A School for Rice and a Park for Water 米國學校跟親水公園

Last week I discovered something very important.  I looked down at my leg - towards what I thought was a mosquito - and realized that a completely different kind of bug was biting me.  What kind of bug it was I have no idea.  我上禮拜發現一件很重要的事情.  我以為蚊子在叮我的時候, 往腿部一看發現叮我的昆蟲根本不是蚊子.  我到現在還不知道那是什麼昆蟲.



Strange insects were attacking me in the midst of our fourth grade field trip.  It was the usual "Rice School"/Guanshan Water Park thing - a trip I've taken twice already.  奇奇怪怪的昆蟲在我們學校戶外教學的時候叮我.  這一次戶外教學的目的地是以往的米國學校跟關山的親水公園.  我已經跟學校去過三次.


As you can see in the picture above, the Guanshan Farmer's Association has given up on the Guanshan "Flower Sea" for the time being.  Growing all those flowers exhausts the soil, and the sunflowers are probably their way of letting the soil "rest."  你從上面的照片看的出來, 最近關山農會不再種他們的花海.  種那些花耗費太多的土壤養分了, 目前的太陽花大概是讓土地 "休息" 的意思.


As for the "Rice School," it's not incredibly interesting, but as field trip destinations go it's not bad.  Half the classes sorted rice into different types, while the other half made "glutinous rice balls" with a red bean filling.  After an hour or so the halves switched activities.  米國學校不是很有趣, 可是對戶外教學來說是個不錯的地方.  二個班級探索稻米種類, 另外二個班級去做紅豆麻糬.  差不多在一小時之後交換項目.


Guanshan was very quiet that day.  Just a couple days later, during the five-day weekend that followed, it was CRAZY.  那一天關山很安靜.  但在這之後的五天連假中關山變得好誇張.


After the "Rice School" we visited the Guanshan Water(front) Park.  米國學校結束以後我們去關山親水公園.


The park was practically empty.  During our entire time there I saw maybe five other people.  公園沒什麼人.  我們在那裏的時候我只看到其他五個人.


This stream is behind the park.  I was surprised at how clean it was.  I'm sure it helps that very few people live around here.  公園後面的小溪.  我沒想到這裡的小溪那麼乾淨.  這是人口少的好處.


But it's a sad place for Mr. Train.  The municipality office has abandoned him near the stream, behind a building.  Now he's a home for plants.  可是這台火車先生很可憐.  鎮公所把他丟在小溪附近的角落.  他變成了植物的家.


This is probably the most famous view in that park.  I really wanted to jump into the water.  應該是公園裡最有名的景色.  我很想跳進去水裡.


And this is the Ecological Pond, on the other side of the park.  I'm not big into watching birds, but I've heard it's a great place to do so.  這是另外一邊的生態池.  我不是很喜歡賞鳥, 可是聽說這個地方滿適合這個活動.


Not sure what this thing is supposed to be, but I bet it looks super evil at night.  我不知道這個東西的用途, 可是晚上的時候一定很恐怖.
