斯德哥爾摩 CS Host

Stockholm CS Host

斯德哥爾摩的CS Host是個大家庭,右圖睡在吊床看書的是媽媽Fatima,左圖閉目打座的是爸爸Joakim,還有四個小孩,是個六人大家庭。

媽媽Fatima是兼職產婆,上門幫人接生(水中分娩為主);爸爸Joakim剛在中國留學兩周,進修中醫,他是瑞典人,卻會說少少普通話,還會用毛筆寫中文;大仔文靜腼腆,喜歡音樂;二仔是個肥仔,喜歡煮食;三女四女只有幾歲,天真活潑;家裏還有兩隻貓,黑貓躲人,白貓喜人。

 

我從挪威首都奧斯陸坐飛機,到瑞典首都斯德哥爾摩,然後由機場自行前往Fatima家,過程一波三折,這個過程中,令我反思:科技,究竟拉近了人,還是推遠了人呢?

 

我在斯德哥爾摩不住旅館,只住Fatima家,到埗前十多天我在CS網站找到Fatima,當時她已答應讓我來投宿,但我到埗前兩天都聯絡不上Fatima,我擔心事情有變卦,擔心Fatima反口拒絕收留我,Fatima無智能手機,只能以短訊或經CS網站才能聯絡她,我在挪威買的是挪威電話咭,聯繫不上Fatima的瑞典號碼,她的CS帳號亦兩日無登入。

 

我有點心慌,怕她忘記十多天前的約定。當我抵達斯德哥爾摩機場,即時買張瑞典電話卡,即時在CS網站給Fatima留下我的瑞典號碼,再即時致電Fatima,但她的電話飛去了留言,給她發的短訊又被彈回頭,當時斯德哥爾摩正下着滂沱大雨,簡直是我的心情寫照。

 

我繼續在機場打電話,打了十幾次後,仍無人接聽,我與Fatima素未謀面,有的只是十多天前、在電腦螢幕前的一句「OK」,莫非免費嘢真的不可信?我的信心忽然缺堤了,喪失了對Fatima的信任,點點茫然慢慢升起,但無時間傷心了,抹乾未能掉下的眼淚,立刻在CS網站的Stockholm Emergency Group緊急找另一個CS Host,在airbnb找房間,在HOSTEL WORLD找床位。

 

Airbnb很快有回應,host叫Anna,SEK$200一晚,房租可面交,我立時OK,離開機場,坐巴士入城。

 

我順利入了城,當我準備登上Anna家方向的鐵路(斯德哥爾摩鐵路也是港鐵營運的!)時,Fatima忽然來電,她擔心我遇上了麻煩,正奇怪我怎麼還未到她家。

事情峰迴路轉,這個轉折太突然了,我凝固了一秒,時間好像停頓了,明明放棄了的機會,卻又失而復得;剛剛蒸發了的信任,慢慢回來了。

 

無論免費的CS host Fatima,收費的airbnb host Anna/HOSTEL WORLD的旅館,我與他/她們全都素未謀面,為何我會覺得收費的較有保障?旅行就是未知,反正免費/收費的住宿都有風險,我選擇免費,起碼省了房租。

於是我回絕了airbnb的Anna,Anna當然不悅,但也寬宏大量的祝福「Anyway have a nice stay!」。

 

但問題又來了,在這蜘蛛網般的交通網絡,我該怎麼去Fatima家?

我轉身隨便抓人問路,路人要去的地方與Fatima家只差一個巴士站,於是我們就結伴而行了。路人是個黑人青年,他叫Benjamin,是個功夫迷,來年暑假想去中國學功夫,我用中文在Google搜尋,找到「少林寺住宿功夫班」,還有在香港開辨的英文功夫班,都通通轉寄給他了。

 

這時車箱傳來瑞典文廣播,Ben給我翻譯,原來電纜斷了,全線列車暫時停駛,正緊急維修,怎麼遠在斯德哥爾摩,港鐵還是那樣不濟,還是整天故障,成日加價!?

