21、I learned about engineering and how things worked, not at school but by taking apart and studying these fabulously complex devices. 

我学到了关于引擎和这些东西如何运作了,不是在学校学的而是将这些东西拆开,然后研究这个极好的复杂的设备。

22、I did this for hours every day, apparently avoiding electrocution. Life was good.

我每天都花几个小时在上面,很显然避免了触电身亡。生活如此美好。

23、However, every summer, sadly, the machines got left behind while my parents and I traveled overseasto experience history, art and design. 

然而,每个夏天,十分忧伤,这些机械都被遗忘了当我和父母出国考察历史艺术和设计。

24、We visited the great museums and historic buildings of both Europe and the Middle East, but to encourage my growing interest in science and technology, they would simply drop me off in places like the London Science Museum, where I would wander endlessly for hours by myself studying the history of science and technology.

我们访问了包括欧洲和中东的最好的博物馆和历史建筑,但是为了刺激我对科学和技术的益发热爱,他们会将我凡在伦敦的科学旅馆,在那里无尽的时间给我学习科学和技术的历史。

25、Then, when I was about nine years old, we went to Rome.

26、On one particularly hot summer day, we visited a drum-shaped building that from the outside was not particularly interesting. 

在一个特别热的夏天,我访问了鼓状的建筑,那个从外观上不是十分有趣的建筑。

27、My dad said it was called the Pantheon, a temple for all of the gods. 

爸爸说这个名为万神殿,一个所有上帝的殿。

28、It didn't look all that special from the outside, as I said, but when we walked inside, I was immediately struck by three things: First of all, it was pleasantly cool despite the oppressive heat outside. 

这个在外观上正如我说的那样看上去不是十分特别,但当我走进去,我马上被三样东西吸引了:第一个,尽管外面异常炎热,里面却十分清凉。

29、It was very dark, the only source of light being an big open hole in the roof. 

这里十分黑,唯一个光源来自屋顶的一个大洞。

30、Dad explained that this wasn't a big open hole, but it was called the oculus, an eye to the heavens. 

父亲解释说这不是一个大洞,这个名为眼,也就是天堂之眼。
