Bullocks, Yellowknife NWT

地西北特区首府黄刀(Yellowknife,NWT),有一个叫Bullocks的饭馆,地方不大,但四季火爆,要去不提前预约不可能有位子。 这个饭馆的特殊之处在于,它不仅有美味的北部原住民的地道的鱼类佳肴,还在于这儿见证来自全球旅游者到黄刀看北极光留下的涂鸦之作,和贴在屋顶上的种作为“到此一游”见证的各国货币。其中最让我吃惊的是津巴布韦的面值 10,000,000(一千万) 纸币,其市值相当于一加元, 由此可见,在这个饱受西方制裁的南部非洲国家,通货膨胀率是何等可怕。我最近的一次光顾是在二月中旬, 同事吃完晚饭出门,运气不错就看到了一抺碧绿的北极光,形如展翅翱翔的雄鹰。 饭馆内墙壁上的干鱼标本,把鱼做成装饰在加拿大西部及北方很常见 面值一千万的津巴布韦的货币 颇有大明遗风的韩国货币 如翱翔雄鹰般的北极光 Advertisements
