前一陣子的暴動,震驚了許多英國控(其實是我自己啦)。怎麼也沒有料到英國也會有這一天。但是更令人震驚的是暴動竟然會蔓延到利物浦去!恰好,當時我正準備要開始起筆寫『再訪利物浦』的系列,遇到了暴動事件,我卻不知該如何下筆了!所以就暫緩到現在才恢復發文。不知道現在復原的情況如何了~但先將這複雜的心情放一邊,來瞧瞧2010年天仙再訪利物浦時再度踏上母校校園的情境吧!

The riot that happened a while ago shocked a lot of people (obviously including me). It was shocking because it was quite unexpected. It was even more shocking that the riots spread to elsewhere, and of all places - Liverpool! At the time, I was just about to start writing the next series of my 2010 travel log - on Liverpool. The riots confused me. I didn't know how to start writing. That's why I'm only starting to post my Liverpool journals now. I wonder how things are now. But let's put that feeling aside, and take a look at how tranquil the place can be. How serene and friendly the place was during my visit in 2010.

2009九月二十日離開利物浦的那天,我壓根沒想到一整年都還沒過,我就可以再度踏上這塊土地。那種感覺很奇妙。有種很熟悉,卻又很陌生的感覺。這是我生活過一整年的地方。這是我夢想了十年後終於達到的地方。但是這次再訪校園讓我發現,我在利物浦生活的那一年,讓這一年變得完美無缺得除了課程本身,除了校園,當然還有最重要的—朋友!即使是當地的朋友也都一個一個離開,到別處發展。這裡無論記憶裡或是當下還是多麼的美好,少了那群朋友,就像是沒有酒的酒杯一樣...(啊?)

When I left Liverpool on 20th September, 2009, I didn't realise I could return again within a year. It was quite an amazing feeling - a mixture of familiarity and estrangedness. This was the place that I had lived for an entire year. It was also the place I had dreamed of coming for ten years. But upon my return this time, I realised that the element that made that year impeccably perfect, other than the campus and the course itself, was my friends. Even my English friend had moved onto other things, to other places. No matter how wonderful my memory of the place is, and no matter how beautiful the place remained, without my friends, Liverpool is just not the same Liverpool.