 

由於被困車箱,我與Ben聊起天來,Ben只有17歲,正考慮休學一年環遊世界,他是個黑白混血兒,父母離異,父在荷蘭,母在斯德哥爾摩,他精通荷蘭文,瑞典文,英文三語,並會少少西班牙語與中文,未來想主修人體科技學或股票學,又指中國是現時全球人體科技學最先進的國家,甚至比美國更先進,又屢指未來是中國的天下……

 

我17歲時在幹甚麼?應該是被公開考試壓得透不過氣,被告知只有考好試、讀大學、做好工一途,每天上學、背書、貼題,每天都睡不夠,既緊張,又焦慮,欲哭無淚,未敢想像自己會去旅行。

我眼前這17歲瑞典男生卻是眼睛閃閃發光,對未來有夢想(環遊世界),也有能力(精通三語)去尋夢。我卻歷盡滄桑、幾經折騰、久經磨難,比他晚了一輪才去追夢,這就是香港與瑞典的差別嗎?

 

在毛毛細雨中,我們終於到站,但眼前全是一模一樣的小屋,根本不知哪一間才是Fatima的家,我致電Fatima,才知有孩子出世,她跑去接生了,怪不得這兩天聯絡不上她,Fatima給了我孩子爸Joakim的電話,Ben與Joakim在電話以瑞典語溝通,終於在迷宮陣的小房子堆找到Fatima的家。

我謝過Ben,他笑着轉身離開,我誠心祝願他前程似錦。

然後我推開小花園的欄柵,終於到達我在斯德哥爾摩的家了。

 

 

出門來迎的是Joakim,他高高瘦瘦,頭髮往後梳成馬尾,面露温和微笑,他是「白皮黃心」,Joakim是土生土長的瑞典白人,卻醉心中醫,甚至在斯德哥爾摩的中醫診所當學徒。

我到家時,剛好是晚餐時間,Joakim煮了意大利麵(雖然好乾)、杏仁朱古力甜點(雖然太甜),但異國的熱情款待,真的非常窩心啊!

 

Joakim是整個旅行中,我遇過最「定」的人,他的心情永遠似一條直線(Fatima剛好相反,似條過山車般大起大落的螺旋線),處變不驚、驚而不動、動而不慮、慮而不妄、妄而不惑、惑而不憂、憂而不鬱、鬱而不傷、傷而不痛,真是也無風雨也無晴,如果世上有仙人,大概就像他。

 

Joakim與Fatima在「Community Centre」遇見,Community Centre的業主以市值半價出租房間,但對租客有要求,例如需為素食者、藝術家等,每客一房,廁廚共用,既能廣結志同道合之人,房租又便宜,正呀!

Joakim說此等業主不為賺錢,Community Centre也合法,又表示瑞典人的錢夠多了,瑞典人的學費+醫療費由政府全包,真的不愁生活。

在香港做任何事,目標是直接有錢/有利益才算正常,但在國外,真的可以不是這樣子,真的可以選擇不為錢而活(例如所有免費接待我的CS Host),為什麼香港人卻連選擇的權利都無?

 

文化差異真的很有趣,我們的話題又轉到了食物,我從香港帶了點花旗蔘碎,乾燥就開水飲,我請眾人沾嚐一下,Joakim不愧是學中醫的,一嗅就知那花旗蔘是好東西;二仔嗅了一下,皺一下眉,伸脷點了一下,也說「interesting」;大仔卻一口氣把一整枝花旗蔘塞入口中,「咕」一聲吞下了,Joakim與我也來不及阻止,結果第二天他病了,請假留家休養,希望不是因為那枝花旗蔘「補過頭」啦……

 

