“And he laughs while he does it,” he always added, scowling at his son. Yes, Father,” Hassan would mumble, looking down at his feet. But he never told on me.

“而且他在这么做的时候会大笑”,他怒视着他的儿子,补充道。是的,爸爸。哈桑会咕哝着,低头看自己的双脚。但他从不打我的小报告。

 

 Never told that the mirror, like shooting walnuts at the neighbor’s dog, was always my idea.

从不会说,镜子、用胡桃射邻居的狗其实都是我的主意。

 

The poplar trees lined the redbrick driveway, which led to a pair of wroughtiron gates. They in turn opened into an extension of the driveway into my father’s estate.The house sat on the left side of the brick path, the backyard at the end of it.

白杨矗立在通向锻铁大门的红砖车道旁,锻铁大门连接通向我父亲房产的扩展车道。房子在砖路的左边,后院则是在尽头。

 

Everyone agreed that my father, my Baba, had built the most beautiful house in the Wazir Akbar Khan district, a new and affluent neighborhood in the northern part of Kabul.

每个人都说我父亲的房子是瓦兹尔·阿克巴·汗区最漂亮的房子,这个区是喀布尔北部新兴的富裕城区。

 

Some thought it was the prettiest house in all ofKabul.

有的人认为我父亲的房子是全喀布尔最美观的房子。

 

A broad entryway flanked by rosebushes led to the sprawling house of marble floors and wide windows.

入口通道两旁种着蔷薇,通向铺着大理石地板,还有很大的窗户的杂乱的房间。

 

Intricate mosaic tiles, handpicked by Baba in Isfahan, covered the floors of the four bathrooms.

爸爸亲手在伊斯法罕选购了精美的马赛克瓷砖来铺满四个浴室的地面。

 

Gold-stitched tapestries, which Baba had bought in Calcutta, lined the walls; a crystal chandelier hung from the vaulted ceiling.

爸爸还把从加尔各答买来了金线织成的挂毯挂在了墙上,拱形的天花板上挂着水晶吊灯。

 

Upstairs was my bedroom, Baba’s room, and his study, also known as “the smoking room,” which perpetually smelled of to bacco and cinnamon.

楼上是我的卧室,和爸爸的书房,那也被称为“吸烟室”,那里永远弥漫着烟草和肉桂的气味。

 

Baba and his friends reclined on black leather chairs there after Ali had served dinner.

在阿里的服侍下吃完晚餐之后,爸爸和他的朋友躺在书房的黑色皮椅上。

 

They stuffed their pipes--except Baba always called it “fattening the pipe”--and discussed their favorite three topics: politics, business, soccer.

他们填满烟管——爸爸称它为喂饱烟管,然后谈论他们最喜爱的三个话题:政治,生意,足球。
