充值足彩充值中心足彩中心I stood still an hour or thereabouts without trespassing on ourorders (for so long the caravan was in passing the gate), to lookat it on every side, near and far off; I mean what was within myview: and the guide, who had been extolling it for the wonder ofthe world, was mighty eager to hear my opinion of it. I told himit was a most excellent thing to keep out the Tartars; which hehappened not to understand as I meant it and so took it for acompliment; but the old pilot laughed! "Oh, Seignior Inglese,"says he, "you speak in colours." - "In colours!" said I; "what doyou mean by that?" - "Why, you speak what looks white this way andblack that way - gay one way and dull another. You tell him it is

I understand you, SeigniorInglese, I understand you; but Seignior Chinese understood you hisown way." - "Well," says I, "do you think it would stand out anarmy of our country people, with a good train of artillery; or ourengineers, with two companies of miners? Would not they batter itdown in ten days, that an army might enter in battalia; or blow itup in the air, foundation and all, that there should be no sign ofit left?" - "Ay, ay," says he, "I know that." The Chinese wantedmightily to know what I said to the pilot, and I gave him leave totell him a few days after, for we were then almost out of theircountry, and he was to leave us a little time after this; but whenhe knew what I said, he was dumb all the rest of the way, and weheard no more of his fine story of the Chinese power and greatnesswhile he stayed.足彩充值中心充值足彩中心After we passed this mighty nothing, called a wall, something likethe Picts walls so famous in Northumberland, built by the Romans,we began to find the country thinly inhabited, and the peoplerather confined to live in fortified towns, as being subject to theinroads and depredations of the Tartars, who rob in great armies,and therefore are not to be resisted by the naked inhabitants of anopen country. And here I began to find the necessity of keepingtogether in a caravan as we travelled, for we saw several troops ofTartars roving about; but when I came to see them distinctly, Iwondered more that the Chinese empire could be conquered by suchcontemptible fellows; for they are a mere horde of wild fellows,keeping no order and understanding no discipline or manner of it.Their horses are poor lean creatures, taught nothing, and fit fornothing; and this we found the first day we saw them, which wasafter we entered the wilder part of the country. Our leader forthe day gave leave for about sixteen of us to go a hunting as theycall it; and what was this but a hunting of sheep! - however, itmay be called hunting too, for these creatures are the wildest andswiftest of foot that ever I saw of their kind! only they will notrun a great way, and you are sure of sport when you begin thechase, for they appear generally thirty or forty in a flock, and,like true sheep, always keep together when they fly.充值

足彩中心In pursuit of this odd sort of game it was our hap to meet withabout forty Tartars: whether they were hunting mutton, as we were,or whether they looked for another kind of prey, we know not; butas soon as they saw us, one of them blew a hideous blast on a kindof horn. This was to call their friends about them, and in lessthan ten minutes a troop of forty or fifty more appeared, at abouta mile distance; but our work was over first, as it happened.充值足彩中心