我給Joakim看了Picture the Host Project的畫,他同意讓我畫他,原來他每日都會打坐冥想數次,每次40分鐘,於是我就畫他冥想的樣子。我在香港學打坐時,都是拿個軟墊,直接坐在木板地或榻榻米上,但Joakim的西式打坐才妙,他盤腿坐在椅子上,長腿凌空,就閉目打坐了,我就趁他靜止不動的時間,快快手地畫畫,整個飯廳只有我在畫畫、他在打坐,雖然場面有些詭異,但我挺享受這段各有專注的寧靜時光,幾十分鐘後,他做些雙手打圈體操,就完成打坐了,我也差不多畫完。

 

晚上Fatima與兩個女兒都回來了,家中非常熱鬧,我就在黑白兩貓包圍下(不過牠們頸圈的鈴鐺好吵),徐徐入眠了。

 

 

第二天Fatima休假,她拉了我去社區中心學瑜伽,我一直很想學瑜伽,但總抽不出時間上堂,想不到竟是在北歐的瑞典的斯德哥爾摩,第一次接觸瑜伽!感激Fatima帶我大開眼界:)

 

瑜伽班導師是位巴西女士,學生約廿多人,都是大媽大叔,女性約佔八成,其實我完全不知巴西老師在說什麼,她一開始還半英半瑞地講解,後來完全放棄說英語,只以瑞語講解,不過影響不大,(嘗試)跟着她的動作就行,瑜伽本來就不以語言溝通,而是用身體動作來理解。

瑜伽真是拜神動作啊,幾乎全部動作都向天,人體伏地,狀甚虔誠,瑜伽更是全身一齊拉筋,不是只拉一個特定部位,非常統一舒服,我喜歡雙手向上、鼻朝天的動作,簡單易做又舒展!

我猜每組瑜伽動作應該有其喻意,今日的「瑜伽」剔走了宗教內涵,只保留每組動作的精妙外框,變成一種純粹的舒展運動,瑜伽這千年演變史,真有趣啊,未來有機會也想繼續研究:)

 

之後Fatima又帶我去水温27度的室內泳池游水(其實幾凍),之後還帶我焗了木室炭火桑拿,瑞典的桑拿比較濕潤,熱度較低,比較舒服。

 

 

同日Fatima帶我到她朋友家吃午飯,友人是Mary Ann,吔哎,瑞典人的關係圖真令人難以想像啊……

原來Fatima離過婚,大仔二仔就是與前夫所生,兩個小女兒是與Joakim所生,Mary Ann就是前夫之母,但二人友好,所以離婚後也保持來往,而Mary Ann又是Joakim的中醫客人。

Fatima與Joakim現在是同居,我問Fatima:「未來會與Joakim結婚嗎?」

她說:「為何?結婚我試過,都係咁,瑞典有很多非婚生小孩,待遇與婚生小孩一樣,同居(一定年數的)男女在法律上形同夫妻,為何仲要結婚?」

在香港,Fatima的情況是「離婚婦人」、「失婚媽媽」,都是負面標籤,但Fatima絲毫未被「離婚」、「失婚」所掣肘,甚至覺得結不結婚都無所謂,瑞典女人活得多自在。

當天天氣很好,我們就在戶外吃午餐,藍天白雲青草地,陽光温暖卻不熱,我躺下小休,陽光就是我的被子,好~舒~服~呀!!

 

我來到Fatima的家,與這裏的人傾過偈、食過飯、畫過畫,這些瑣碎日常都是很重要的事,是由陌生人變為朋友的過程,是互信建立的過程;「Fatima」不再只是一個CS網站上的陌生名字,不僅只是一個免費床位,更是我第一位瑞典朋友。

 

 

科技創造了我與Fatima認識的契機,若無CS網站,我此生肯定不會認識Fatima,科技大大拓展了我的接觸面,但時刻假設在線,一旦稍微斷線,即面臨信心危機,所引起的恐慌好大。

在未有智能手機的年代,我想我仍會信任着Fatima十幾日前的承諾,無需到埗前再確認,直接踩去Fatima家,省了在機場經歷的信心危機,時刻都令我在線的智能手機,反而令我失卻了「船到橋頭自然」的那份霸氣、悠閒與從容……

 

科技,究竟拉近了人,還是推遠了人呢?

