I danced in the Teya Teya festival with the City Office team. It was great! I was dressed as はまポン, the official PR character for Yawatahama, It was a very hot night, but everyone was in a great mood and I had lots of fun~! Many thanks to Wakki (Wakisaka-sensei) for inviting me up on stage to play taiko with the Miyabi-gumi (it was a great memory!), and also everyone at the City Office for such a wonderful night!

この間、八幡浜市役所チームでテヤテヤに出ました!ほろ酔い気分ではまポンの格好で踊った~(*^^) 蒸し暑かったけど、みんな機嫌がよくてすごく楽しかった!


Also, I saw the fireworks with my homestay family last week. It was wonderful, and I had a great time. My homestay family is really kind and lovely, and I'm always grateful to them for inviting me :)

ホームステー先のみんなと一緒に花火も見ました!久しぶに会えて何よりも楽しかった~ みんないつも優しくていろいろ誘ってくれてありがとう m(._.)m


I also went to Mt Fuji!
The weather was bad, just like last year. We were able to climb to 200m from the summit (top of the mountain), but we had to go down because of bad weather... :(
Anyway, there were no injuries and everyone was safe, so I will try again next year!

去年と同じように雨と風がひどかった。山頂から200mまでみんなで登れたけど、悪天候のため下山することになったのだ…残念 _| ̄|○

下山してから晴れてきた( ̄へ ̄)

I ♥ Samoa (by melissa)

 During spring break I went to Samoa.

Samoa is a small island in the Pacific Ocean.
 (Can you find Samoa on this map?

 It is very beautiful and green in Samoa.
The weather is hot and humid.
(Humid means 湿度が高い.)
It's more humid in Samoa than in Japan!

This is a house surrounded by coconut trees. ------------------->

Samoa has many green mountains and many beautiful views of the sea.

                                                        There are also a lot of nice, sandy beaches.

This is my friend, Jesse.
He lives in Samoa.
We went to high school together.
There are so many delicious, tropical fruits. 
                  This is a banana tree.  ----------->
<---This is a papaya tree.



           We went snorkeling everyday.

                                          It was great! ♥

This is my favorite fish.

It's a baby emperor angelfish.

These are wild pigs!
