The urge of talking about this has been itchy for at least a week. Finally, I decided to find a way to organize my thoughts and express the anger and anxiety in me, in a more rational mood.


This summer I was harassed by my former professor in graduate school.


When I was in Beijing I went to visit him. The last time we met was three years ago, and people need to show respect to professors/teachers in China, as a cultural tradition. He invited me to this dinner party that his phd student celebrating the graduation with fellows from his lab. The dinner went like any other Chinese official banquet, there is one person who has most of the power and sits in the center of the table while everyone else (12+ students) has to kiss his ass. I was never a fan of this kind of thing, but I also understand if I want to go back to china with a good job offer, it is obligate to attend.


Everything was fine until we switched venue to a karaoke bar after dinner. My former advisor was slightly drunk, in a pretty damn good mood, since this phd student landed a damn good job offer. Things started going down at the bar. At first I just feel he came too close. He sat next to me, skin to skin. Then he forced me to sing a love duet with him and staring at me and trying to hold my hand as an act for the duet. I didn’t finish the song and moved to sit to the other corner of the room because I already raised suspicion. What confirmed my suspicion is when he walked across the room and sat next to me, again, skin to skin. What made me feel worse is when he started to touch my back and waist, acting like he was too drunk to support himself of accidently touched my skin. The last straw is that he slided his hand from my knee down to my shin. I stood up and told the host, the phd student, that I need to leave because I’m still suffering from jetlag.


I was so angry that I was trembling on the taxi back to my hotel. I wasn’t sure if I was angrier at myself or at the professor, a married man, a teacher of mine, who did this to me. I am still not sure about the object of my rage even today. I called my good friend in Beijing and told him what just happened. I remember telling my friend in the phone that, (1) I told the prof I have a boyfriend, (2) I wasn’t dressed inappropriate, i was wearing a cardigan, and my dress goes down to my knees, (3) I didn’t flirt with him at all. (4) did he do this to me because he thought i am easy since my boyfriend is a foreigner?  You see, Immediately I started to check if it’s me did something wrong, which may misguide him that I am interested to sleep with him.


It is not a solo instance. Now look back at my time in that institute as his student, he was trying to flirt with me from time to time. The most obvious one is that he offered to take me to some resort hotel outside of Beijing during weekend, which I said no thank you. But he didn’t dare to touch me physically back then. However, I did see him as a model or admired him as a student, and I didn’t tell anyone I had a boyfriend back then. And I am more open minded than any other fellow students in the lab. So maybe, perhaps, he is not the only one to blame? That is why I had the checklist going when I was in the taxi?


Every detail is still crystal clear. Every time I look back at this harassment and my time there as a student, I blame myself for not standing up against him at the scene and giving him a slap on the face. There were at least eight other female students at dinner, who are much younger, naïve, and innocent than me. I want to ask them if this monster being harassing them as well, and I want to tell them it is ok to fight back. But how could I? First of all, I do not know them and they know little about me. I have graduated from the lab five years ago and they only heard my name. I don’t know if he ever harassed anyone else. Secondly, which is more important, I didn’t stand up against him myself. How can they expect me as a role model? Lastly, the most important reason, is that, I have no idea where I can report him to? I am only an alumni of the institute, there is no liability issue from the school on me anymore. Moreover, I’m pretty sure even a registered student may have no place to file a complaint. People in charge may just let them shut up, or worse, give them a hard time to graduate for speaking ill of the professor who is in power. Students who report these kinds of things often end up with a slutty reputation as well (particularly if i was the only victim and my boyfriend is foreigner). So no one really wants to disclose those monsters. I’m also worried about the consequences apparently. Do I have any evidence that he harassed me? Students there in the same bar may see nothing. Since he only touched me and it’s not something worse, like many other victims suffering from penetration, people may just say, oh shut up, stop pretending to be a victim here. It is also that once I speak up, there is no possible network for me in this institute, it’ll be a bridge well burned. All these fears, these worries, stopped me from doing anything further. After that night, he texted me a few times while my time in Beijing, inviting me to dinner in private. I turned them down, politely. That’s the keyword, politely. I’m still so afraid to even confront with him.