 

甚麼是Couchsurfing? 

 

My Stockholm CS Host is a big family. Fatima is lying on the hammock and on the right picture. Joakim is meditating on a chair and on the left picture. This is a 6 people family with 4 kids.

Fatima the mum is a part time midwife and would visit people’s home to help with the process of giving birth. Joakim the dad just stayed in Beijing for 2 weeks to study Chinese medicine. He is a Swedish but he can speak little Mandarin and even write Chinese with writing brush.

The elder son is a little shy and he likes music. The younger son is a fatty who would like to be a chef when he grows up. The lovely daughters are very young and are in kindergarten. There are 2 cats at home—the black cat hides from people but the white cat plays with people.

 

I fly from Oslo, Norway to Stockholm, Sweden by plane and I have to get to Fatima’s home by myself. That was an amazing journey and makes me re-think: Is the technology gets people closer or pushes people farer?

 

I did not stay in any paid hostel in Stockholm and only stay with Fatima. I have found Fatima on CS website around 10 days before I arrived in Stockholm. She agreed to host me but I couldn’t contact her for 2 days before my arrival. I was worry things have changed or Fatima changed her mind and refused to host me. Fatima did not have a smart phone. She could only be contacted by Swedish SMS or CS website. I bought my Norwegian SIM card in Norway and couldn’t contact Fatima’s Swedish number and her CS account had not been logged in for 2 days.

 

I was worry. I was afraid Fatima forgot her promise which had made 10 days ago. I bought a Swedish SIM card immediately once I arrived in Stockholm airport and left my Swedish number to Fatima on her CS account and rang her but her number had no answer and the SMS messages I just sent to her were all rebounded. It was raining heavily in Stockholm that day and it was just like my mood.

 

I kept on ringing Fatima in the airport but still no answer. Fatima and I have never met and all I had was just an ‘OK’ on my PC screen around 10 days ago. Is it free stuff always unreliable? Suddenly I lost my confident on Fatima. I was getting lost, worry and frustrated. But I didn’t have time to be sad and I just wiped dry the tears that hadn’t been dropped and looking for another CS host on Stockholm Emergency Group, looking for a room on Airbnb and looking for a bed on HOSTEL WORLD.

 

There is a respond on Airbnb soon. The Airbnb host is Anna, charged SEK$200 per night and the rent can be paid on site. I immediately said yes and leave the airport and ride on a bus to downtown.

 

I got to Stockholm downtown. Just when I about to board the train (Train in Stockholm was run by HK MTR!) toward Anna home, Fatima rang me. Fatima worried I had trouble and wondered why did I take so long to get to her home.

It was such a surprise and time seem frozen and I freeze for one second. The opportunity I just gave up swam back to me and the confidence I just lost slower restore.

 

I had never met the free CS host Fatima nor the paid airbnb host Anna nor the hostels on HOSTEL WORLD. Why did I believe the paid accommodation more reliable than the unpaid Couch Surfing? Travel is the courage to unknown. I chose the free CS, at least I can save the rent, in the fact that paid or unpaid accommodation would have risks.

So I rejected Anna the airbnb host. Anna of course was unhappy but she still blessed me ‘anyway have a nice stay!’

 

Here came the question, how can I get to Fatima home in a web-like transport system in Stockholm?

I just grabbed a guy randomly and asked for the direction on the platform. The guy was going to a bus stop just one stop away from Fatima so we travel together. He was a black young man named Benjamin. Ben loves Kung Fu and planning to learn Kung Fu in China in summer next year. I use Chinese to search in Google and found a ‘Shaolin Kung Fu classes’ in China and Kung Fu classes in English in Hong Kong and I forward all the info to him.

