Hello,this is Emi. I’m staying in Australia for 3 months.
Between 24th September and 7th October,I have 2 weeks holiday.
A week passed,so I will introduce what I did !!
First,last Tuesday,I went to “Queen Victoria Market “with NCC Japanese students and our coordinator.It is famous for Melbourne city.We took a train and tram to go there. It is a big city!And there were many foods,clothes,and souvenirs.Next,we went to “Melbourne central “.It was bigger than any shopping centre in Japan.But many things were too expensive.We walked around there together.
Second,last Wednesday,I helped my host mother’s job.She is a babysitter.So I looked after 2 children.They were so cute!!I had a lunch with them too, and we went to a cafe.It was hard for me to look after children. I understood host mother’s hardship.
Third,last Thursday,I went to the sea.It took about 40 minutes.It was so cold.The view was very beautiful!!
Fourth,last Saturday,I went to the zoo with my host mother,mum’s boyfriend,and my host mother’s step mum. I saw a show where a man showed us how to shear a sheep.It was interesting! I received the wool. I saw koalas for the first time!!!Some koalas were sleeping,other koalas were eating gum leaves. They were so cute! I took many pictures.I was so glad.(Please look at the photos which I took.) We then saw the penguin parade. Many penguins appeared from the sea and crossed the beach to their homes.They were so small.We could see very close. I was so thankful to see so many animals.
Also,I had many experiences. I thank my host family.This week I will go to church to help with a children’s holiday program. I think it will be hard but very good too.
I will do my best everyday.See you again.
