    Default several hundred rounds

    Hola! pueden ayudarme con esta traducción? Puede traducirse sólo como "varios centenares" o "round" implica algo más? Gracias!
    A slope is a football field because racing youngsters are using it for that purpose, and marks one of the 'rehabilitation' villages established to control landless people and soil erosion caused by random grazing: several hundred rounds of mud and thatch instead of hilltop crowns of two or three, the new tin flash of a windmill, kilómetros of wire fencing.

    Default Re: several hundred rounds

    Hola Katrina

    Me comentan acá que "several hundred rounds" se usa generalmente en el contexto de "rounds of ammunition". A mí me da la impresión de que la persona que escribe está tratando de describir con un lenguaje evocativo la situación sórdida de un lugar deprimente, haciendo alusión a "varias rondas (de metralla) de barro y paja". La verdad es que no estoy seguro de ésto, es sólo una sensación. Espero que ayude.

    Saludos.
    P.

    I would say that it has to do with the random grazing. For me it is more like: "varios centenares de círculos de barro y paja en lugar de dos o tres picos en la cima de la colina".
