drift away 漂う;
An 18-year-old man in Indonesia was working as a fisherman. He was living alone out at sea on a “rompong,” a very small boathouse. In the middle of July, the rope to the anchor broke, and his rompong drifted away. He ran out of food and water after one week. How did he survive? He caught fish and ate them, and he drank rainwater. A ship finally picked him up near Guam, almost 2000 kilometers from his home, on August 31. He was taken to Japan, and he flew back home to Indonesia. He was happy to be home, but he said that he would never live and work on a rombong again! (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
