Flap, flap, flap! A flock of flamingos passed by overhead, "Acompanenos a Chichen Itza!" they cried. "Come with us to Chichen Itza!" Holding tightly to the flamingos’ legs, Mario and his friends floated up and away from the river and over the sea of treetops. Soon they could see white stone pyramids rising above the trees below-the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza! The flamingos flew lower and dropped their charges gently on top of the Temple of Warriors.


棱扑棱扑棱! 一群火烈鸟从头顶飞过。“跟我们去奇琴伊察吧!”它们大叫着跟我们去奇琴伊察吧!”紧紧地抓着火烈鸟的腿马里奥和他的朋友飞起来了飞离小河飞过林海不一会儿在古老的玛雅城市奇琴伊察下面们就能看到白色的石头金字塔耸立在树丛中火烈鸟飞得越来越低把他们轻轻地放到了勇士庙的顶部。


Inside the temple there was a fascinating wall painting of an ancient Mayan village. As they stood looking, Mario wondered about the ancestors who had made the mural. They had also traveled in canoes, and maybe they had spoken the same Mayan language as Fernando and Margarita. Had they also spoken with flamingos and shivered at the sound of howler monkeys.


 
庙里面有一幅迷人的壁画画描绘了一个古老的玛雅村庄们站在那里看着马里奥很好奇想知道谁是壁画的最初创作者看到那些人也曾驾着独木舟出行过,(马里奥猜想许他们也像费尔南多和玛格丽特一样说玛雅语吧们有没有跟火烈鸟们说过话没有被吼猴的叫声吓得颤抖过呢?


"Vamos a la selva!" said Fernando. "Let’s go to the jungle!"

们去丛林吧!”费尔南多说 们去丛林吧!”


They walked out of the city and into the jungle beyond.  It was getting late.

Mario helped Fernando and Margarita make a palm leaf shelter to sleep in. Soon it was too dark to see, and they settled down to sleep.  As night fell, the jungle was full of sounds. A macaw gave a loud screech, and a jaguar growled and sharpened its claws. Mario heard the peaceful sounds of sleep from Fernando and Margarita and closed his eyes.


们走出小城进远处的丛林天色渐渐晚了下来马里奥用棕榈叶做了一个小棚子让费尔南多和玛格丽特睡在里面不多会儿天黑得什么也看不到了们就安顿下来睡觉了夜幕落下了丛林里满是响声一只金刚鹦鹉尖叫了一声一只美洲虎咆哮着磨着它的爪子马里奥听着费尔南多和玛格丽特平静的睡声闭上了眼睛。


In the morning, Mario realized he was in his room in the city. Downstairs someone was listening to the radio. Cars on the avenue were honking their horns. Was it a dream? Mario thought for a moment and tried to remember anything-the sounds and colors. Margarita and Fernando, the excitement he had felt when he saw the flamingos and heard the howler monkeys. The Mario remembered the mural paintings he had seen in Chichen itza, and he had an idea. He would paint pictures of what he had seen so he would never forget any of it.


早上醒马里奥发现自己还是在他所居住的那个城市里自己的房间里楼下有人在听着收音机大街上汽车鸣着喇叭难道是梦吗马里奥想了一会儿试图回想起所有的一切——那些声音和颜色, 玛格丽塔和费尔南多以及他看到火烈鸟和听到吼猴时的兴奋感马里奥记起了在奇琴伊察看到的那幅壁画他想出来一个主意他要用图画描绘出他所看到的一切这样他就永远不会忘记其中的任何东西。
