I'm going to talk a little bit about an embarrassing situation.  我要说一件有些尴尬的事情。
In Japan, I've lost my wallet four times.  在日本的时候,我的钱包丢了四次。
The first time I lost my wallet I was in a taxi cab going home late at night  我第一次弄丢钱包是在出租车上,当时时间非常晚了我坐出租车回家,
and my wallet slipped out of my pocket and I didn't notice.  我的钱包从口袋里滑了出去,我并没有注意到。
The second time I lost my wallet I went to a night club with my friends  第二次丢钱包是在我和朋友去夜店的时候,
and I drank too much and I wasn't paying attention and I left my wallet on the counter of the bar.  我喝了太多酒,没有意识到我把钱包落在了吧台上。
The third time I lost my wallet I was hiking in a mountain region in Japan  我第三次丢钱包是在日本山区徒步旅行的时候,
and I went into a small convenience store on the way home and I bought an ice-cream  我在回家的路上走进一家小便利店买了冰激凌,
and I left my wallet on the counter and forgot about it.  我把钱包落在柜台并完全忘了这件事。
The fourth time I lost my wallet I was in Ueno station,  第四次是在上野车站,
a really, really busy station in Tokyo  那是东京一个非常非常繁忙的车站,
and I left my wallet on the counter at a supermarket,  我把钱包落在了超市的柜台,
and the most amzing thing is that I still have the same wallet.  最神奇的事情是现在我仍然在用这个钱包。
In each of these instances I got my wallet back.  每次这些情况发生后,我都把钱包找了回来。
In two of the cases the person at the store called me and I just had to go back to the store and get it.  其中有两次是店员叫住了我,我回到商店找回了钱包。
In one instance, the person that ran the convenient store in the mountains mailed me my wallet,  还有一次是经营山区便利店的人把我的钱包寄还给我,
and another time I had to go to the police station and pick it up,  另一次是我去警察局找回了钱包,
but I think that says a lot about Japanese people.  不过我认为这很能说明日本人的特质。
They're very, very honest  他们非常非常诚实,
and sometimes I think maybe Japan is the only country in the world where you could lose your wallet four times and still get it back. 有时我认为日本可能是世界上唯一一个即使你的钱包丢了四次也总能找回来的国家。
