Eternal Flame

I just heard this song by chance when I was staying in USA. I have ever heard this song, but I realized again it's great. The simple lyric is easy to understand. I love it.

Water-color paintings

サンディエゴにいる間、何枚かの水彩画を描きました。最初のうち、描き方が分からず試行錯誤しましたが、だんだんそのコツをつかんできた気がします(まだまだですが)。最後の絵は、ホストファミリーの家の庭です。フォストファザーがデザインしたという庭はとても美しくて、ボクも気に入っていました。彼らに頼まれて描いたのですが、それを最後にプレゼントできて良かったです。

The things helped me

アメリカで役にたったものを紹介したいと思います。

・靴
d0038566_18231051.jpg3ヶ月間、この1足でいろんな所に歩いて行きました。

・電子辞書
ボクの生命線でした。でも、多くのヨーロッパ人はブックタイプの辞書を持ち歩いていました。えらいなぁ。ただし、ドイツ語やフランス語は英語と似た単語もあるので、意味を推測できる単語も多いのではないかと思います。

・カメラ
実はカメラを2台持って行きました。一つはRICOH GR DIGITAL、そしてもう一つはNIKONのS520。GRは主に風景の撮影に使い、S520はスナップショットに使いました。2台とも良いカメラです。メキシコを訪れた際、まるで2丁拳銃のようにカメラを使い分けるボクを見て、友達は感心していました^^。

・Facebook
このサイトで、多くの人と友達になれました。Facebookはmixiに似ていますが、まだ日本では馴染みは薄いですね。

・日本食
d0038566_18424962.jpgホームシックになった時は、これが一番でした。
※写真は日本料理屋で食べた親子丼。

・パソコン、インターネット
運良く、すべてのホームステイ先で、無線LANを使用することが出来ました。

・水彩絵の具セット
d0038566_18232987.jpg良い気分転換になりました。描いた絵は後ほど紹介したいと思います。

Only a week

I only have only a week until I leave here. I feel 3 Three months is feels shorter than I thought.
Do I speak English fluently now? Of course, I want to say, "Yes,". But but it was impossible.
I'm not even sure whether my English improved as well. Sometimes, I got suspicious whether doubt my choice which I came here with to come here, spending so much money, was correct. But but for now, I'm thinking positive.

I met a lot of people after I came here. Such as students : students, teachers, host families. It was interesting that That each student had various reasons which they came to for coming here was interesting. Almost all Japanese students said, "I was tired of Japanese life."

Some of Among them, there are was a person who changes the school is changing schools, a person who travels is traveling all over the world after he finished the school, and a person who tries is trying to find a job in USA. And, everyone is advancing toward their goal. I'm just happy I could just meet such people.

I can't give in, too though. I'm thinking of what I should do after going back to Japan. If I'm going to...I can't still say talk about it.
For now, I will just study English not to and not regret anything for several days.

Tijuana

Last Saturday, with my friends, I went to Tijuana in Mexico which is located near the border. It took about 1 hour from San Diego DownTown to Tijuana by train.

You can easily cross the border to Tijuana without checking. But be careful. When we go back to USA, we need the passport and visa. One of us forgot one of the necessary documents. She couldn't come with us but, fortunately, she noticed it before we crossed the border.

Tijuana is very exciting city. Everything is colorful. Food is very delicious and reasonable price. People is very cheerful, and when they notice we are Japanese, they talk to us in strange Japanese. Maybe they believe that all Japanese have a lot of money.

But I can't recommend you go to there alone and at night.
