Dear Brian,

Cape Town is so much more mellow than Cairo. Though there are no outstanding monuments to see, the beach here has to be the most beautiful I’ve seen on my trip so far! And what’s even more amazing is that it’s a close bus ride from the center of the city! The beach is called Camps Bay, and I’ve been spending a lot of time here relaxing. I need to chill out after all the chaos in Cairo!

I’m also trying my hand at surfing. It’s a lot harder than it looks!

Enjoy Asia!

Jennifer

亲爱的布莱恩:

在开普敦比在开罗悠哉多了!这里虽然没有壮观的纪念馆,但这里的海滩是我旅行中看过最美的了!更令人惊讶的是,从市区搭公车一下子就到了!这个海滩叫做坎普斯湾,很多时间我都在这里享受悠闲。历经开罗的一片混乱之后,我实在需要放松一下!

在这里,我也尝试冲浪活动,它比看起来还要难呢!

亚洲之旅愉快!

珍妮佛

Dear Jennifer,

Sounds like you’re getting some sun and surf in South Africa! I would have thought you would be seeing exotic animals like lions and tigers. It’s surprising that you’ve been hanging out on a beach!

I’m about to head to a beach myself. I’ll be leaving for Mumbai tonight, and I’ve heard there’s a beach in the city. I don’t know whether it’s going to be as beautiful as you describe Camps Bay to be, but I’ll definitely check it out and let you know!

Happy Travels,

Brian

亲爱的珍妮佛:
看样子你在南非做水上活动!我原本以为你会去看非洲动物,像狮子或是老虎之类的。真令我惊讶,你竟然跑去海滩!

我也要前往海滩了,我今晚要前往孟买,听说那里的市区也有一个海滩。我不知道那个海滩是不是有你描述的坎普斯湾那么美,但我一定要去一探究竟再告诉你。

祝你旅行愉快

布莱恩

Reading Passage

Most people don’t think about taking a trip to South Africa, but this is an ideal vacation spot. The beaches here are some of the most stunning in the world, especially in the city of Cape Town. It’s on the southern coast of Africa and derives its name from the fact that it’s on a cape. The Atlantic coast of this cape has some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the world, and you can see some of it right in the city of Cape Town.

很多人从没想过去南非旅行,但这里真的是个理想的旅游地。这里的海滩是世界上最令人惊艳的,尤其是开普敦的海滩。开普敦在非洲的南方海岸,因位在海角上而得其名。这个海角的大西洋海岸,有世界之最的美丽沿岸风光,而有些风景在开普敦城就看得到。


桌山


Being 15 minutes from the center of the city, Camps Bay is the most popular beach in Cape Town and arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The stunning rock formations3 of The Twelve Apostles of Table Mountain form a dramatic backdrop4 to this beach. The white sand and blue waters make it a picture-perfect5 beach. Warning must be heeded6, however, for there are no lifeguards7 and the surf8 and wind here is strong, making swimming dangerous at times. The water can also be quite chilly, as the water comes straight from Antarctica9. Though the water may not be relaxing, it’s definitely exhilarating10! A little caution11 is all that is needed to have a wonderful day here.

坎普斯湾距离市中心15分钟的车程,是开普敦最多人去的海湾,而且广受讨论,是世界上最美丽的海滩之一。令人惊艳的桌山十二门徒峰,其岩石组成是海滩上最引人注目的背景。白色沙滩和蓝色海水,让它成为如诗如画般的美丽海滩。然而,一定要留意警告标志,因为这里没有救生员,这里的风浪很大,有时在这里游泳很危险。这里的海水也很冷,因为它直接来自南极大陆,虽然海水不能令人放松,但是却能让人振奋精神。只要谨慎一点,就可以在这里享受一整天。


坎普斯湾


After taking a dip, make sure you have a drink at one of the many cafes that are on nearby Victoria Road where you can have a lovely view of the sun setting over the ocean. Keep in mind that because Camps Bay is so popular and close to the city, it can get very crowded on the weekends. But it’s a great opportunity to watch the people of Cape Town enjoying their beach life.

泡过水之后,一定要到附近维多利亚街上的咖啡店喝杯咖啡,观赏太阳落入海面的美景。要记得,因为坎普斯湾很多人去,而且离市区很近,周末时非常拥挤,但这也会是看到开普敦人如何享受海滩生活的绝佳机会。
