赛事I was then curious, indeed, to see it; and when I came to it, itwas nothing but this: it was a timber house, or a house built, aswe call it in England, with lath and plaster, but all thisplastering was really China ware - that is to say, it was plasteredwith the earth that makes China ware. The outside, which the sunshone hot upon, was glazed, and looked very well, perfectly white,and painted with blue figures, as the large China ware in Englandis painted, and hard as if it had been burnt. As to the inside,all the walls, instead of wainscot, were lined with hardened andpainted tiles, like the little square tiles we call galley-tiles inEngland, all made of the finest china, and the figures exceedingfine indeed, with extraordinary variety of colours, mixed withgold, many tiles making but one figure, but joined so artificially,the mortar being made of the same earth, that it was very hard tosee where the tiles met. The floors of the rooms were of the samecomposition, and as hard as the earthen floors we have in use inseveral parts of England; as hard as stone, and smooth, but notburnt and painted, except some smaller rooms, like closets, whichwere all, as it were, paved with the same tile; the ceiling and allthe plastering work in the whole house were of the same earth; and,after all, the roof was covered with tiles of the same, but of adeep shining black. This was a China warehouse indeed, truly andliterally to be called so, and had I not been upon the journey, Icould have stayed some days to see and examine the particulars ofit. They told me there were fountains and fishponds in the garden,all paved on the bottom and sides with the same; and fine statuesset up in rows on the walks, entirely formed of the porcelainearth, burnt whole.2020丹麦U17赛事丹麦

赛事As this is one of the singularities of China, so they may beallowed to excel in it; but I am very sure they excel in theiraccounts of it; for they told me such incredible things of theirperformance in crockery-ware, for such it is, that I care not torelate, as knowing it could not be true. They told me, inparticular, of one workman that made a ship with all its tackle andmasts and sails in earthenware, big enough to carry fifty men. Ifthey had told me he launched it, and made a voyage to Japan in it,I might have said something to it indeed; but as it was, I knew thewhole of the story, which was, in short, that the fellow lied: soI smiled, and said nothing to it. This odd sight kept me two hoursbehind the caravan, for which the leader of it for the day fined meabout the value of three shillings; and told me if it had beenthree days journey without the wall, as it was three days within,he must have fined me four times as much, and made me ask pardonthe next council-day. I promised to be more orderly; and, indeed,I found afterwards the orders made for keeping all together wereabsolutely necessary for our common safety.丹麦2020丹麦U17赛事赛事In two days more we passed the great China wall, made for afortification against the Tartars: and a very great work it is,going over hills and mountains in an endless track, where the rocksare impassable, and the precipices such as no enemy could possiblyenter, or indeed climb up, or where, if they did, no wall couldhinder them. They tell us its length is near a thousand Englishmiles, but that the country is five hundred in a straight measuredline, which the wall bounds without measuring the windings andturnings it takes; it is about four fathoms high, and as many thickin some places.丹麦赛事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.丹麦
