A County Fair Day

We went to a county fair yesterday. It was long way. I was surprised that we don’t need pay money to ride on bus. In a county fair, there were many animals. For example, horses, cows, seeps, rabitts,and pigs!!!
I have been loved pigs since I was a child. So I wanted to ride a pig, but real pigs were scary more than I expected. So I quitted to ride a pig, and I rode an attraction.

Thank you for beautiful two weeks.

Mount Vernon

On Aug13, 2006
We went to Mt.Vernon. Geo.Washington’s house is there, as well as many as many small buildings, farms and gardens. There seems to be a town.
We call it "Mt”, but it is a high hill. We went up it, and we found George Washington’s tomb. I was surprised that the tomb was open to the public.
Then we visited to George’s house. It was too big!!! I could imagine that he and his wife lived there.
The view from garden is very very very beautiful!!! We lay on the grass, and watched the blue sky. I didn’t want to leave there. I wished I can go to there once a week.

We have only 2 days. I don’t want to go back to Japan……

Education Day

We have a panel discussion about education. Five people who were going to Maryland University visited, and talked about American university and American student life. I could know about detail of Maryland University.
Paul is the funniest man in five. After discussed, we walked around campus with Paul and Tim. I was exited. I surprised that the pool is too big!!! I want to swim there

On Wednesday the weather was fine.
After classes, Nina took us to the Maryland Dairy. This shop has original ice creams. I love ice cream!! We ate sandwiches in a garden, and ate ice cream. They were very delicious!! I want to go there again.

After lunch, we went to China town. I think that it is strange that there is KANJI in America. We could find items to photograph easily. Dumplings have good taste.
After that, we went to Adams-Morgan. This town became my favorite town because there are many pretty buildings like a castle. We took a rest in café. This café has many sofas and lamps. So I think that it is like a home. I could talk with Kevin about many things there. It was very important time for me. Speaking English correctly is difficult, but if we talk with eye contact, we can communicate with everybody!!

Yesterday we discussed about family. I am surprised that divorce is a normal action in America. Almost of Japanese think that divorce is bad.

Then I enjoyed shopping very much. I like shopping. Yesterday, I bought two things. One is a book of Sponge Bob. Do you know Sponge Bob? He is a very cute character of animation. I am watching him every morning in America, so I became fan of him. I want many other things of Sponge Bob.
The other is a hand soap. It has good smell. Because I live by myself, I will put it on the washstand.

Yesterday I went to the Washington post. I ‘m very interested in media, because I want to work for a broadcast company in future. So I enjoyed there. There were many workers in an office. Maybe they created newspapers for tomorrow. I think that I want to buy it tomorrow!!

In this week end, we went to Washington D.C. by metro.
On Saturday, we walked for a long time. First, we went to The Vietnam War’s memorial. There is a long wall with the name of the war dead.
Second we went to The Lincoln memorial. We associate the name of Lincoln with slavery. We go to inside, and we found the very big Lincoln’s statue. We took many pictures there.
Third, we went to world war 2 memorial.This is also a beautiful place!!
Forth we went to the Washington memorial. This building is a little shorter than the Tokyo tower. However the view from top was wonderful!! It is very different from view of Tokyo because there is a lot of nature in Washington D.C. This place became one of my favorite places.

I was excited, but very tired. So I slept early.I’m looking forward next weekend.