During the phone call in the taxi, my friend tried to calm me. He is a salesman in a company. He said, yeah, it is really common that women in the workplace are often taken advantage. He has several female colleagues who have to deal with customers at dinner table from time to time. And because they need to sell products, there’s no other way but accept and suffer in silence. It’s a rule of thumb. There are other stories I heard from friends who work in China this summer. It is also true in academia, female faculty members will be invited to resort venues for meetings to “balance the gender”, which usually it’s the male professors are in charge of the meetings, and female profs are just there as dancing/dinner partners. Basically, escort. I’m sure same stories lying around and are easy to find. This makes me sad, how pathetic is the working environment for Chinese women. They already suffer significant prejudice from maternity leave and household responsibilities, which is worsen because of the second children policy. Now they are still being treated like a sex tool even they are as capable as their male colleagues?



I didn’t speak out when the #metoo went viral on facebook and twitter, because my case is cultural specific. Because of my background, I guess I’ll never be able to just blame the professor who gave me these endless self-doubt, or ever collect the courage to confront him or warn his students. Even this essay I’ll only post it on my personal website instead of share it on facebook like I usually do. But I do want to have some answers or clear thoughts on my other rage, to one of my friends’ reaction to this.


There are not many people aware of this assault. People I told are all my close friends that I trust. They are all very supportive and warm, offering me lots of assurance. However, there is this one friend, after I told him, asked me, are you sure he touched you not because he is just too awkward to show his affection to you?—The arguments with him is actually a trigger for my anger and willingness to write down these words.


To his question, I said no, it is not him being awkward, it is because this is not appropriate for him to do so. First of all, he is married, secondly, he was my professor and is still at a more powerful position than me. Then my friend raised an assumption, which is, would you still feel uncomfortable or unacceptable if he is young, attractive, unmarried? I told him that I may very likely to grow affection to this person, but I still think it’s not acceptable for him doing this. Especially you need approval before you can touch anyone! But I feel very offended by his assumption, it makes me judge myself that I only rejected him or feel disgusted because my professor who touched me against my own will is married and not attractive.


Not long ago we had a second argument, when the Hollywood harassment thing is going viral. This time this friend initiated the discussion. He said he doesn’t understand why people only feel powerless, to him, the predators’ behaviors are weird, which is not a power dynamic. This made me jump off my chair. I know this friend means no harm and we often argue about things. However, once again, I am extremely angry at what he just wondered. This sounds like the harassment victims are in a power equal position with those predators, and it is their fault to feel powerless and not fight back at the scene. You see, this is exactly what I have been blaming myself for. So, this time, instead of arguing with him, I just tell him to shut up. I told him, being a friend means you need to be supportive if anyone is going through a sexual harassment, not being judgmental.


I know this friend, as a victim himself once, has no intention to criticize me or blame me for not standing up. I still feel extremely angry at his tone. But later when I am less furious, I started to think if his argument has some merits. Maybe we do need to feel less powerless but analyze the predators’ behaviors so that we can find a solution? However, I can’t seem to be able to convince myself. Emotionally, I kind of still suffering the fact that I didn’t do anything to stop him, and this is why I am angry at my friend’s tone, because it is true that I did feel powerless and it is the reason I didn’t stand up, for myself and for others. However, that monster professor is the person who started it, it is not my fault not to feel his behavior weird, but rather disgusting, offensive, assaulting, and destructing. It is the society’s fault that women are often victims to these types of situation. Why they did it? Because they are sick. Because society gives them power to assault women at no cost. Is it weird? Should we think their behaviors as weird? I don’t care. It is WRONG for them to do so. WRONG, not weird.


Anyway, I’m still angry at myself today. For both not standing up, and for not winning the argument with my friend. This essay definitely helps to clear my thoughts and makes me less upset. I wish in the future, I can find peace with myself, and, the worst case scenario, if this type of thing ever happened again, I will pull myself together and stand up against it.

Our trip to California (and a first try of story map)

I tried ArcGIS story map with our trip to California, here’s the link:

Wictor and Yue’s trip to the west coast

This April, Victor and I had a road trip along the coast of California. We visited Yosemite (of course, highlight of California), santa barbara (a grad school friend of mine, Dr. Shaohua Wang is a visiting scholar at UCSB), LA (after we saw La La Land), Joshua Tree, and San Diego (my ABM conference was there).

We enjoyed our time a lot at the two national parks, also enjoyed food in LA (but not the city), and beer at San Diego.



