      • << 學者 : 北京被破壞得較嚴重無法和巴黎 ﹑ 羅馬比 >>
      • 「老北京的胡同,如今已消失了 80% 」
      • 「在意大利,誰敢在古建築上亂刻一個字,立刻會遭到嚴厲譴責。我在那兒剛好經歷了一件事:羅馬的西班牙大台階前面,有一個噴泉水池,是古跡,有幾個俄羅斯遊客喝醉了,跳進噴泉洗澡,造成水池輕微劃傷,結果被警方拘留了。第二天當地所有報紙都在報道此事,齊聲聲討,不依不饒,輿論甚至對整個俄羅斯的人都冷嘲熱諷。這要在我們中國,可能就不算事兒了」
    • Is it the time for us to consider about ‘ less learning others’, more preserving ours’?
