    Navigating on the Erie Canal

    航行於伊利運河上

    It's one of the things I want to do in the next few years.

    Oh, my dream, my dream! From Buffalo, through Albany, then up through Lake Champlain, Burlington, VT...O my dream, my dream!

    一般這種句子若有隱喻的話,也只有紐約上州(New York Upstate)當地的人才會懂。所以根據我的理解與判斷,應該沒有什麼隱喻。

    原來如此。一個可能性是:早期的船行在運河中,需要驢子來拉纜繩。因為帆船的操作受風力及風向的限制。自從發明了汽船(power boat)之後,就可以自由航行,不需要靠驢子了。

    另一個可能性是指:出不了一個受限的環境。運河畢竟只是一條狹窄的水道。

    LOL, Erie Canal hardly need any navigation skill to sail through. It is now at least 120ft wide and 12 ft deep. It is beautiful and free (for small boats). Very little cargo traffic.

    The only thing you need to be careful is those drunken dudes, especially during the night. Otherwise, smooth cruise for sure. A good practice run for armatures, like me.