今天要介绍Feni,一种只出产于印度南部Goa地区,并且只能在该地区贩售的酒。Feni有两种:一种酿自腰果(cashew),另一种是由酒椰子(toddy palm)酿自而成。因为我去玩的时候正好尝了一下腰果甜酒,所以今天来谈谈腰果酒。



腰果的坚果(cashew nut)是长在果实(cashew fruit)上的,一个巨大的腰果果只结一个小小的坚果粒。当地人将腰果的坚果从腰果果实部分采摘之后,坚果拿去烘干、封装,果实部分则被用来做酿酒。










Why female PhDs are under prejudice

Here is a true story of mine: I was hanging out with several friends, who are all grad students of course, on a Saturday evening at a pub. It was Halloween, so everyone else was dressed up in funny costumes except us.  A guy wearing a yellow chicken costume came over to our table and started talking to me. He was good-looking and good mannered, which carried the conversation quite smoothly. After telling me he is an undergrad student in Accounting, he asked “what’s your major?” I answered without thinking “oh, I’m a PhD student in Geography.” All of a sudden, our conversation froze, so did his facial expression. He was so shocked that he could not say a single word. “What?!” he found his tongue after ten seconds, “you’re a PhD student! No wonder you look smart.” Not surprisingly, he vanished soon.


In China, female PhD students are called the “third” category of human beings, beside “male” and “female”. When I told my family and relatives my decision of pursuing a doctoral degree, they tried to persuade me to give up by all kinds of methods. Before I came to Canada, I thought highly-educated females are only discriminated against in China. However, I was very wrong: female doctoral students have to suffer prejudices, not only in China, but all over the world.


Personally, I hate being labeled as female PhD student, because this label always comes along with the descriptions of nerd, bossy, unfashionable, emotionless, etc.; actually, I like this group of people very much (not because I myself am part of this group). They are highly intelligent, they are passionate for their own research, they can handle stressful situations, they are powerful in fieldwork, and they are attractive from the inside out. Basically, they should be called “Super Woman” instead of “neither man nor woman”. Trying to understand why they’re under unfair prejudice, I did an informal survey on Facebook and Chinese version Facebook, and I have more than 50 responses. However, the answers may not be representative due to the majority of my friends/respondents being all grad students.


The most popular answer is that highly-educated women are threatening to men’s domination. Such threatening can be found in every respect of daily life, which makes the male gender not as satisfied as they used to be. Without doubt, men have long been in dominating positions among genders. They are unwilling to accept the fact that women can perform equally well as long as both of them have equal access to proper education. The second popular answer is that women’s natural duty is to raise children and support their family, which female PhDs can’t devote enough time and energy to. One can simply imagine how hard it is to balance trivial housework and tens and hundreds of proposals, experiments, and papers. Besides, most of the female PhDs are above the average age of marriage and giving birth—“retarded” in their personal life, which is a general social issue nowadays. The third answer is that the unfair judgement is just sour grapes.  People (either men or women) who can’t pursue a PhD degree are jealous of those who can, especially those who are female; men who can’t have a partner with a PhD degree will defend themselves as “we don’t want to because they’re monsters”.


To my huge relief, excepting the above answers, most of my respondents said that they are not scared of female PhDs at all; on the contrary, they admire this group of people as “heroines with both beauty and wisdom”. However, I am not 100 percent satisfied with these answers, because none of them can explain why people only have prejudice for female PhDs instead of powerful women in other regimes (for example, female CEOs).  Moreover, the survey should have covered people with different degrees to represent diversity. Anyhow, at least I have learned my lesson: never tell strangers that I’m a PhD student when we are at pub on a Saturday night.

Beyond its visual effects: what I see from Avatar

Having seen Avatar twice already, I was still very excited when I received the email from Galaxy, the largest entertainment company in Canada, saying that I have the chance to see it for the third time. I also broadcast this news to my friends and invited them to see this thought-provoking movie with me.


People’s first impression of Avatar is its pioneering effects: huge screen, excellent sound, three-dimensional image, magical creatures, and bold imagination. Avatar won three Oscar awards: best achievement in art direction, in cinematography, and in visual effects—all related to visual arts. From this point of view, Avatar is an extraordinary “must see” movie. It is a milestone of movie art.


However, the storyline of Avatar is quite simple, compared to its mind blowing visual effect. A paraplegic retired marine is sent to Pandora to collect local information for a greedy human company. After spending a few days with Navi, the native people on Pandora, he falls in love with this planet and the people. Thus he betrays his original mission and helps Navi to fight for their rights and protect their beautiful planet. A lone hero saves the entire world, very typical Hollywood storyline. This is why some people argue that this movie is not a “great” movie, only its visual effects are great.


