KAMEN I KONFUCIJE

Proplanci su me i izvezli iz Jinana, i sa jednim momkom koji je posao na univerzitet bajsom izvozah 10-15 km, sve po hupserima, medj` kamenim cukama. Prevalio me siroki put u dolinu i uz reku (a ko bi o cemu, ako ne ja o saobracajnicama-baciti pogled na sliku) ocas stigoh do Tai`an-a. „Mali“ grad i ima hostel; malo za promenu da se cuje, ne samo engleski, vec i neki slovenski jezik, jer ima i gostiju Poljaka. A u sobi kod mene, kinezi. Njih dvojica penju sutra na svetu planinu, i eto meni ne predvidjenog drustva. A na planini, srecom nije praznik, a ipak je sto kaze stara kineska „planina ljudi i more osoba“. Svojevrsna „zlatiborijada“- recimo jabuka pri vrhu 1$. I tako to.

A evo sta je providjenje, sta izaziva ushicenje i ostala ljudska (samo)dobricinstva…1 400 m visinske razlike; 7,5 km duzinski i vise od 6 000 stepenika. Potvrdilo se da je niz gore nego uz, ili je umor ucnio svoje!?! Ipak je osam sati osam sati. Slike ovo sve ne mogu docarati, a jos manje nazivi tih kapija kroz koje se prolazilo, ili citati uklesani u stene, a najveci sa po metar golemim karakterima. I Mao je, naravno citiran i Mao se, naravno penjao. I mnogi drugi- kazu da je prvi vladar jos tamo davne neke proklamovao jedinstvo Kine sa vrha.

Penjao se i Konfucije, i sutradan sam ostavio Taishan iza ledja, a krenuo u rodni grad, ujedno i mesto gde je sahranjen ovaj veliki filozof. Qufu. Na putu srecem gomilu Kineza, jedno dvadesetak koji su se zaputili iz svog Harbina, na severu, skroz na jug na najvece ostrvo (izuzimajuci T.) Hainan. Eto meni drustva!! Sporazumevam se nekako, da sam potegao i za varijantu B, nazvao sam Janka u Peking pa je on malo porazgovarao sa njihovim vodjom- u moje ime. Bilo kako bilo, dosao sam sa njima do grada, smestio se u jedan pansion (valjda konacno bez one birokratije i za malu kolicinu juana). Leteci obilazak na motoru sa vlasnikom pansiona: oko i kroz tvrdjavu, kroz vrhunski sredjene, nalickane ulice, jer ovde je sve u znaku turizma- sto bi im rekla turisticka poskocica „friendly Shandong“.

Posle obedovanja odlazim na drugi kraj utvrdjenog centra u posetu groblju. Najvece, kazu porodicno na svetu, sa 100 000 komada drveca i najznacajnijim grobom od svih- kamenim sarkofagom i stubom koji obelazavaju mesto vecnog pocinka velikog Konfucija. Zaduzio mnoge careve, a bogami i savremenu Kinu, jer dodelise ovom mestu AAAAA, turisticku oznaku. Najvecu i ujedno je u „ediciji“ svetske kulturne bastine. A sve to podrazumeva gomilu turista, elektricne vozice, elektronske ulaze i izlaze, gomilu svakojakog prevoza unaokolo i jos vecu gomilu suvernirnica.

I tako u dva dana, po lepom vremenu obidjoh dva lepa, atraktivna mesta, smestena gotovo u centru prvog dela mojih putesestvija po KIni.

Prognoza i za naredne dane suncana: toplo, ali ne i prevruce, vetar u ledja- do sledecih pisanija!

Stone and Confucius
I left Jinan riding between glades and hills accompanied by a guy who was going to university by bike. 10-15 miles we drove along the trail full of bumps, and we were in the „small“city of Taishan in no time. I found a hostel, where I could hear not only English, but also Slavic languages, for there were guests from Poland. Anyways, I shared the room with two Chineze. They planned to climb to a holy mountain tomorrow, so I got unexpected company. Fortunately up on the mountain shouldn’t be too many people, because it was not a holiday, yet according to the old Chinese saying „ a mountain – people and the sea – person“. This reminded me of a mountain here in Serbia, in English it would be The Golden Pine Mountain.
And here’s the reason that causes all the excitement: 1400m difference in altitude; 7,5km duration and more than 6000 steps. There are no words or photos that can give an appropriate picture of many gates through which I passed, their names, quotes craved into the rocks, sometimes almost a kilometer long.   After spending 8 hours on the mountain, it was harder to climb down than to climb up – I was getting tired. But of course, if Mao (who was also quoted) climbed these mountains, who was I to give in? Many other say that a Chinese monarch once upon a time had proclaimed the unity of China from the top.
The great philosopher Confucius has also been on this mountain so I left Taishan and went to his hometown, Qufu, part of Shandong Province, also the place where he was buried. On the road I met a bunch of bikers. About twenty of them went from Harbin in north to southern island Hainan, the second largest China’s island after Taiwan. It was hard to me to talk with them in Chinese, so I called Janko in Beijing and he spoke with the leader of the group instead of me. I drove with them to the city and  decided to spend the night in a pension (cheap accommodation and finally, without bureaucracy). I took a tour of the city accompanied by the owner of the pension on his motorcycle. We visited the fortress driving through beautifully decorated streets. Chinese are developing tourism in, how they call it, “friendly Shandong”.
The next day after have had breakfast I went to another part of the walled city to visit the cemetery. It is the largest cemetery in the world, where are planted 100.000 trees. The most important is the tomb of the great Confucius – a stone sarcophagus and a pillar. Many of Chinese emperors owe him for the reputation of this place. In contemporary China this place has the largest tourist value and it is a part of the World cultural heritage. You can see tourists everywhere, electric trains and various means of transport, electronic entrances and exits, and many souvenir shops.
So in two days of nice weather I have visited two beautiful and attractive places, located almost in the center of the first part of my trip to China.
Weather forecast for the next few days: pleasant and not too warm. Wind in the back- until the next report.
