New Delhi Over the past 30 years, I've had the privilege of traveling to a very different Asia. Whenever I think back on my visits, it's as if a movie reel of images, old and new, were running through my head. I think of the elegant temples of Kyoto, or the rituals of nomadic life outside Ulaanbaatar, the intricate handwork of traditional craftspeople in Chiang Rai, the vibrant markets of Hanoi, Hong Kong, and Dhaka; the grand hotels of Singapore and Manila, the calligraphers practicing their art in Xi'an, the historic dress of Seoul and the traditional dances of Jakarta, or the strum of the sitar in New Delhi.在过去的30年间,我有幸前往一个十分不同的亚洲旅行。每当我回忆起那些访问,就好像一卷新旧图像交错的电影胶片在头脑中闪过。我想起[日本]京都典雅的寺庙、[蒙古]乌兰巴托郊外的游牧生活、[泰国]清莱省传统艺人制作的精美工艺品、[越南]河内、香港和[孟加拉国]达卡熙熙攘攘的市场、新加坡与马尼拉的豪华酒店、[中国]西安练艺的书法家、[韩国]首尔的古典服装和[印尼]雅加达的传统舞蹈、[印度] 新德里拨响的锡塔琴。 ritual 仪式;惯例;礼制 nomadic adj. 游牧的;流浪的;游动的 intricate adj. 复杂的;错综的,缠结的 vibrant adj. 振动的;充满生气的,活力的