 

There was a Swedish broadcast in the train suddenly. Ben translated for me. The broadcast said the cable was broken so the trains stopped and an emergency repairing was carrying out. It was just ridiculous that the HK MTR train kept broke down and increased prices even far away in Stockholm.

 

Ben and I started chatting in the caged train. Ben was 17 years old and thinking of taking a gap year and travel around the world. He is a mix of black and white with divorced parents. His dad is in the Netherlands and his mum is in Stockholm. He mastered Dutch, Swedish and English and can speak little Spanish and Chinese. He wants to study human technology or Stock market in college and said China has the best human tech on Earth, even more advance than USA and keep saying China would be the world leader in the future…

 

What was I doing when I was 17? I was under a great pressure of public exams and was being told there is just only one way of life: good exams, good college and good career. I went to school every day and had to recite everything and had not enough sleep every day. I was nervous, frustrated and anxiety. I couldn’t imagine I would travel around the globe.

The eyes are shinning of this 17 years old Ben. He had a dream (travel around the world), he had the ability (master 3 languages) to achieve it. I undergo so much and start to chase my dream a decade later than him. Is this the difference between Hong Kong and Sweden?

 

We finally arrived the station under drizzle. We have no idea which house is Fatima home in the all-same-looking little houses before us. I rang Fatima and she told me there was a new born baby so she was on duty. I finally understood why I was unable to contact her for 2 days. She gave me the kids’ dad, Joakim number to me and Ben and Joakim spoke in Swedish and we finally found Fatima home in the maze of all similar little houses.

I thanked Ben and he left with a smile. I wish him every success in his life.

Then I pushed open the wooden fence in the little garden and finally arrive the home of my CS host in Stockholm.

 

Joakim was at the door and welcome me. He is tall and thin and all his hair was tied as a ponytail. He always had a warm smile. Joakim was actually a ‘white skin yellow heart’. He is a native Swedish and found Chinese medicine very fascinated and is an apprentice in a Chinese medicine clinic in Stockholm.

They were having dinner when I arrived at the door. Joakim cooked pasta (although too dry) and almond chocolate dessert (although too sweet) for me. It was a really warm welcome!

 

Joakim is the calmest person I have ever met in my travel. His mood is always like a straight line (Fatima is the opposite. Her mood is always like a roller caster spiral) There is neither sunshine nor storm for Joakim. If there is fairy, Joakim is it.

 

Joakim and Fatima met in ‘community centre’. The landlord of community centre usually rent out the rooms half the market price but request quality tenants such as vegetarians, artists…etc. Each tenant can occupy a room and share the toilet+kitchen. Tenants can enjoy a cheap rent and meet lots of people with the same interests, how cool!

 

Joakim said the landlord of community centre is not aim on profit making and community centre is legal. Joakim said the Swedish people had enough money—the tuitions and medicine fees are all looked after by the Swedish government. No worry on life.

 

The target must be profit making (money or benefits) in term of doing ANYTHING in order to be classified as normal in Hong Kong. People really don’t have to be profit making all the time BEYOND Hong Kong. People really can choose not to live FOR money (such as CS hosts host me for FREE) Why can’t Hong Kongers have the basic freedom of choices?

 

Culture difference is really interesting. Our topic change to food. I brought some crushed ginseng from Hong Kong and would soak a bit of ginseng into hot water and drink it if felt dry. I show the ginseng to them and Joakim knows the ginseng was good just by smell. The younger son takes a bit of ginseng and smell and frowns and tastes a little smash and leaves an ‘it’s interesting’ comment. The elder son just put a whole branch of ginseng into his mouth and swallows it. Joakim and I can’t even stop him. He was sick the other day and I just hope that ginseng was not a too-strong supplement for him…

 

I show Joakim the Picture the Host Project and he agrees to pose for me. He would meditate every day for 40 minutes and I draw the picture while he was meditating. I would put a soft cushion on the wooden floor or tatami and sit on it when I was in a meditating class in Hong Kong. Joakim was meditating in a very interesting way. He sat on a chair and his long legs just fly in the air and start meditating. I did the picture when he was still. Although it was a bit strange that one person is drawing and the other person is meditating without a word in the big dining room but I was quite enjoy this quiet period. Joakim did some arms stretching movements after around 40 minutes and finish his meditating and so did I finish the painting.

