本集内容

Rubbish threat to Machu Picchu 秘鲁马丘比丘遗址垃圾泛滥

David Bowie's collection on show 大卫·鲍伊私人艺术收藏首次展出

文字稿

The iconic ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru have come under the spotlight for the country's inability to deal with the mounds of trash tourists are leaving behind. So much so that Unesco has given Peru a deadline to deal with the problem or risk the site going into the World Heritage danger list.

近期,秘鲁标志性景点马丘比丘遗址因其政府无力处理游客扔下的一堆堆垃圾而备受关注。事态严重到联合国教科文组织给秘鲁规定了处理该问题的最后期限,否则马丘比丘将有可能被列为濒危世界遗产。

And to David Bowie's private art collection, which is going on public display for the first time before being auctioned later this year. The 300 works include those by Henry Moore and Damien Hirst - with the collection valued at more than 18 million dollars.

大卫·鲍伊的私人艺术收藏将首次公开展出,此后会在年内被拍卖。他的三百件艺术品中部分出于亨利·摩尔和达米恩·赫斯特之手,藏品总估值一千八百余万美元。

词汇
