Mario lived in Mexico City. His mother and father had moved there from Southern Mexico before He was born. Mario’s parents often talked about the South and the Mayan people who lived there. Sometimes his father described ancient Mayans ruins he had seen in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula. Mario searched for these places on the map and spent hours looking at clay figures, stone sculptures, and ancient wall paintings in the Mayan Room of the anthropology museum.


马里奥住在墨西哥城他的父母在他出生之前就从墨西哥南部搬到那里了马里奥的父母经常谈起南方和住在那里玛雅人时候他父亲会给他描述自己曾在尤卡坦半岛丛林见过的古代玛雅遗迹马里奥在地图上查找过这些地方还在人类学博物馆的玛雅室里花了几个小时看陶俑石雕和古老的壁画。


One night Mario lay in his bed listening to the familiar sounds of apartment building where he lived. He could hear the upstairs neighbor’s footsteps and the downstairs neighbor’s radio. An airplane flew overhead and cars on the avenue honked their horns. Mario held his breath and tried to hear the footsteps of an ocelot or the cry of a Macaw.


有一天晚上马里奥躺在床上听着他住的公寓楼里的各种熟悉的声音他听到楼上邻居的脚步声和楼下邻居的收音机声一架飞机从上空飞过车在大街上鸣着喇叭马里奥屏住了呼吸想听听豹猫的脚步声或者金刚鹦鹉的啼叫声


"Caw!" Mario woke up with a start. He was in a hammock! It was morning and the birds outside called loudly. No one else was in the room, but there were some delicious-looking tortillas and a steaming bowl of black beans on a small table near his hammock. Mario ate breakfast quickly and went outside. In the garden there were two children waiting for Mario. Their names were Fernando and Margarita. They spoke to Mario in Mayan at first, but they switched to Spanish when he didn’t understand. "Ven con nosotros." They said, "Come with us."


 !”马里奥突然惊醒了他睡在一张吊床上这是一个早晨鸟儿在外面大声鸣叫间里没有其他人他吊床旁边的小桌子上放着一些看起来很好吃的玉米饼还有一碗热气腾腾的黑豆马里奥赶紧吃完早餐走到外面去园里有两个孩子在等着马里奥们的名字叫费尔南多和玛格丽特刚开始们和马里奥说玛雅语发现他不懂之后就改说西班牙语了 跟我们来!”们说:“跟我们来!”  



With a basket of tortillas, a large piece of cheese, several mangoes, a gourd full of water, they set off down the river in the direction of the sea. The day was warm and still.


带着一篮子玉米饼一大块奶酪个芒果和装得满满的一葫芦水们出发了顺流而下驶向大海天暖洋洋的一点风也没有。
