Day 3 in Hakuba
Day 3 in Hakuba was really fun!! In the morning after breakfast, we took a walk to the Aoki Lake, and when we arrived there we did team activities. The first one we did was one where you had to stand on a stick, and switch over people with out falling of the stick.Also the same except on a mat, and we had to fold the mat with the people on the mat. The next one was called helium stick, where there was a stick, and you had to place both of your pointing fingers under the stick with everyone else in the group, and go up and down without the stick falling. Then we had to cross lava (pretend) and there was a magic helmet which you could wear to cross the lava, but you had to carry someone, or get carried by someone. I carried Leticia, but in the end Leticia sacrificed her self for us. Then we had a piece of sting, and had to make a knot in it, with someone else using your body. After we finished the activities we played some games like duck duck goose, then If you’re (wearing black, etc) then ameba tag (like chain tag) then ebi, kani, tako ( shrimp, crab, octopus.) The way you play If you’re is that 2 people are it and shout “If you’re wearing black” for example. If you are wearing black, you run to the other side. The way you play ebi, kani, tako, is that there is one it and the go 1, 2, 3, and on 3 they do a move, ebi, kani, or tako. If you’re doing the same move as him/her your also it. For lunch we had a BBQ that we got to make ourselves! I was with Yuki, and Mitea. Most of the groups had 4 people but we only had 3 so there was a lot of food for us!!! After we ate we went river cleaning, which was nothing ourselves to this morning’s team activities. We really had to work together to go past the current. We made a chain, by holding hands, and I held hands with Sophie and Axel. I couldn’t believe I made it. I was a risk-taker, by going the hard way instead of staying in the back. We stopped by a convenience store, where I bought C.C Lemon and a snicker bar for tomorrow’s hiking. Then we walked to a foot bath, and finally walked back to the hotel. After dinner we walked to the area we were going to go hot air ballooning. I went in with Kate, Sophie, May, Leticia, and Mia. I was having a good time in it until I felt something hot on my neck. THe hot air balloon guys was talking about the oil dripping. OIL DRIPPING??? We all started shouting, “The oil’s leaking!! We’re gonna die!!!” At least we made it to the ground and made it. I went to bed after watching some TV, and talking with my group.
