I think my parents are nuts. They want to go to the Yucatan in Mexico and dig up pyramids.

我想我父母疯了们想去墨西哥的尤卡坦挖掘金字塔

 

No. change that. They already are going to the Yucatan, and I have to go with them!

换个说法们已经计划好了去尤卡坦半岛并且我得跟他们一起去

 

The trip is in three days. My dad says it'll be lots of fun.

这次旅行定在三天之后爸爸会很好玩

 

Oh, sure. Like I have nothing better to do this summer.

当然对于像我这样这个夏天没有什么好做的人来说

 

I hope they don't expect me to learn Spanish. This is where we're going!

我希望他们别让我学西班牙语这是我们要去的地方

 

At dinner tonight, my dad tried to start a discussion about Mayan Indians.

今天晚饭时爸爸试图开始讨论玛雅印第安人了

 

He said that over a thousand years ago, the Maya built great stone cities in the jungles of Mexico and Central America.

玛雅人一千多年前就在墨西哥和中美洲的丛林里建造了伟大的石头城了

 

Now the cities are in ruins, and a lot of the palaces are buried.

现在那些城市是一片废墟很多宫殿都被埋藏了

 

"Serves them right," I said, "for building in the jungle."

。”谁让他们在丛林里建的

 

My dad made a face but kept going. "The Maya lived in the cities for a long time," he said.

爸爸皱了一下儿脸继续了下去。“玛雅人在那些城市里生活了很长时间。”

 

"then they abandoned them. No one knows why.""Are the cities haunted?" I wanted to know.

然后他们抛弃了那些城市没有人知道为什么。”城市里闹鬼吗?”我想知道

 

"Oh, gosh, I hope not!" said my mother. Too bad.

我希望不!”妈妈说太糟糕了

 

I found some stuff about the Maya on the internet, but I sort of had to.

我在互联网上找到了一些关于玛雅人的东西种程度上我得这么做

 

My parents were really bugging me.

我父母一直烦着我找

 

There were a lot of pictures of pyramids, and they actually looked kind of cool.

有很多金字塔的照片实它他们看起来有点酷

 

But there was also a picture of a woman named Anne Cary Maudslay who went to the Yucatan in the 1800s.

但是也有一张名叫安妮.卡里.兹利的女性的照片19纪去过尤卡坦

 

I thought that was pretty amazing because women didn't do that sort of thing in those days.

觉得那是相当惊人的为在那个时代的女性不会做那种事儿

 

Anne had to sleep in the jungle with bugs and snakes and no toilet.

妮不得不睡在丛林中伴着虫子和蛇还没有厕所

 

And in the picture, she's wearing a long skirt and carrying a parasol! How cool is that?

照片里她的穿着长裙手持遮阳伞多酷

 

I downloaded her picture. I figure if Anne Cary Maudslay can do it, so can I. we leave tomorrow.

我下载了她的照片我想如果安.卡里.兹利能做到我也能.们明天就出发