Although this storyline is naive and utopian, I enjoyed the movie very much. Not only its visual effects, but the story inspired me profoundly. As a geography PhD student, I can find some similarities between the situation in Pandora and my study area, the Brazilian Amazon: these areas are full of resources and their own spirits and values, but native society and economics are less developed (according to outsiders’ standards), which bring them the danger of exploitation from outside capital. When facing this danger, there are only two results for native people in history and in movies: colonization or temporary victory. Unfortunately, the latter one happens only in movies. When it comes to reality, the results can be unbelievably severe. For instance, the population of Native Americans dropped from 40 million to 3 million after the colonist massacre. Even in the end of Avatar, I call the victory a “temporary” victory, because there will be a second, a third battle since the capital is always chasing for profit. Navi people won’t be safe forever.


Neither colonization nor temporary victory is what we want. First of all, one can’tstop capital coming into these virgin areas. Secondly, there will be a “war” (even a war without bloodshed) inevitably; when that real war happens, no supernatural “forest creatures” can be called to fight for justice as in Avatar. Last, for the native people themselves, advancing with the times seems a more practical solution than dying in a massacre and ending with their culture disappearance altogether. Some people may say that they would choose to fight until the last person and last minute. This is the least responsible method to me: you let the people die for no return, you let the land be exploited with no respect, and you let the unique culture disappear from the world. Moreover, in the movie itself, Navi killed tens and hundreds of human beings during the war. One may argue there should be no mercy in a war, but those human soldiers are not cold-blooded killers, they are just soldiers who perform their duties. However, the ultimate goal is that we have to find the balance of life and nature via avoiding loss of any side.


Thus comes the question: how can we find a win-win solution for both native people and the capital market. For the capital market, chasing more profit is the only purpose, no matter what paths must be taken: war, colonization, destructive exploitation, or more gentle and sustainable development. The first three are faster but not durable approaches, while only the last approach is sustainable and can earn public credibility as well. For the native people, cooperation is their last and only chance, so trying to win over a better contract or business mechanism at the very beginning is recommended. Impacts from outside are inevitable, of course, but the undesirable impacts can be reduced to their lowest. If we calculate the loss and profit from both sides, cooperation is the optimum solution.


The real world is much crueller than the fairy tale of Avatar. Although the story ends “happily” in the movie, one must not forget the tremendous loss of Navi as well as earth people. Trying to avoid bleeding, learning experiences from history, and finding an optimum solution are what we should be inspired by Avatar beyond its magical visual effects.

【9】Can REDD save the forest?




二月份的时候老板就说让我参加CAG,the annual meeting of Canadian association of Geographers。因为committee member 德哥刚来我们系任教,受命主持其中一个ABM的session。不然之前Ray告诫过我说在CAG上讲ABM底下的人都听不懂的,AAG还差不多(AAG有关ABM的section持续了两天)。老板当时问我做个poster怎么样,我考虑了一下,脑残的说,要不还是做个presentation吧。后来发现当时自告奋勇的我是有多“无知者无畏”和“不自量力”。










bella在我家的时候正好过了她的一岁生日,由于是拉布拉多和德国牧羊犬的混血,加上还是个puppy,格外活泼好动,运动量巨大,用同学和我老板的话说是“that dog is crazy, full of energy”。早上傍晚半夜各遛一次,早上和半夜不少于半个小时,傍晚那次因为草坪上经常有很多狗狗,所以就放她玩至少一个小时。饶是如此,bella同学回家之后还是不安分,会叼着球跑到你面前让你丢球跟她玩。有时在草坪上跟别的狗狗追逐一两个小时,累到回家就整个趴在地上大喘气,我和室友以为可以轻松一下了,没一会儿她就又活蹦乱跳的往你身上扑了。

有段时间室友不在,我还要准备一周之后的报告,每天被程序折磨的痛苦不堪,还有一个人照顾她的重任。有一天晚上骑车回去,遛bella一个小时,做饭,11点左右又冒雨骑车往学校赶,继续调程序,到半夜两点再骑车回去。这边大农村跟北京不一样,天一黑,路上没人没车,只有松鼠和星光。后来骑那些个大上坡的时候也不知道脸上是雨水还是泪。第二天早上九点跟导师有会,遛完bella准备出门,傻姑同学不知道发什么疯,追着我跑出来,拉都拉不回去。多亏有邻居joel帮忙,才hold住她,关进了屋。因为这一闹,就特别急的骑车往学校赶,在ring road上拐弯时没减速整个人从车上摔了出去。坐在地上傻了30秒,爬不起来。有司机停下了问我“are you okay?”,除了回答”i’m alright, thanks”,还能说什么,您能帮我带狗吗,您能帮我写程序吗?爬起来继续往办公室骑,还不能哭,因为马上要开会。






