Taking a High-Speed Train Trip
This weekend, it was a most unforgettable and joyous thing for Yangyang to take a trip with his parents on a high-speed train. His parents were usually very busy at work, so they had never before agreed to his request to travel on a high-speed train. But this time they did.
Just as the sky was brightening on Saturday morning, Yangyang and his family shouldered their traveling bags, and left home.
Today they were to take a high-speed train from Beijing to Tianjin; then they were to take another one from Tianjin to Shanghai. The following day they were to return to Beijing on another high-speed train. In the short time of two days they would travel two thousand kilometers there and back. What made the trip even more exciting for Yangyang was the fact that it would be his first journey by high-speed rail. What would it be like? What kind of experience would it be to travel by high-speed train? Yangyang had previously only seen it on television and in pictorials.
Mother, Father and Yangyang soon arrived at Beijing South Railway Station. Father pointed to a high-speed train waiting by a platform, and said, “Yangyang, that is a high-speed train. What does it look like to you?”
Yangyang replied, “It looks like a big white shark or a space ship.”
Pleased, Father said, “It not only looks like a space ship; it has a special speed. It is the fastest train in the world. It only takes thirty minutes to travel from Beijing to Tianjin.”
On board the high-speed train Yangyang and his parents observed a small experiment: On the small table in front of them was a glass full of water, but from the time the train started until it reached its destination not a drop of water was spilled. This led Mother to remark that the high-speed train was both fast and stable.
In Tianjin Yangyang played in the amusement park and enjoyed tasting the famous local snacks known as goubuli baozi and damahua. After lunch, the family boarded a high-speed train again, and arrived in Shanghai three hours later, in the evening. The following morning, Yangyang went with his parents to Disneyland, and sampled famous snacks at the City God Temple of Shanghai. In the afternoon they boarded another high-speed train at Shanghai Hongqiao Station. At seven o’clock in the evening they arrived back at their home in Beijing.
在天津阳阳玩了游乐场，还品尝了有名的甘旨小吃 “狗不理 ”包子和 “大麻花 ”，午饭后他们又乘坐高铁只用了 3个小时在黄昏时分抵达了上海。第二天上午阳阳随父母观赏游玩了迪士尼乐土，还品尝了上海有名的城隍庙小吃。下午他们赶到上海虹桥站乘坐高铁，于晚上七点回来了北京家中。
Noticing that Yangyang was not a bit tired, Father said to him, “Yangyang, do you know that in the past two days, we took the Jingjin (Beijing-Tianjin) Intercity High-Speed Train and the Jinghu (Beijing-Shanghai) Intercity High-Speed Train? The Jingjin High-Speed Train was the first one designed and made entirely by our country, and the Jinghu is well known as the farthest and fastest of any high-speed train in the world.”
Yangyang asked, “Are China’s high-speed trains the best in the world?” Mother said, smiling: “Yes. And our country is going to build many more high-speed rail tracks, and help foreign friends build them, too.” Yangyang threw up his hands in excitement, and, giving his mother a five, said, “Mama, next time let us take a trip abroad by high-speed train.” His parents laughed heartily. Yangyang and his parents wound up their high-speed train trip with cheerful chatter.
正如 CHN Stories 在考前剖析中所说到的，现阶段高考关于传统文明的调查现已从人文素质向国家情怀过渡。考生关于传统文明只是做到了解现已不够了，而是要愈加重视叙述我国故事的才能。
