我们到了  We have arrived

其乃基于 Peter[2007-08-10]博客的翻译本
 

这是一个闷热潮湿的夏日。蟋蟀唧唧叫个不停。这些蟋蟀可真行:你很难相信,在它们唧唧的协奏曲中我几乎听不到小黄发动机的声音。


起初,路两边都是树,后来逐渐稀疏起来。

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived


只有 33 公里了。

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived


由于我此次旅行部分目的是做善事,我的门票也被免除了。


到码头去的一小段路被水淹没了。一开始我开车慢慢靠近,然后加速驶过。小黄和我溅了一身水……这对身心俱疲的我来说真是个凉爽的见面礼。


我把小黄倒入这个拍照的位置,这时,人群中一个人走出来对我说道:“我在网站上看到过你。这是诺基亚赞助的旅行,是吧?”


他抱了抱着小黄,赞不绝口……多么美妙的车,多么美妙的旅程!

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived


这是什么?

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

啊,小黄的离地间隙……

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

“你车的底盘太低了,这条路你开不过去的!”

 

这句话我们听了多少次啊,但我们还是每次都过来了。

 

在黄河入海口我待了一会儿,任脸上的泪水逐渐干涸,既满心高兴又有一丝失落。然后,我启程赴京。

感谢诺基亚和我的 N73,使我能和大家分享我的经历。

 

Distance from Beijing:  18,825km

Distance from Changjiang Wusongkou:  17,638km

Altitude:  0m

 

It is a sweltering, humid summer day.   The crickets make a racket.  And what a racket it is: hard though it is too believe, I can barely hear Miss Daisy’s engine over their concerted chirping.     

 

At first, trees line the road, but then they gradually thin out.

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

33 kilometres to go.

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

The entrance fee is waived for the good cause that is part of my journey.

 

A brief section of road leading to the pier is flooded.  At first I approach it slowly, then speed up.  The water crashes over Miss Daisy and I…what a welcome shower the cool water is for this tired mind and body.

 

As I reverse Miss Daisy into the position for the photo, a man steps out of the crowd and says “I’ve seen you on a website.  This is a Nokia journey, isn’t it?”

 

Hugging Miss Daisy...what a car, what a journey!

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

What is this?

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

Ah, Miss Daisy’s road clearance…

 

我们到了 <wbr> <wbr>We <wbr>have <wbr>arrived

 

“Your car’s too low. You won’t get through this road! (你的车的地盘太低。你开不了这个路!)”

 

How often have we heard this said, and yet we have arrived.   

 

I remain at the mouth of the Yellow River for a moment while tears of joy and a sense of loss dry on my cheeks.   Then set course for Beijing.

Sharing this experience is made possible by Nokia and my N73