3,邻居之善-side effects






我问了好多朋友,说,我觉得我对bella的照顾,是责任多于爱,那种发自内心的爱。我会担心她是否吃好睡好开心了,但是是基于父母的义务,而不是主动自发的那种感情。如果她乖乖的,我会非常高兴;如果她不听话,我会很严厉的训斥她。那万一我以后对自己的小孩儿也是责任多于爱怎么办?要是他们表现的不好,我就不爱他们了怎么办?墨西哥大姐说,有时候责任和爱是连在一起的,你没法真正分开他们;况且你知道bella只在你们家待一个月,潜意识里知道不能放太多感情进去。巴基斯坦大姐说,哦,怀孕的时候荷尔蒙一分泌,你就明白所有的事情都不一样了。三哥也说,for sure you’ll love your own children.








之前跟同学聊天的时候说到“文商指数”——人们接受、适应不同文化的能力,加拿大国民的文商指数全球排名第一,这当然和加拿大是移民国家的背景分不开。作为在加拿大生活了七个月的我,也渐渐开始学会平心静气的接受不少cultural shock甚至academic shock了。




除了这些,最近因为读了几篇导师给的文章,所以对我博士研究的ABM也有了一点观念上的转变。我一直认为土地利用模拟一定要跟现实做对比,不能反映现实的模型不是好模型,不能被generalize的决策规则不是好的规则。所以以前读文章的时候总是纠结于ABM的验证环节的缺失和先天不足,以及即使做现实的模拟,结果也总是差强人意,甚至都不优于随机的模型结果。。不过现在已经开始慢慢接受这第三种科学方法了,我的理解就是试着通过现有的样本、案例、经验、理解做出在这种情况下最合理的假设,或者最好的模拟结果,对于导致这种结果的过程,我们可以怀着信心和信念,因为人类和环境的复杂性,我们看到的感知到的永远是受限制的。而且与其他科学研究以推理演绎、归纳总结为方法和Occam’s razor为指导思想不同的是,ABM是试图尽力反映人类的交互和人类环境交互的混乱性。。所以我们永远无法将所有的可能性考虑进来,提出一个简单的人类决策规则,建立一个完美的ABM模型。

reading list还很长,code也很多,同志仍需努力。学术之路,最重要的大概就是虚怀若谷了吧。











让我对华盛顿这个城市印象很好的还有一个地方:Georgetown。乔治城在downtown的西北外,有一趟环形线公交到,旁边有一条河以及很多海鸥,河边有很多意大利风格的小咖啡馆和餐厅,还有一条步行购物街(没错,虽然只是旅行第一站,我已经在这里买了两条牛仔裤和一件衬衣),总之就是个非常休闲的地方。我们先在河边拿薯片喂海鸥和麻雀们,然后邂逅了一家很有趣的咖啡馆,店里挂满了各种旗帜。那家店里的美女服务员英语比我还不顺(但是因为长得很美意大利人吧大概),后来找零的时候他们老板,一个可爱的老头出来跟我们聊天。我说it’ll be better if you could have flag of china,老板说,不是better,是nicer,不过我这些旗帜都是顾客、邻居或者朋友送的,下次你们可以自己带一面来。哈哈,他还跟我们说这里还有dalai lama的旗帜。另外还有一面很奇怪的旗帜,是镰刀斧头加一个五角星的红旗,我跟振中师兄都没猜出来是什么,我说搞不好是外国人理解错了我们的国旗。。然后老板说,啊,你们来自中国,居然不知道这面旗,shame on you。原来是苏联国旗。。后来我们在MIT校园的也看到一个办公室窗上挂着这面旗。因为发生了一件乌龙的事件,所以我们发现到费城的megabus已经错过了的时候,就决定好好吃一顿午饭。挑了一家有lunch special的一个意大利餐馆,12块一个人,而且有两个菜,餐厅装修的也很漂亮,尤其是二楼的阳台,不过那会儿还不让上。点餐的时候是餐厅的主厨出来推荐了,然后我在对这些食物名称一无所知的情况下,勉强点了一个认识的意面,真的非常好吃,很浓郁的香味。而且吃的时候他还来问我们及隔壁桌的三位美女觉得怎么样。








