The captain came ashore     and joined our conversation.   "Before they started the High Dam     25 years ago, "he said,the Nile mud had a lot of food in it,       and so the sardines gathered     near the mouth of the  river    to feed."
船长上岸了,凑过来 和我们说话。他说:"二十五年前,在修建高坝之前,尼罗河的泥沙里面有很多可吃的东西,所以沙丁鱼就聚集在河口找食吃。"

Now,there is no mud泥 ,and no food for the fish --they've left us ."If all this can happen in 25 years ,what will happen ,after 50 years ,or 100 or 200?"asked Muhammad.

现在泥沙没有了,鱼没有可吃的了,
也就不来了。"如果说25年前就发生这么多变化50年、100年、200年之后又会发生什么呢?"穆罕默德问道。
