A life in Portugal


Akihiro comes home from work.
明弘: ただいま!

Akihiro: Hello!
順子: お帰りなさい。今日はどうだった?

Junko: Hello darling. How was your day?
明弘: クタクタだよ。

Akihiro: Exhausted.
順子: ところで、絵美のこと覚えてる?

Junko: By the way, do you still remember Emi?
明弘: 絵美ちゃん? うん、覚えてるよ。ずいぶん長いこと会ってないなぁ。

Akihiro: Emi? Oh, yes. I haven't seen her for ages.
順子: ネットで彼女のこと見つけたのよ。

Junko: I found her through the Internet.
明弘: 本当? 今、どうしてるの?

Akihiro: Really? How is she?
順子: 今、ポルトガルに住んでるそうよ。

Junko: She lives now in Portugal.
明弘: ポルトガル? いいね!

Akihiro: Portugal? Nice!
順子: うん、自給自足の生活をしてるそうよ。水も電気も自給なんだって。

Junko: Yes. She lives self-sufficiently there. Own water and electricity.
明弘: 僕もそんなふうに生活してみたいな!

Akihiro: I'd love to live like that!
順子: でも、リスクもあるわよ。絵美、火事で死にかけたって言ってたわ。

Junko: Well, it has its risks. She said that she almost got killed in a fire.
明弘: 本当に? 何があったの?

Akihiro: Really? What happened?
順子: 灯油ランプで事故になったらしいわ。

Junko: Apparently an accident with a kerosene lamp!
明弘: えぇっ、大変だったね!

Akihiro: Goodness me!
順子: ええ、私もびっくりしたわ。

Junko: Yes, I was shocked too.
明弘: 絵美ちゃんに会いにポルトガルに行きたいね。

Akihiro: We should visit her in Portugal.
順子: いいアイデアね!

Junko: Good idea!
