A few hours later; choosing a nearby guesthouse for the night
Morley: Wow, look at all these little hotels! Wow, that one looked almost Swiss!
Dan: This place has really become crowded in the last few years. There's a whole rainbow of guesthouses.
Morley: Are there really enough tourists to support all this development?
Dan: That's a very good question, but we're here at least.
Morley: But this place seems so overdeveloped for somewhere so remote.
Dan: You can say that again. I don't think there was any zoning done here.

(续上期)

几个小时后,正在挑选附近一家民宿过夜
莫理:哇,看这些小旅馆!哇,那间看起来好瑞士!
阿丹:最近几年这地方的确变得很拥挤。这里有很多民宿。
莫理:真的有那么多观光客来支撑这么多的开发吗?
阿丹:好问题,但至少我们来这儿了。
莫理:就一个这么偏远的地方而言,似乎过度开发了。
阿丹:你说的没错。我不认为这里有做过任何区域规划。

When migrating, the whales can be traveling at speeds of about 12 km an hour and can dive under for anywhere between five and forty minutes, but with many years of experience Max usually guided our boat to exactly the right place to provide us with spectacular sighting. As the whales break the surface like submarines, the water spill off their broad dark backs and huge tails. Then, with a powerful downstroke, they dive back into the depths of the sea, leaving just a smooth glassy patch of water or "footprint" on the surface to indicate where they had been.

鲸在迁徙时的速度可以达到约12公里/小时,而且能下潜到水中任何地方达5到40分钟不等,但有着多年丰富经验的马克斯却常常能将我们的船准确地开到鲸出没的水域,使我们有幸目睹那壮观的景象。当鲸像潜水艇一般浮出海面时,海水从它们宽阔的黑色脊背和硕大的尾部落下。随后,它们又一猛子扎入深邃的大海,将一片光滑晶莹的细浪或者说"足迹"留在海面,表示它们曾到此一游。

spectacular a. 壮观的,壮丽的
downstroke n. 向下的一击

 
 => 简明语法


be going to形式表示意图 (1)

be going to表示主语进行某一将来行动的打算。这种打算常经过预先考虑并含有已做好某些准备的意思,因此通常认为用be going to表达的行动很可能会见诸实施,虽然不具有现在进行时所表示的对将来的确定的安排的概念。

be going to结构带时间状语可以用来表示最近将来的行动。在这种情况下,它可用来代替现在进行时。可以说:
I'm/I am meeting Tom at the station at six.
我6点钟到车站接汤姆。
I'm/I am going to meet Tom at the station at six.
我打算6点钟到车站接汤姆。

注意:I'm meeting Tom含有和汤姆约好的意思,而I'm going to meet Tom则没有,我去后汤姆可能会感到意外。
