Today, I watched my host sister’s basketball game with my host mother and my host friend. My host sister was very good at basketball.
Next, I went shopping with my host mother and my host sister and my host friend. The vegetables sold there were bigger than Japanese ones. My host friend and I enjoyed looking around the store.
After coming back home, I went to a temple with my host family, and I ate some cakes and drank Chai tea. The temple was very beautiful and mysterious. I felt very calm there.

I climbed Mr. Coolum with Shamala’s grandson. He was a shy boy. He was good at climbing the mountain so he led us to the top of the mountain easily. I am looking forward to spending more time with him!!

In the morning, I played card games with my host mother. It was so fun. At noon, we went to church which was the first time in my life. It was very precious experience for me. In the afternoon, I went to the beach with my host mother and her dog to see the sunset. I took many pictures of the sunset because it was very beautiful. I was glad to see the sunset. I want to see it again someday.

Today we went to beach. It was very cold and the waves were very high. When we jumped into the sea, the water was so cold. But, we got used to it slowly. Then we played in the waves. I learned how to catch the waves from my host family. We were able to get the waves with our back. If we caught the waves with our stomach, it hurt. We learned one more thing. If the waves are very high, we can dive under them. If we swim over the waves, we will be swallowed by them. We played in the sea safely. We had a lot of fun.
After that, we played beach volleyball. I played with my host family and the other families. The host fathers were very good at it, and they could throw the ball very high. We couldn’t get their balls. It was also fun.
When we got in the car, we fell asleep. We were very tired.
I want to play in the sea with my host family again. Next time, I would like to surf with them.

Today, I went to beach with my host family. We went by car and arrived at the beach at about 10:00. I entered the sea with N and my host sisters, Darcy and Bronte. We swam and played in the big waves. Then we played beach volleyball. It was fun.
Next, we went to have a barbecue. There were a lot of Hiroo Gakuen students there. I ate lunch with my host family. Then, because I was wearing my casual clothes, I entered the sea only up to my knees. I also had friends there, so it was a lot of fun.
After going back home, I watched Harry Potter with N and my host sister over dinner. I like Harry Potter, so I was very happy.
Today was a busy but great day.
