了不起的盖茨比(凯瑟琳在蒙特卡罗的经历)

at 3年前  ca 了不起的盖茨比英文原文  pv 797  by 名著  

“When they do get married,” continued Catherine, “they’re going West to live for a while until it blows over.”【等风波过去】

  “It’d be more discreet to go to Europe.”

  “Oh, do you like Europe?” she exclaimed surprisingly. “I just got back from Monte Carlo.”【世界著名的赌城,蒙特卡罗这座大赌场的起源,是1856年的摩纳哥亲王Charles三世为了解决财政危机,才在市区北边开设了第一家赌场,后人为了纪念这位行事极端毁誉参半的亲王,故将该地区命名为蒙特卡罗。

  “Really?”

  “Just last year. I went over there with another girl.” “Stay long?”

  “No, we just went to Monte Carlo and back. We went by way of Marseilles. We had over twelve hundred dollars when we started, but we got gypped out of it all in two days in the private rooms. We had an awful time getting back, I can tell you. God, how I hated that town!” gypcheat or swindle (someone).

    【 "没有,我们只去了蒙特卡罗就回来了。我们是取道马赛去的。我们动身的时候带了一千二百多美元,可是两天之内就在赌场小房间里让人骗光了。我们在回来路上吃的苦头可不少,我对你说吧。天哪,我恨死那城市了。"】
