南疆行(二)---吐魯番
2019/11/07 11:21:18瀏覽331|回應0|推薦10

After a short sojourn at Urumqi, we headed for Turpan(Tulufan 吐魯番) via that "romantic" Dabancheng(達坂城).  Along the way between two cities there are thousands of turbines erected on the vast ground of Turpan basin to establish the 2nd largest wind farm of China.   (Wind farms in Taiwan?  Forget it; it is simply a matter of common sense.)

In the evening we arrived at a memorial hall of Kariz canal system(坎兒井).  An interpreter led us to see how had the sicentific culverts of the canal system been built and so drew water of thawed snow from that legendary "flamming mountains" of Tian Shan to the basin and formed a large span of fertile oases.  Is the system a domestic invention of our ancestors in Turpan 2000 years ago(not necessarily Han people), or a borrowed tech sometime from Mid-Asia?  Well, it doesnt matter any more.  Let us just pay our greatest respect to the intelligence of those people in ancient time.  FYI, when Lord Lin Zexu(林則徐) was downgraded and sent to Xinjiang in exile after his "ineptitude" during First Opium War, he spared no efforts in promoting Kariz canal system in Turpan area.

PS Attached below please find the lyrics, popular edtion, of that romantic song 達坂城的姑娘, which has adapted from a Uyghur folk song.  (from Wiki) 

達坂城的石路硬又平啊 西瓜大又甜啊
那裏住的姑娘辮子長啊 能不能搆到地上(兩個眼睛真漂亮)
假如你要嫁人 不要嫁給別人啊 一定要你嫁給我
帶著百萬錢財 領著你的妹妹 跟著我馬車來
杭州城的榧子(梨子)脆又香啊 枇杷大又甜啊
杭州城的姑娘木佬佬的好啊 沒有一個不漂亮(兩個眼睛真漂亮)
假如你討老婆 不要娶別人啊 一定要你娶了我(娶了走)
帶著百輛馬車(百畝田產) 領著你的親隨 跟著我轎子(花轎)來
