THE VILLAGE OF QUNU was situated in a narrow, grassy valley crisscrossed by clear streams, and overlooked by green hills.

库诺小镇坐落于狭小、青草@Anna绘馨 @部落虎 满布的山谷,清澈的溪流纵横交错,四周青山环绕。

It consisted of no more than a few hundred people who lived in huts, known as rondavels, which were beehive-shaped structures of mud walls, with a wooden pole in the center holding up a peaked, grass roof.

这里居住着的居民不足几百人。人们住在小屋里,就是那种圆形茅屋,像马蜂窝的形状,用泥糊起墙来。房屋中心的木桩撑起草屋顶。

The floor was made of crushed ant-heap, the hard dome of excavated earth above an ant colony, and was kept smooth by smearing it regularly with fresh cow dung.

地面是有压碎的蚂蚁堆积起来的,坚硬的屋顶是由蚁穴上挖来的泥土做成,通过经常用新鲜牛粪涂抹地面来保持地面的平滑。

The smoke from the hearth escaped through the roof, and the only opening was a low doorway one had to stoop to walk through.

灶台里冒出来的烟从屋顶冉冉升起,屋里唯一的出口需要人弯腰前行。

The rondavels were generally grouped together in a residential area that was some distance away from the maize fields.

圆顶木屋都聚集在居住区,不远处就是玉米地。

There were no roads, only paths through the grass worn away by barefooted boys and women.

地上没有路,唯一的路是由光脚的男孩和女人踩出来的。

The women and children of the village wore blankets dyed in ocher; only the few Christians in the village wore Western-style clothing.

村里的女人和孩子披着染成褐色的毯子;村里只有一小部分的基督徒穿着西式服装。

Cattle, sheep, goats, and horses grazed together in common pastures.

奶牛、绵羊、山羊和马儿在同一片草原上吃草

The land around Qunu was mostly treeless except for a cluster of poplars on a hill overlooking the village. The land itself was owned by the state.

除了一大片白桦林,库诺小镇周围大都没有什么树。

With very few exceptions, Africans at the time did not enjoy private title to land in South Africabut were tenants paying rent annually to the government.

在极少数情况下,那时非洲人不喜欢私人占有南部非洲的土地,而更愿意以租地者的身份每年向政府缴纳地租。

In the area, there were two small primary schools, a general store, and a dipping tank to rid the cattle of ticks and diseases.

这片地区有两所私人学校,一家综合型商店,一台用来祛除牛身上的虱子和疾病的水槽。
