多愁善感吉卜賽Sentimental Gypsy

 

未見其人,先聞其聲。

我坐在電車上,她們向電車跑着、喊着,我完全聽不懂她們在喊什麼,但語調激昂,似有「大件事」;然後電車忽然剎停,原來她們衝進路軌,阻止電車前進,其中一人猛拍電車門,繼續喊叫着,電車司機一副「放棄了」的表情,無奈地打開車門,拍打車門的人大喜,連忙揮手招呼其他同伴上車。

 

三位妸娜多姿的女士搖搖擺擺地上車了,她們似乎很高興趕上了電車,興奮地喊叫着,笑容如嬌豔紅瑰綻放。

電車早已載滿乘客,她們大喊大笑後,我隔鄰的乘客主動讓座,她們也老實不客氣,在我旁邊一屁股坐了下來。

她們身形略胖,體態卻玲瓏有致,曲線美香豔如梨;高鼻厚唇的外貌,既性感又憂鬱。

 

她們安頓好後,興奮之情略減,開始以正常音量聊天,但不久竟然唱起歌來,手腳並用地打拍子,電車忽變舞池,她們一開口,如黃鶯唱歌;一拍手,如群雀起舞,真情流露,毫不掩飾,直擊心靈。

 

但其他乘客似是見怪不怪,毫無反應,雖然無人阻止、無人投訴,但她們唱了不夠一分鐘,忽然又不唱了;她們三人忽然低下頭,似在追掉誰,茫然的望向窗外,眼眶竟濕了;靜默數分鐘後,忽然又開始輕鬆地聊天,之前的沉鬱轉瞬即逝,談了沒多久,忽然又狂喜,又開始唱歌。

 

如此極喜極憂不斷循環,直至三人喧喧嘩嘩地下車,才告一段落。

 

 

這趟電車真是迷幻之旅啊,在滿員列車內,先被小偷扒包,再遇此仨美豔奇人,雖然最終去不到想去的城堡觀光,但這趟電車的奇幻歷險更刺激啊~!

 

 

回家後,我與CS Host Angela與Kico分享這三位美豔奇人的偶遇記,Angela與Kico都是地道葡萄牙人,Angela說:「我猜她們是吉卜賽人,她們就是如此大情大性,我們之前的鄰居也是吉卜賽人,凌晨三點忽然唱起極哀怨的歌。」

 

我在電車又遇扒手,雖然幸運地無損失,連忙問Angela:「會是吉卜賽人扒過我的背包嗎?」

 

Angela說:「里斯本的吉卜賽人多數不是扒手,扒手多是本地人,外貌似遊客,甚至是白人。」

 

 

我從未遇過吉卜賽人,對吉卜賽人的印象只是鐘樓駝俠的美艷吉卜賽女郎Esmeralda,久聞吉卜賽人四處流浪,並以唱歌跳舞賣藝維生,今日終於見到吉卜賽人,她們真是天生的歌手/舞者啊,一拍手是節奏,一揚手是韻律,無敵呀!

 

 

 

I heard their voice before I saw them.

I was sitting on the tram. They were running to the tram and shouting. I had no ideas what they were shouting at all. But it’s seem a big deal because they were nearly screaming.

Then the tram suddenly stopped. Because they rushed in front of the tram and stopped the tram with their bodies. One of them was slapping the tram door hard and shouting.

The tram driver show an ‘I give up’ expression and opened the door to let them in.

The lady who was slapping the door waving her hand to call her friends to get on board.

 

3 beautiful ladies get on the tram. They seems happy that they caught the tram and shouting happily and smile like red rose blooming.

The tram was full of people. Someone who sat next to me gave up their seats after they scream and laugh happily. They were siting next to me.

They are quite fat but with an excellent body shape as an exotic pear. They looked so sexy and sad with a tall nose and thick lip.

 

They seems less excited when they seated and chatting with normal volume. But they suddenly started to sing and clapping with both their hands and feet. The tram turned into a dance floor. They sang like birds and move like dancers with the purest joy which can reach the bottom of people’s hearts.

 

All the other passengers onboard gave no reaction. They sang for less than a minute and suddenly stopped even no one complained. They then lower their heads suddenly like mourning their lovers and looked out the window aimlessly. Their eyes began to wet. They quiet for a few minutes and start chatting again relaxingly. Their sadness suddenly gone. The chatting got intense and they started to sing again.

 

This extreme sadness and happiness kept repeating until they got off the tram.

 

 

It was such an exciting tram journey for me. I was pickpocketed at first then met this 3 amazing ladies in this full tram. Although I couldn’t get to the castle that I want to visit but this crazy tram trip was even more exciting~!

 

 

I shared this exciting tram trip with my CS Host Angela and Kico at home. Angela and Kico are both local Portuguese.

Angela said, ‘I guess they are gypsy. Gypsy are very direct, they would laugh hard and cry loud. Our old neighbor was gypsy and she would suddenly sing some very sad songs at 3am in the morning,’

 

I was pickpocketed in the tram and luckily nothing had lost. So I asked Angela, ‘Would those gypsies pickpocket me?’

 

Angela said, ‘Most gypsies in Lisbon are not thieves. Most of the thieves are local and looked like tourists or even Whites,’

 

I had never met a gypsy. My only image of gypsy is the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. I have heard that gypsy moved a lot and would sing and dance for a living.

I met gypsy tonight and they are really natural born singers/dancers! It’s music when they open their mouth and dance when they move their bodies. Amazing!
