重庆冬天基本没有黄昏 Winters in Chongqing are “Sunsetless”

  • 重庆的冬天总是被雾气笼罩,所以基本也没有黄昏这一概念。尤其2020年冬季退潮后的长江雾气,犹如疫情以后人们被迫戴上口罩的呼吸出的雾气一样模糊而绵长。不知何时开始,黄昏时刻到江边散步成为了我的一个重要的日常活动,行走在退潮以后的滩涂沙地上,以往不曾关注的景象变得越发的清晰。那些因为疫情无法营业不得不用塑料布包裹的江边小摊位,无人光顾的江边渡船饭店等等,这些景象共同构成了2020年对江岸的冬季印象。但是随着潮水上涨,我也就知道,重庆的黄昏慢慢快要到来了,因为一个新的夏天也来了。
      Winter in Chongqing is always covered with fog, so there is basically no concept of twilight. Especially in the winter of 2020, the fog on the Yangtze River after low tide is as fuzzy and long as the fog that people breathe after the epidemic when they are forced to wear masks. At some point, walking along the river at dusk became an important daily activity for me, and when I walked on the mudflats after the low tide, the scenes that I had not paid attention to before became clearer and clearer. The riverside stalls that had to be wrapped in plastic because of the epidemic and the uncrowded riverside ferry hotels, etc. together formed the winter impression of the riverbank in 2020. But as the tide rose, I knew that the twilight of Chongqing was slowly approaching, because a new summer had come.
