【E外桃源】A day in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

两年前的某天,一队空中飞人参与者一路跋山涉水,走了很久的山路,终于气喘吁吁地来到山顶的起跳站。一看到底下全是大块的石头我就心生胆怯,但既然已经来到了,我不想临阵退缩,其实,准备跳下去的那一刻才是最可怕的。

 

根据领队的指示,我身体要向前倾,然后把身体自然往下掉。但是人的本能会让自己身体往后倾,我来回挣扎了好几下,最后鼓足勇气,大叫一声,让自己的身体往下掉。一旦跳下去后,我就恨不得多荡一会儿,感觉耳边微风呼呼,像鸟儿一般的自由自在。

 

可惜在空中荡来荡去一分钟都不到,我就被缓缓着地了。有的人跳了两次,我因为害怕,排在后面,就没有机会再跳一次了。跳完后的感觉特别好,我感到很自豪,觉得又一次战胜了自己,并觉得自己有潜力对付人生中的更多挑战。

 

空中飞人结束后,我们来到ATV越野车停车站,每人拿到一条四方巾,用来围住口鼻挡风沙。然后大家把越野车开得飞快,一路风尘仆仆地开去吃饭地点,下车后,我们从头到脚都盖着厚厚的尘土。饭前,有人拿着个强力吹风机把我们一个个身上的泥土都吹干净了,才开始吃饭。吃完饭我们就结束了筋疲力竭的一天,一辆旅游大巴来接我们返回各自的酒店。


Two years ago, a group of "The Pendulum" (Giant Rope Swing) participants panted at the jump station at the top of the hill after a long hike. There was one giant rope that I needed to hold on to and swing after I jumped down from the top of the hill.  The bottom was full of large stones that made me feel timid.  But since I was there, I didn’t want to chicken out.  The moment of preparing to jump down was the most frightening moment.

According to the leader's instructions, I should lean forward and drop my body down naturally. But human instinct made me lean backwards.  After I struggled back and forth several times, finally I summoned up the courage to let out a loud cry and let my body fall. Once I jumped down, I started to enjoy the swing. I felt the breeze whistling in my ears, I was as free as a bird.

But actually I swung less than a minute, then I was slowly let down. Some people jumped twice, but since I was scared, I was the last one to jump, so I didn't have a chance to jump again. I felt very good after I was unbuckled from the swing.  I felt very proud of myself and thought I could conquer more challenges in my life.

After The Pendulum, we went to an ATV station, each person was given a scarf to cover one’s nose and mouth.  Then we sped the ATV off to the dining place. We were covered with dust from head to toe.  Before dinner, someone took a powerful blower to blow the dust off our clothes.  Then we began to eat. We finished our exhausting day with a tour bus to pick us up and head back to each of our hotels.

 

This is me jumping down 这是我正在往下跳
