a0018711_132116.jpgHello, everyone. How are you? I'm quite fine because I slept for 11 hours last night. Actually, I slept only 2 hours the day before and the bed in YHA was confortable. For that reasons, I could slept very well.

Last night, I had poor dinner. It was Cup Noddle which made in Japan. That's all. Afterwards, I read a book and went to bed. My room has 3 people without me but we said just "Hi" or "Hello".

This morning, I went to Nancy's house but she wasn't there. Well, she was Sindia's host mother and had me stay when I come to Chch by bicycle from Timaru. This morning, I just wanted to say "Hello" to her. Then, I left a memo on the door.

After that, I went shopping and got something and afterwards, I came here, the school. Just now, Yayoi came here to see me but she looked a little bit angry. Probably, I made her angry but I didn't know exactly. Anyway, she left here soon. I'm sorry.

By the way, last night, I went to the internet cafe and wrote a journal but I couldn't transmit it. I haven't known why. After that, I tried it also in the YHA but I couldn't. I guess some computer can't use to do it. I hope I can do it in Marlborough. If I couldn't do it, my this journal would be finished. Anyway, I'll try as I can.

It's 2:20pm now. It's nearly the break time. Then, I"m going to see Akiko and Ayako. Then, see you later. I wish it would be tomorrow.

a0018711_184049.jpgHello, in fact, it's 31th now and I'm in the school which I used to go before in Christchurch. I wrote a journal yesterday at the internet cafe but it doesn't work. Anyway, it was written last night.

Hi, everyone. How's it going? I'm quite fine. This morning, I left Timaru and now, I'm in the internet cafe in Christchurch.

Last night, I packed my things up but it was hard work because I have lots ot stuffs. Then, my boss said,"You can leave some your stuffs here if you can come back here" They are so kind, aren't they? I left some my stuffs. However, who made it hard work was actually my boss. She gave me many food and some seasoning. She said,"Don't have easy food. Cook and eat delicious meals"

She also gave me many books. Many of them were Japanese novels. She said,"You'll must be bored in Marlborough. Then, you'll need these. Reading in nature should be great" We thought our liking of book might be quite close. I took the books she recomended. That's why my trunk became too heavy. When I got on the bus, it surprised the bus driver.

When I arrived at the Cathedral square, I ate rice-balls which also my boss gave me. Afterwards, I called Yayoi and she guided me to YHA. She looked a little bit busy. She caught the bus before long. Anyway, thanks, Yayoi. I was going to go shopping but I happened to meet Naoko in front of Cathedral. We hadn't met and talked for a long time. Then, she was going to the cinema. I was interested in it, so I went there with her.

The film was "The day after tomorrow". Have you watched it yet? It was nice movie. The big reason was easy to understand even though in English. The action told us the story. Naoko speaks English really well, so I sometimes heard she was laughing though I couldn't usually understand why it was funny. Anyway, I enjoyed it.

Afterwards, we went to Star Backs. Then, we talked about mainly books. I thought it was the most longest talking for us for then. Actually, we hadn't talked together like then but we talked quite naturally. I had a very nice time. After that, she caught the bus and I came to the internet cafe, and I'm typing this now.

From now, I'm going back to YHA, maybe. Tomorrow, I'm looking for some books and probably meet some friends. Then, see you tomorrow.Hi, everyone. How's it going? I'm quite fine. This morning, I left Timaru and now, I'm in the internet cafe in Christchurch.

a0018711_222745.jpgHi, everyone. How's it going? I'm as well as yesterday. It was the last day in Timaru to me today. I did a final work but it was nothing special. It was the same as always.

This evening I visited a neibour. A Kiwi man, a Japanese lady, and their child live there. I told Scott who's the Kiwi, I'm going to Marlmorough Sounds. Then, he told me that he'd ever visited there and he'd really liked it. He also said,"There is very beautiful. You'll like it" That's a good news.

Tomorrow morning, I'm leaving Timaru but acutually, I haven't finished packing my things up yet. I guess I don't have enough time to sleep. I've slept for 9 hours everyday recently. However, it'll be almost the departure time in 9 hours from now.

By the way, I've been in Timaru for 102 days. A lot of things have happened to me there. I used to cook for dinner. I used to go to school but only for 4 days. I shaved my hair by myself. I joined the wedding ceremony and the party. I was going to Tonga to work but I couldn't. I went to Chch by bicycle in a day. Suddenly, my friends came to my house from Chch. I was a paper boy but only for 3 days. I went to Dunedin by bicycle in 3 days. I met lots of people and talked about many things. I've really had a good time in Timaru. I'm thankful to everybody especially my bosses.

Well, I have to go now. Then, see you maybe tomorrow. I'll keep a journal as possible. I'm going to an internet cafe tomorrow, maybe.

a0018711_223410.jpgHello, everyone. How's it going? I'm as well as ever. It was rainy in Timaru.

Today, I went to the bank to put money. About two months ago, I opened the bank account but actually, I hadn't at all put money in the bank since then. Maybe I'll be not using money after move to Marlborough. You know, my new home isn't in a town. There isn't even a village, I guess. I heard there has no shops. Maybe it's called a hamlet.

Anyway, that's why I put money in the bank all most of my money. I left money in my wallet only an amount for the journey to Marlborough.