首先科普一下(我之前也不知道),美国有两个华盛顿,一个首都、特区Washington D.C.,就是我这次去的那个;还有一个是华盛顿州,在美国的左上角。

行程:先坐了两小时灰狗从waterloo到了toronto,然后从晚上9点开始上了去DC的megabus,一直到第二天上午9点到达DC的union station。忘记几点钟在buffalo那里过界的,反正那个黑人officer还挺和善,问了你们住哪里,待几天,就放我们过去了。美帝城市之间也是和加拿大风格很像的大农村,容积率低的平房、房屋间隔大,没有人烟。。。走的高速路两边有山有水有围墙,而这个石头围墙很奇怪,经常一段有一段没有的,不知道是不是美国交通部钱不够,不能全部修完。。

住宿:DC我们定的是一个hostel,离UnionStation大概十几分钟的步行距离,一间小小的阁楼,check in的时候是一位黑人staff,说的话我一句都听不懂。小蓝楼右边的那栋就是啦。另外说起来,除了恢弘的博物馆和大楼之外,DC也有很多这种小住宅楼,两三层高,楼体很窄,但是径深,而且刷了各种漂亮的颜色,除了这个蓝色,还有各种粉色黄色,像网上一张流传很广的希腊民居照片,非常的有生活气息。

虽然只是美帝的首都,可是和我们伟大祖国的首都北京风格还是比较一致的,主题区建筑风格恢弘统一,都是大柱子。咱们有天安门广场,他们也有national mall,东西两头分别是“议员大会堂”Capitol,和”林总统纪念堂“——Lincoln Memorial(你看老美多不尊重人家领导,都不叫President Lincoln Memorial)。中间还分布着人民英雄Monument,美国故宫national musuem of american history+national gallery of art。远处还有八宝艾灵顿革命公墓。不一样的地方在于有一座national musum of natural science,咱们北京的科技馆有点远,在北四环外,我以前革命的地方附近,不像华盛顿在城中心。到此一游照都已经放在相册里了。忽然觉得红围巾真的好革命斗士的范儿,有没有酷





The Capitol stands as a monument to the American people. it is where the issues facing the nation are considered, debated, and written into law. 不知道这里面的代表举手累吗?在这个角度国会山里有可以看国会的会议室、有美国历史的油画大厅,有每个州做的雕塑。

另外,it also houses an important collection of American art, and it is an architectural achievement in its won right. 从这个角度欣赏国会山,你可以看到它wedding cake形式的构造,磅礴的穹顶、顶上的statue of freedom的青铜雕像。


2、博物馆,我们去了三个博物馆(一下午的时间,效率高吧):national archive, natural science, and gallery of art.在画廊里有中文、日文的说明,还有毕加索和梵高的展厅,看到了thinker和罗马的雕塑,有一个摄影师的作品展,都是他太太的屁股组成的奇特结构的照片,我非常不能理解。。。。。另外有个工作人员老爷爷跟我说中国女孩子个性最好啦!这里面中国的文物不多,只有几个质地一般的瓷器。archive里面最重要的当然是那个连字都看不清楚的独立宣言啦,不过还有一卷一卷的关于朝鲜战争、越南战争的文件!科技馆里面主要是我被教育了一下初中生物知识(比如在twilight ocean zone里面99%的生物都是自己发光的、两栖动物在哺乳动物前还是后这种)、看到了一个很炫的地球、还有在各种标本前拍213青年照。




艾灵顿和五角大楼其实都不在特区里,而是在virginia州了。所以出了公墓,我们又坐地铁到了五角大楼Pentagon。一出地铁气氛就不一样,到处都是警告牌写着no video,no photo,很多军装帅哥把守,不能随便乱窜。我们想找911纪念馆,结果走错了路口很远就被大兵叫住,把刚刚偷偷拍了一张五角大楼照片的振中师兄吓坏了谄笑。而且这里有很多军装男进进出出,非常帅气,也有西装革履的文职人员。不过不管从哪个角度,我们都不可能把五角大楼拍全,因为它真的很大,美国的军事力量的确不容小觑嘛。
