【看英文中國郵報學英文】一名委內瑞拉男子在一場交通事故中失去左腿,並靠著僅剩的右腿徒步走到南美洲最南端。他說,希望能以行動鼓舞自己的女兒以及更多像他這樣的人勇敢追夢,儘管遭遇挫折。

A Venezuelan man who lost his left leg in a traffic accident has walked to the bottom tip of South America, hoping to inspire his daughter and his compatriots to pursue their dreams despite difficult times.

這名男子去年離開家鄉委內瑞拉,背起背包,口袋裡裝著三十塊美金,開啟了這趟旅程。靠著他左腿上的鋁製義肢,他得以行走在崎嶇的石頭路上。

Yeslie Aranda left his Venezuelan hometown of San Cristobal in the southwestern state of Táchira last year with a backpack, $30 in his pocket and an aluminum prosthesis that enabled him to negotiate the continent’s rugged roads.

星期六,這名現年五十七歲的男子在嚴冷的天氣下途經風景如畫的城市烏蘇懷亞,這座城市是全世界最南端的城市,被雪白的山所環繞。

On Saturday, the 57-year-old braved freezing temperatures and marched into the picturesque town of Ushuaia, which is surrounded by snowcapped mountains and known as the world’s southernmost city.

當Aranda迎面走向城市裡的歡迎標語 「世界的盡頭」時,他忍不住感動的說:「我正在實現我的夢想。我想告訴世人,去追尋自己的夢想,並征服它。」

I am living my dream,” Aranda said, as he headed toward a sign that welcomes visitors to ‘the end of the world.’ “My message to people is to pursue their own dreams, and conquer them as well.”

當他的同事們絕望地離開這個因近期政治危機幾經波折的國家時,曾當過公車司機的Aranda踏上了他的旅程。然而,曾遭遇車禍撿回一條命重新再站起的Aranda表示,他的旅行最大目的是希望能夠鼓舞其他人。

Aranda, a former bus driver, is making his journey as thousands of his compatriots leave their crisis-wracked country out of desperation. But Aranda said his own trip has a different raison d’être: To be a source of inspiration for others after an accident in which he almost lost his life.
