Chapter 12 A voyage to the country of the Houyhnhnme
第12章 到慧骃国的航行

It was not long before I started my next voyage,on 7th September,1710,as captain of my own ship this time.
没过多久我又开始了我的下一次航行,时间1710年9月7日,这次是作为自己轮船的船长。

The owner of the ship wanted me to sail to the Indiano Ocean to do some business for him there,but I was very unlucky.On the way,I had to employ some new sailors from Barbados,but they were men of very bad character.I heard them whispering to the other sailors several times,but I did not suspect what they were planning.
轮船的所有者希望我航行到印度洋在那儿给他做点事,可是我非常不走运。路上,我不得不在巴尔巴道斯雇一些新水手,可是他们都是品行很差的人。我听见他们跟别的水手私语了好几次,但是我没有怀疑到他们在策划阴谋。

One morning,as we were sailing round the Cape of Good Hope,they attacked me and tied me up.They told me they were going to take control of the ship and become pirates.There was nothing I could do.They left me,alone,on the beach of a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
一天早上,当我们正绕过好望角时,他们袭击了我,把我绑了起来。他们告诉我他们将控制轮船去当海盗。我毫无办法。他们把我孤独地留在印度洋中的一个小岛的沙滩上。

As the ship sailed away,I realized I had no idea where I was.I found a road away from the beach,and walked very quietly and carefully along,in case I was attacked.Several strange-looking animals were lying in a field,and some were sitting in a tree.
当轮船驶开了,我才想起我不知身在何处。我找到了一条离开沙滩的路,静静地小心地走着,以防受到袭击。几个怪模怪样的动物躺在一块地里,有些坐在树上。

Their heads and chests were covered in hair,and they had beards as well.They walked sometimes on two,and sometimes on four legs,and could climb trees.They were certainly the ugliest animals I had ever seen in all my travels.
他们的头和胸长着毛发,也有胡须。他们有时用两肢着地行走,有时用四肢,他们绝对是我在所有旅行中见到的最丑陋的动物。
