“In the desert, oases are few and far between.” 「砂漠ではオアシスが少ない。」

“You’ll probably have to take your trash home with you. Trash cans here are few and far between.” 「ゴミは持って帰ることになるでしょう。ここにゴミ箱は少ないです。」


When there are not many of something, there are few. If they are not all clustered together, there is a long distance between them. This makes them hard to find.