 

Fatima and her two little daughters were back at home at night and it was crowd with joy. I went into dreams with a black cat and a white cat beside me. (but their bell collar was so noisy…)

 

 

Fatima has a day off the other day and we went to the community centre for a yoga class together. I always want to learn yoga but never can squeeze time to learn. I never imagine that my first yoga experience would be in Stockholm, Sweden, North Europe! Thanks Fatima:)

 

The tutor of the yoga class is a Brazilian lady and there were around 20 students. Most of them are in middle age and 80% was women.

I have absolutely no idea what the Brazilian tutor was instructing but it was OK. She was instructing in half English half Swedish at the beginning but just switch to Swedish completely later on. I just (try to) follow her movement. Yoga is an art that have to use the body to understand but not language after all.

Yoga is really an art created for worship! Almost every position would point to the sky and lie on the ground to pay respect to God. Yoga stretches the WHOLE body in one pose rather than stretch only one part of body which I learnt in secondary school. I like the simple ‘hands up nose up’ position, simple and comfort!

I guess there are meanings of every yoga pose but modern yoga neglect its religion concept and just keep its prefect stretching pose and transform yoga into a modern sport. This thousand year’s evolution of yoga is so interesting. It would be great to study further in the future:) 

 

Fatima and I swam in a 27 degrees (actually it was quite chilly) indoor-swimming pool after yoga. I tried a Swedish wooden-house-with-charcoal-fire-sauna. The Swedish sauna is a bit cooler and wetter (and more comfortable for me) than sauna I tried in Asia.

 

Fatima then brought me to her friend’s home to have lunch. Her friend is Mary Ann and the Swedish style relationship just blows my mind…

Fatima divorced once. The sons are children with the ex-husband and the daughters are children with Joakim. Mary Ann is the mother of her ex-husband. Fatima and Mary Ann remains good friend all along and Mary Ann is a patient in Joakim’s Chinese medicine clinic.

Fatima and Joakim are living together with the kids now. I ask Fatima, ‘Will you and Joakim get marry in the future?’

She said, ‘Why? I have tried marriage. It’s no big deal. There are many children born out of wedlock and their treatments are just like legitimate children. Cohabit couple (with a certain time period) is similar to married couple in law. Why do I have to be married?’

Fatima would be classified as ‘Divorced woman’ or ‘No-marriage mother’ in Hong Kong. Both tags are negative. The Fatima in my eyes never be bothered by ‘Divorced’ or ‘No-marriage’ and doesn’t believe marriage is a MUST for woman. Swedish women really live an unrestrained life, how cool!

 

We have a perfect weather that day and we have our lunch outdoor. Blue sky, white cloud, green grass and warm sun. I lie down and have a nap and the sun is my blanket, so~comfortable!!

 

 

I came to Fatima home and chatting, eating and drawing with her family. These trivial daily are very important. It is the process from stranger to friend. ‘Fatima’ is no longer only a name on CS website but my first Swedish friend.

Technology creates an opportunity for me to meet Fatima. I definitely won’t meet Fatima in my life without Couch Surfing website. Technology has broadly opened up my horizon but a crisis of confidence and fear would be triggered once the contact is lost if on-line be assumed constantly.

 

I think I would believe the promise which Fatima has made 10 days ago on an era without smart phone. I would just go straight to her home without re-confirm her hosting status 2 days before my arrival and the crisis of confidence and fear I undertake in the airport won’t happen at all. I lost my relaxed and calm with my on-line-constantly smart phone…

 

Is the technology get people closer or push people farer?
