Monday Morning

(taken by Kris, at Mauri's place, Santa Cruz, Bolivia)


哈尼,你今天有大便臉唷。」漢克說。

小芳聽到的是

“You look like shit today.”

「可不可以不要一早就說大便臉!聽了真的很不舒服!」

In search of Hope

給在家中的半百老翁,

 

長這麼大第一次收到你的來信,感覺十分奇特,請繼續保持,多寫些信來吧。

 
很開心妹妹找到工作了,看看可不可以順便找個好男朋友,希望這次不會做一個月就撐不住了,祝她好運囉!

 

這個我交代的家庭作業,沒想到老翁大半以描述電影內容帶過,先不論。老翁今年看了一百二十九部電影,為何獨挑小津安二郎的作品?是否暗示你也有和片中男主角同要的遭遇?經營婚姻簡單不花俏卻被老翁太太叫做「悶蛋」?老翁太太是否趁我不在時又偷偷欺負古意的老翁?如果有的話,請跟我說,我們現在有這個版面可以報仇,雖然讀者不多但總是能出心中的一口氣啊!

Cusco, Peru
(taken by Hank, at Cusco, Peru)

給在遙遠的玻利維亞的兒子漢克:

 

         天生勞碌,如能歡喜做,甘願受就好,偏偏做久了偶爾也會有不爽的時候。

 

  在一個每年演講近百場的太太旁,不變成啞吧,算萬幸。生來不擅言詞,你知道爸爸的用心實踐,那我就寬心多了。裝忙的事,恐還得繼續下去。

Chicas de los Caporales

西班牙文老師:「下個週末有一個叫做處女瓜達陸培的慶典遊行,你一定要留下來參加!」

 

漢克菜:「處女?遊行?那不是會有很多處女在街上跳舞?太棒了!喔夜!」

 

想像一下三千個處女在街上跳舞,旁邊圍觀的群眾口水流個不停的景象,哈哈!

¿De donde eres?
(taken by Hank, at Cusco, Peru)

話說在到達秘魯第三天,一句西班牙文都不會說的狀況下,在車水馬龍的利馬(Lima, Peru)街上攔了一台計程車。

 

依據經驗,我知道要先問價錢,劈頭就開始喊價。

 

沒想到

Host family in Cusco, Peru

 (taken at my host family in Cusco, Peru)

不知道是幸運還是可憐,活到這把年紀,除了大學住了半年宿舍,後來搬出去自己住兩年外,我從小到大都住在爸媽台北中兩坪半大的房間,就連住外面都離家不到三十分鐘的車程,沒事就可以回家吃老媽做的晚餐,偷拿衛生紙、洗髮精、牙膏等日常用品。我從來沒有寄人籬下的經驗,更不用說什麼分租房子、共繳房租

the Trio
(The owner's friends, taken by Kris, at Cafe Dos X 3, Cusco, Peru)

Café Dos X 3 is a tiny little hole in the wall café in the winding streets of Cusco. It had two tables that held two people each and three diner booths surrounded by orange walls. Inside the only display cabinet were three framed caricatures of some old men. Jazz and classical music played at all times. It felt more like a jazz joint than a café. Right behind the cashier machine was a shelf with hundreds of figurines, from Picachu to tiny elephants, you name it.

 

The owner always hung his glasses right on the ridge of his nose. I have never seen him wear anything else but a plaid shirt, a wool vest and Levi’s jeans. He had this Italian mob boss look to him and with his white moustache and hair flowing, I was drawn to him. He had the charm of importance, mystery and melancholy. He was tall and smoked cigarettes as if they were the very fixation that was going sustain his breathing. The solemn look on him told me many stories in my head. He probably is not married and if he was, he does not have a close relationship with his family. He did not feel like a man with children. Maybe he was a mafia boss who ran away from Italy to find peace in Peru. I do not know. I did not speak enough Spanish to even ask him how his day was.

 

For the first few times we were there, the owner did not pay much attention to us until one time; I got my courage together and asked him about a photograph on the wall. He smiled to me for the first time. He then handed us a book on a native photographer from Cusco. (His name was written in a notebook, which is now lost along with some other possessions during a trip in northern Peru.) Hank devoured the book and went from cover to cover at least three times before he was ready to hand it over to me. He was served cappuccino and I, a chocolate caliente. This café had the best hot chocolate ever.

 

Before we left Cusco, we went back to the café to enjoy our last craving for the orange décor and hot chocolate. We told him that we were leaving and then, I saw him smile for the second time; he handed me a figurine of a condor. I pulled my hands out of my gloves to have it placed in my palm. It was a sweet moment, at least I thought so.

Dripping

(Taken by Hank, in Sucre, Bolivia )

 

情侶相處時間久了,到了一定熟稔的程度,就容易出現以下對話:

 

一天在大街上,陳x芳忽然在人很多的廣場上對我說:

 

「我有一個狀況」

「什麼狀況?」

El Tio de La Mina (i think...)

  (Taken by Hank, during la fiesta of Virgen de Guadalupe, Sucre, Bolivia)


I thought that it was just going to be another parade.

 

We stood right outside our hostel which was right on the route of the parade. It wasn't like we had anywhere else to go. Everyone was there and the street corners were blocked off by the police. We were stuck with our front door as our exit.

The Road that shall take me home...

(圖說:taken by Hank, in Peru)


我總說你退休後喜歡裝忙,沒事搞得自己累得半死,但我知道你是天生勞碌命,疼老婆又娶了一個愛發號施令的老婆,我其實是心疼你日夜操勞。

 

我知道你不擅言詞,每次我打電話回家跟媽媽聊天,你總會拿起另一支電話偷聽,每當你跟我講電話,總和你跟阿媽講電話的時候一樣,支支吾吾、不知所措,甚至有些侷促,不知如何表達,雖然我們沒有真正聊什麼心事,但我知道你很關心我,也謝謝你支持我的遠行,幫我繳電話費、處理一些在台灣有的沒的的雜事(我知道就算請老媽幫忙她也會請你去做,或許這也是你一直都很忙的原因之一,哈哈!)
