☆The architecture is the most impressive, isn't it? 这座建筑给人的印象很深刻,不是吗?

☆We'd better begin with the ancient Egyptian collection. 我们最好从古埃及的收藏品看起。

☆You'd be fascinated by what there is on display. 你会被陈列的文物吸引住。

☆All the exhibits here were funeral objects for emperors and noblemen in ancient times. 所有的展品都是古代王公贵族的殉葬品。

☆I've been looking forward to a chance to go there. 我一直在盼望能有机会去那儿一趟。

☆We can take you to most of the places of interest in a couple of days. 只要花两三天时间,我们就可以带您到各主要观光点游览一遍。

☆The Great Pyramid was built thousands of years ago for a king called Khufu. 大金字塔是由几千年前为一个叫胡夫的国王所建的。

☆I reached the top of it. It's over 144 meters high. On the top you can see the smaller pyramids and Sphinx, the great stone statue of the lion with a human head. To the east you can see the green Nile Valley and Cairo. 我一直爬到了顶上。有144米高。在顶上可以看到其他小金字塔和狮身人面像。向东你可以看到绿色的尼罗河谷和开罗城。

A:Here we are, Mr. Harris. This is Hotel Cleopatra.

B:What a lovely place! How far is it from here to the beach?

A:... only about a two-minute walk.

B:Good. It's quite warm today. How hot is it here in the hottest month of the year?

A:About 28℃.

B:That would be quite comfortable then.

A:我们到了,哈里斯先生。这里就是克娄巴特拉女王饭店。

B:这地方可真漂亮。从这里到海边有多远?

A:......步行只需两分钟。

B:不错。今天可真暖和。这里一年中最热的月份能有多热?

A:大约28℃。

B:那是相当舒适的喽。

A:We're going through the Suez Canal now, Mr. Harris.

B:Hmm... it doesn't look very wide. How wide is it?

A:About 60 meters..., and it's 162 kilometers long.

B:Really? This is a big ship. How deep is the Canal?

A:The average depth is about 10 meters..., but they're going to make it deeper.

B:That will be a hard job, I'm sure.

A:Yes, it will. Well, Mr. Harris, are you coming on the excursion to Cairo to day?

B:Oh, yes! How far is it?

A:It's about 150 kilometers.

B:I see. How long will it take to get there?

A:Only three hours.

A:我们马上就要通过苏伊士运河了,哈里斯先生。

B:嗯......它看上去不太宽,它有多宽呢?

A:约有60米......,它的长度是162千米。

B:是吗?我们坐的可是条大船,运河有多深呢?

A:平均深度为10米......不过人们打算把它再加深些。

B:那可够难的。

A:是的,的确。对了,哈斯先生,今天您参加去开罗的团体游览吗?

B:哦,是的!开罗离这里有多远?

A:大约150千米。

B:明白了。到那儿得多久呢?

A:只需3个小时。

A:Do you have any vacation plans?

B:Not exactly, but I have made up my mind to see the Great Pyramid in Egypt for a few days.

A:Wow, great! I went there two years ago. It's one of the most interesting places I've ever seen.

B:I was told that those tombs are actually used to keep the kings corpse.

A:You're right. They are not only used to keep them safe after their death, but also to hold their treasures. As a matter of fact, the huge stone pyramids were built over those tombs.

B:How many of them are there?

A:They say there are over eighty pyramids in Egypt.

B:Where are those pyramids located?

A:They are all on the west bank of the Nile River.

B:Which is the most famous one?

A:The Great Pyramid. It was built thousands of years ago for a king called Khufu.

A:你假期有什么安排吗?

B:还没完全定下来,但我决定要花几天时间去看埃及的大金字塔。

A:哇,太好了!我两年前去过那儿。那是我看过的最有意思的地方之一。

B:我听说那些建筑都是用来保存国王尸体的。

A:你说得对。金字塔不仅是为了保护他们死后的安全,也是为了保存他们的财宝。实际上,那些大石头砌成的金字塔是建在那些国王坟墓上的。

B:有多少个金字塔?

A:据说埃及有80多个。

B:那些金字塔都在什么地方?

A:它们都在尼罗河的西岸。

B:哪个金字塔最有名?

A:大金字塔。那是几千年前为一个叫胡夫的国王所建的。

A:Hello, it's my first time in Egypt. What would you advise me to see here?

B:There are many famous resorts in Egypt. You can have a good time here.

A:But I'm going to stay here only for two days.

B:I'm afraid two days isn't enough for you to see all the places of interest.

A:What shall I do then?

B:If I were you, the pyramid would be my first choice. It's so magnificent.

A:It's really worth seeing. By the way, I'd like to buy some souvenirs.

B:You needn't worry about it. There are many stores at the scenic spots. I'm sure you can get what you want.

A:OK. I know what to do now. Thank you.

A:你好,这是我第一次来埃及。你看我在这儿游览什么地方好?

B:埃及有很多有名的景点。你可以在这好好玩。

A:但是我只打算在这里待两天。

B:恐怕两天的时间不够游览所有的名胜古迹。

A:那我怎么办呢?

B:如果我是你,金字塔是我第一个要观光的古迹。太壮观了。

A:这确实值得一看。另外,我想买些纪念品。

B:你不必担心,风景区有很多商店。我保证你能买到需要的纪念品。

A:好的。现在我知道要做什么了。谢谢。

A:It's such a comfortable hotel with a magnificent view of the sea.

B:Yes. How far is it from here to the Great Pyramid?

A:Not very far, I think. Let's drive to visit it.

B:Good idea. Let's go.

A:Look, that's the Great Pyramid!

B:Wow, it looks so magnificent and sublime! Do you know how high it is?

A:According to the textbook, it is about 137 meters tall.

B:How wide is the base?

A:About 230 meters.

B:How old is it?

A:It's nearly 4,500 years old.

B:It's inconceivable how it was completed without modern machines.

B:Now, let's go to the Suez Canal. (A moment later) We're going through the Suez Canal now.

B:It seems to me that it isn't so wide as I imagined. How wide is it?

A:About 60 meters wide and 162 kilometers long.

B:How deep then?

A:The average depth is about 10 meters.

A:这家宾馆可以眺望海景,真舒服。

B:没错。这里离大金字塔有多远?

A:我想不会太远。我们驱车前往吧。

B:好主意。走吧。

A:看,那就是大金字塔!

B:哇,可真雄伟壮观呀!你知道它有多高吗?

A:教科书上讲大约有137米。

B:有多宽呢?

A:230米。

B:有多久历史了?

A:大约4500年了。

B:没有现代化的机器,他们是怎么将它建成的,这真是不可思议。

A:我们现在去苏伊士运河。(过了一会儿)我们正在穿越苏伊士运河。

B:看起来它不像我想象的那么宽阔。它到底有多宽?

A:60米宽,162千米长。

B:那么有多深呢?

A:平均深度10米。
