉司机,“你给我不断地拨他们电话。” 一边按着门铃。

一会儿,一个30左右的白人经理出来了,他看上去极紧张。

“真对不起,客栈关门了。真对不起,真的,真的关门了。”

我拿出手机,打开视频录制,举起来,对着他,说,“真对不起,听到这消息。能不能麻烦你再说一遍,你的客栈怎么了?”

接下来的一个小时,演着一出极无聊的戏。我就像是一个早就知道结果的观众,又必须演着一个无趣的角色。我希望这客栈真的是关门了,希望我是判断错了,是我错怪了他们。

可惜,事实往往如此让人失望:我的判断是对的。

最终,经理在几乎精神崩溃中,承认了客栈其实是接了重复的预订。解决方案是,他给我安排了另一个更好的五星级的家庭客栈,先住一晚。然后的两晚回到这个客栈,免费。

在24小时的旅程和一个小时的斗智斗勇后,我们又回到了那个几乎同样紧张崩溃的司机车上,开了半个多小时的夜路,到了约翰内斯堡的另一端。93 on Jan Smuts,约堡动物园的边上,非常好的一个Boutique Hotel。

这个酒店的女主人,非常热情的Caren,听着我们的故事,瞪大了眼睛,说,“两周前有两对德国夫妇也是从他们那儿转过来的。说是店主人得了心脏病,客栈关门了!” 被认为容易可欺、直来直往的德国人。

“店主人两个星期里两次心脏病发作,还活着,真是一个很强悍的人哪。”我说。

我们在热情好客的93 on Jan Smuts住了三晚,付费,再也没回去那个免费两晚的Highland View Guesthouse。

  29. You have taken offence to my referring to documented historical uses of gun control. You have taken offence to my questioning your credibility and academic integrity when you refused to back up your claims or seek to disprove mine. You have taken offence to my analysis of your positions when you clearly stated that domestic violence against women was a serious human rights abuse but said no such thing about the men who are victims of any kind of violence, domestic or otherwise.

  30. I thought it was going to be some boring aged submit, but it definitely compensated for my time. I’ll post a website link to this page on my blog. I’m certain my website visitors will find that pretty useful.

  32. Either: 1. Polanski uh, did like real good work, and raping a child is like an indescrection or 2. we could just be hateful jerks who hate genius and dont like to rape kids despite the fact that kids who get raped sometimes dont even want to deal with, like, you know rape.

  33. ???It is hard to know what the Saudis intend to achieve in terms of specific military objectives,??? Kristian Ulrichsen, Kuwait Research Fellow at the London School of Economics, wrote in an e-mail. They ???would be well-advised??? not to get involved in what ???is rapidly becoming a failed state??? in Yemen.

  34. A further support from the federal level will be much better efficiency standards for buildings, vehicles, and appliances. New mandates in these areas can be balanced by this low-cost way of financing efficiency improvements in order to meet the standards.

  35. Larry Gebert, Bob Anthony, Bob Peters, and Bill Bailey would be good interviews as well. They have a lot of Boise radio and television history to share. Dick Eardley, Paul J., Larry chase, and Marty Holtman may be good as well.

  36. It seems the weather has turned upside down. Up here in New Brunswick the temp has been in the 60s (F, not C), and pouring rain. And there is no snow in the 7-day forecast, which is unusual for this time of the year in this part of the country.

  37. Krystal Portcher or Crystal Porcher is thief buyers beware of purchasing anything or selling anything to this lady, she did a charge back using her cc her email is porch87 at gmail dot com adress is 551 Rosedale Ave Apt 4c Bronx NY, 10473 Congratulations on having 1 of the most sophisticated blogs Ive come throughout in some time!

  41. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  42. I truly appreciate this post. I’ve been looking all over for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thank you again! “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” by Friedrich Nietzsche.

  43. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  44. Fantastic goods from you, man. ??—é???????? | ?????? – é????????è±?,???è·??????‘?”???? I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too great.
