A Quiet Life

宁静的生活

When Mr. Finch retired, he bought a small house in a village near the sea. The house was built in 1588, but was in very good condition Mr. Finch hoped to have a quiet life, but in the summer holidays he got a shock. Hundreds of tourists came to the village.

当芬奇先生退休的时候,他在靠海的村子里买了一幢小屋。这幢屋子建于1588年,但状况良好。芬奇先生希望过一种安静的生活,但是在夏季假期期间,他却大为吃惊。数以百计的观光客来到村子里。

Mr. Finch’s house was the most interesting building in the village and many of the tourists came to see it. From morning till night there were tourists outside the house. They kept looking into the rooms through the windows and many of them even went into Mr. Finch’s garden. This was too much for Mr. Finch. He decided to drive the visitors away. So he put a notice in the window. The notice said: “If you want to satisfy your curiosity, come in and look round. Price: two shillings and six pence." Mr. Finch was sure that the visitors would stop coming but he was wrong. More and more visitors came and Mr. Finch spent every day showing them round his house. “I came here to retire, not to work as a guide.” He said angrily in the end. He sold the house and bought a small, modern one. It’s an uninteresting little place and no it, but he could live a quiet life.

芬奇先生的屋子是全村最有趣的建筑,许多游客来他这里观看。从早到晚,都有游客在房屋外边观看。他们还不断隔着窗户朝屋里看,许多人甚至走进芬奇先生的花园。这对芬奇先生有些过分了。他决定把游客撵走,所以就在窗户上贴了个告示,写着“如果你想满足好奇心,就进来看看吧。价格:两先令六便士。”芬奇先生满以为游客不会再来了, 但是他错了。越来越多的游客来了,芬奇先生每天都忙着带领游客参观房子。“我到这里是隐居的,不是当导游的。”最后他愤愤不平地说。他卖掉了这所房子,买了一个现代化的小房子。这是一个没人感兴趣的小地方,没有人想来看,他可以过上宁静的生活了。
