小企鹅每年游8000公里看恩人

【编者按】今天译世界和大家分享一个小企鹅报恩的暖心小故事。整整5年,被搭救的小企鹅坚持每年游8000公里看望恩人!仿佛是童话故事变成了现实,让人心中荡起暖意。
The story of a penguin that swims thousands of miles every year to visit his rescuer is melting hearts all over the Internet.
一只小企鹅每年游数千英里看望救命恩人的故事融化了所有网民的心。
Retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, from an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, discovered the tiny penguin languishing on rocks in 2011.
现年71岁的若昂·佩雷拉·德索萨(Joao Pereira de Souza)是一名退休的泥瓦匠,有时也从事渔夫的工作,他住在巴西里约热内卢附近的一个小岛上的村庄里。2011年,他在一块岩石上发现了一只奄奄一息的小企鹅。
The helpless creature was starving and covered in oil but Mr de Souza took him in and nursed him back to health, naming the South American Magellanic penguin Dindim.
这只饿坏了的无助的小家伙全身覆满石油,德索萨收留了它,并帮它恢复健康,还给这只南美洲麦哲伦企鹅取名为Dindim。

It took him a week just to clean the sticky black residue from the bird's feathers. Mr Pereira de Souza said he fed Dindim a daily diet of fish to improve his strength.
光是清理Dindim羽毛上的黏着的黑色油渍,就用了一个星期。德索萨给Dindim喂鱼吃,以此来增强它的体质。
When Dindim was well again Mr de Souza released him back into the sea, never expecting to see his new friend again.
当Dindim恢复健康时,德索萨将它放归大海,从未想过会再次见到它。
To his surprise the penguin returned to visit him just a few months later. Dindim, as Pereira de Souza named him, now spends eight months of the year with him before returning to mate off the coast of Argentina and Chile.
令他意想不到的是,仅隔了几个月,小企鹅就回来看他了。此后,Dindim每年回到阿根廷和智利的海岸交配之前,都要和德索萨呆上八个月。
Dindim is believed to swim around 5,000 miles everytime he returns to Mr de Souza.
为了来看德索萨,Dindim每次要游约5000英里(8000公里)。
'I love the penguin like it's my own child and I believe the penguin loves me.' Mr de Souza de said.
德索萨说:"我就像爱自己的孩子那样爱着这只小企鹅,我相信它也爱我。"
'No one else is allowed to touch him. He pecks them if they do. He lays on my lap, lets me give him showers, allows me to feed him sardines and to pick him up.'
"除了我以外,没有人可以碰它,它会啄碰它的人。不过,它会躺在我的腿上,让我给它洗澡,让我喂它沙丁鱼,让我抱着它。"
