     Todd: So, Jeff, we're talking about odd jobs. What's a job that you would like to have? What's a job that you think would be one of the coolest jobs to have?

托德:杰夫,我们接着谈工作。你想做哪种工作?你认为哪种工作是最酷的工作?

Jeff: Difficult question, Todd. I guess the job that I would like to do, it might not be the coolest job, but I think it would be a fun job and I think it would pay OK, would be running a small tour company, so taking small groups of people to exotic locations like India and having a sort of very intimate tour so that you don't stand out in the country you're in and the people you're taking on the tour get to sort of blend in and see some of the real views of the country.

杰夫:托德,这是个很难回答的问题。我想做的工作可能并不是最酷的工作,不过我认为那会是个有意思的工作,而且薪水应该也不错,我想经营一家小型的旅游公司,带一些人去印度这样有异国情调的地方进行一次温馨的旅游,我希望游客在去旅行的国家不会显得太突出,而且可以让游客融入环境,游览那个国家真正的景观。

Todd: Now, that actually surprises me a little bit because you're a very worldly person Jeff and you're very conscious about culture and things like that. Don't you worry that if you have a job where you're bringing people into another culture that you maybe ruin it or spoil the culture a little bit?

托德:这令我有点惊讶,因为你是一个经验非常丰富的人,你很在意文化之类的事情。带人们去体验另一种文化可能会破坏那种文化,你不会担心吗?

Jeff: Yeah, Todd, that's a good point, but I think it's inevitable that they're going to go anyway, so you can take them and take them on a very low impact tour, where it doesn't disturb the country so much or you can let them go with a big organization that sort of takes them through a country so it's like a zoo, where there's no interaction and they're sort of looking, looking through a window so I think if I take them it will be less destructive to the culture.

杰夫:托德,你这个观点很好,不过我认为旅游是不可避免的,可以带游客来一次影响小的行程,不会对目的地国家造成太多影响,可以带游客去那种大型景点,比如可以去动物园,那里没有互动,他们只是通过窗户观看动物,所以我认为如果我带团不会对目的地国家的文化造成太大破坏。

Todd: OK, well, so there are a lot of tour companies out there, so if you had a tour company what would you do differently? Like how would your tour company be different than the others?

托德:好,现在有很多旅游公司,你要是开家旅游公司的话,你会做不一样的事情吗?你的旅游公司和其他公司有什么不同?

Jeff: I think I would try to use a lot of local people in the service so instead of bringing people over with you and having them do everything, I'd sort of bring a lot amount of employees over and let the locals do everything. Let the locals guide, let the locals drive, try to include the locals as much as possible and it would be a better experience for the tourist as well.

杰夫:我想我可能会聘请更多的当地人来提供服务,而不是在旅行中带一些员工过去,让他们做所有的事情,我会带一些员工,但是让当地人来做事情。比如,请当地人当导游,请当地的司机开车,我会尽量让更多的当地人参与进来,这对游客来说也是一种更好的体验。

Todd: So, I think you mentioned that you'd like to have your company for India. What is it about India? Why would you want to have a tour company there?

托德:你刚提到你会带游客去印度?印度什么样?你为什么想带团去印度?

Jeff: Many people don't like India because it's dirty, noisy. It's smelly, hot. But it's special place and I think you sort of lose a bit of your the social greed or possessional habits that you have, that you don't even notice you have them, that you acquire them when you living in the West and when you go to India they're stripped away. So I think it's just a special place and it's cheap and it's exotic and it's interesting and Indian people are beautiful people, really fun to be around.

杰夫:许多人不喜欢印度,因为他们认为印度又脏、又吵、有难闻的味道,而且很热,不过印度是一个特别的地方,我认为印度可以让你摆脱掉你在社会生活中染上的贪念和其他恶习,你可能没有意识到你有这些恶习,不过这些都是在西方社会的生活中染上的,去到印度以后,你会摆脱掉这些恶习。所以印度是一个特别的地方,而且那里物价便宜,具有异国情调,又很有意思,印度人很漂亮,去那里游玩会很开心。

重点讲解:

1. stand out 引人注目;显眼;

例句:In this list two names stand out particularly.

这个名单上有两个名字很显眼。

2. blend in 融入;与…融为一体;与…协调;

例句:I've always loved company and I never had a problem to blend in any kind of groups.

我总是喜欢有同伴,从未有融入任何团体的问题。

3. instead of 代替…;而不是…;

例句:I suggest you paint on wood instead of paper.

我建议你在木头上画而不是在纸上画。

4. strip away 剥去;剥下;揭去;

例句:In previous articles I've written about a couple of ways to strip away the unimportant clutter from our lives.