Afterwards, I went walking on the beach though it was rainy. There were no people on the beach, of course. I was walking while I saw some birds. Suddenly, the dark cloud moved and the sun came into sight. the sun changed the beach to be beautiful.

By the way, thanks Satomi for telling about here to Korean Tina. Today, 7people came here. Yesterday was 8 people and the day before yesterday was 9people... I guess tomorrow will be 6people. Anyway, thank all you for always coming. Then, see you tomorrow.

a0018711_232815.jpgHi, everyone. How are you? I'm good. It was a quite fine day today though quite cold in the morning and the night.

Today, I went to an auction with my boss and her friends. I didn't buy or sell anything but I'm always curious so I went there. Although it was Thursday, there were many people there. Many of them were old people. There were many interesting stuffs but most of them were useless to me. That's why I left there before long.

Today, I cleaned around our house and I packed my things up for moving a house. Ah, I'm leaving lovely Timaru.

By the way, happy birthday dear Sandy.
Then, see you tomorrow.

a0018711_223951.jpgHello, everyone. How are you doing? I'm pretty good. Actually, I got up at 3pm today. It surprised my boss.

This afternoon(it's morning for me), my friend, Ryota came to my house to return my book. It's written by Makoto Nagasawa who is Japanese artist. Ryota and I like his picture so we used to talk about his art and how to draw. He goes to politec in Timaru to learn art.

Today, he has a schedule and I had to book the bus. Then, we said"Good bye" and I went to the information centre to book the bus to Christchurch and also to Picton. After that, on the way to go home, I happened to meet Ryota, again. He was drawing a picture in the town. We talked again while he kept drawing. He draws really well. He often sells his pictures. Whenever I see someome's picture, I feel to wanna draw a picture. How about you?

By the way, I'm going to Christchurch on 30th May. And I'm catching the bus to go to Picton in the early morning on 1st June. Then, see you later.

a0018711_11042.jpgHello, everybody. How's it going? I'm back in normal life. I'm fine but a little bit tired. It's not for the trip. It is actually for this journal. I wrote a long journal about my trip. It's good for my English writing skills. I feel it is getting really well though my listening is getting worse.

Today, I worked in our garden with my boss. When we are cutting the apple tree, it would lie down and would break the next house. The tree was too heavy so it was really dangerous. I was holding on and my boss ran to get neighbours' help. Before long, she came back there with a Hongkonese boy and a Japanese girl. Afterwards, it went well for them.

Although I'm back in normal life, it is also not bad.

a0018711_146.jpgIt's Monday so Mr.Eiichi went to work in the early morning. I went to the city centre and booked the bus to go back to Timaru. Yes, I chose a bus. If I had enough time, I would keep going the bicycle trip. However, in fact, I don't have much time. I have to go back home soon for helping my boss and I have to prepare for moving to Marlborough.

It was rainy. I waited for the bus in front of the rail station. I got on the bus at 2:30pm. In the bus, I was looking at the outside. Then, I was remembering about my hard funny interesting mysterious wonderful trip. I'm really thankful to my boss.

Actually, my boss(Madam) used to go a bicycle trip. She used to go around Japan, Alaska, and somewhere. She lent me the many stuff. I was really happy but also she was really happy. When I got home, I talked to her about my trip. Then, she said with her smiling,"I'm glad to find somebody who can understand how much it is fun and wonderful the bicycle trip!" Our talking was neverend.

a0018711_1116.jpgIt was cloudy. I got up at 10am. I went to the city centre by bicycle.

I went to University of Otago and went into the library. It was very big. I liked it. There were many students there though it was Sunday. When I was seeing around the University, I saw that a concert would happen. I'm curious so I went into the holl.

It was Community Orchestra. Many kind of people were there. Many children or many quite old people. They were called,"Training Orchestra", "Symphonic Band", "Junior Symphonia". Some of them actually played not so well but all of them looked very happy. They were really enjoying playing. Then, I read a book. Perhaps, somebody thought that I was bored but I used their music for BGM. That was really good BGM for my reading. I had a very nice time.

When it was getting dark, I went up hills by bicycle and saw down the wonderful night view of Dunedin city. It was the last night for my trip.

a0018711_224257.jpgIt was cloudy. I got up at 10am and Mr.Eiichi, too. We had a drive around the city. Although he lives in Dunedin, he doesn't really know about the city because he has worked hard since he came to Dunedin. He tells me at weekends, he usually stays at home all day.

That's why the driving was good for also him. We visited some places but I don't remember the names. Anyway, I enjoyed. Ah, we went to see the sea. It was nice but it was quite cold and windy.

When we were having a drive, we talked many things. His talking is quite interesting. Actually, he has ever worked in Tonga. Yes, he would introduce his boss in Tonga to me. However, unfortunately, a new worker had been already there. But for that reason, I can go to Marlborough Sounds to work. I always enjoy my mysterious fortune.

In the evening, he cooked for dinner, again. It was also delicious. I'm really thankful to him. Afterwards, we watched films on TV. Those were"Stewart Little" and "Vertical Limit". Both of them were nice movies though I could understand just a little. Recently, I hadn't heared English talking even on TV so my Engllish listening skills are getting worse. However, my new bosses are Kiwi couple. I will talk to them everyday for my English study.

By the way, my brother became 20 years old today. Congratulations.
