Mike: So Ana, Portugal is not a very big country, is it?
迈克:安娜,葡萄牙并不是一个很大的国家,对吧?
Ana: No, it's not. We're actually quite small compared to most countries in the world.
安娜:对,不是。实际上,与世界上大部分国家相比,葡萄牙非常小。
Mike: But you are next to some pretty big countries in Europe, right? You're next to Spain, and France, and Germany, which are all bigger countries.
迈克:但是你们的邻国都是欧洲的大国,对吧?你们的邻国有西班牙、法国、德国,这几个都是大国。
Ana: Yeah. Yeah, we are. Right by Spain. Spain is so much bigger than Portugal. And it kind of covers some of the Portuguese borders, so it's very interesting.
安娜:对,没错。我们和西班牙相邻。西班牙比葡萄牙要大很多。而且西班牙覆盖了一些葡萄牙的边界,这非常有趣。
Mike: Okay, yeah. I've even heard Portugal being referred to as a province of Spain. What do you think about that?
迈克:好。我还听说葡萄牙曾被当作西班牙的一个省。你怎么看?
Ana: Yeah. And they think it might be in South America or part of Spain, but not really. Actually, Portugal and Spain, they have a lot of things in common but also a lot of differences.
安娜:对。他们认为葡萄牙可能在南美洲或是隶属于西班牙,但是其实并不是。葡萄牙和西班牙有很多共同之处,也有很多差异。
Mike: All right.
迈克:好。
Ana: So the people are similar but our food is actually very different.
安娜:居民的特点很相似,但是我们葡萄牙的食物非常不同。
Mike: How so? What are the differences between Portuguese food and Spanish food?
迈克:怎么不同?葡萄牙美食和西班牙美食有什么不同之处?
Ana: Well, I think Portuguese food, we have a lot of grilled fish, and we're right by the ocean so for us, fish is really important.
安娜:嗯,葡萄牙食物有烤鱼,因为我们濒临大海,所以鱼对葡萄牙人来说是非常重要的食物。
Mike: Ah, I see.
迈克:嗯,我明白了。
Ana: Whereas in Spain, I think you get a lot of meat and food that's a little bit less healthy, I think. But maybe that's just my opinion.
安娜:我认为西班牙食物中有很多肉类,他们的食物没有我们的健康。不过这可能只是我个人的看法。
Mike: All right. So is Portuguese food very healthy?
迈克:好的。那葡萄牙食物非常健康吗?
Ana: It can be but not always. Our desserts are really rich, so you should be careful. There is a lot of egg and flour and sugar in there. So you don't want to eat too much of that.
安娜:可以很健康,但并不是一直都是健康的。我们的甜点非常油腻,所以你应该注意一下。甜点里有大量的鸡蛋和面粉。所以你可能并不想吃太多。
Mike: And you like very rich, cured meat, and sausages as well as they do in Spain?
迈克:你们也有西班牙那种油腻的腌肉和香肠吗?
Ana: Yes, we do. Smoked ham, and cheese is also very important.
安娜:对,我们也有。烟熏火腿和奶酪对我们来说也很重要。
Mike: Oh, that sounds good.
迈克:哦,听起来不错。
Ana: But you know there are also a lot of similarities between Portugal and Spain.
安娜:但是你知道,葡萄牙和西班牙之间也有很多相似点。

Mike: Really? Wow. Are you big fan of football?
