Field Studies day 5 FINAL DAY

This morning no one woke up that early but when we did wake up we were so hungry. That day I sat in a place that I never had before it was in a place that I had a view of all the nature. I saw what mother nature had created and I believed that she spent a long time on Hokkaido. After breakfast we all went back too our rooms and started to clean our rooms. Sadly, because of what happend the night before we had the special cleaning duty. Now what this was, was one of us (I) had to go to the front desk and get new garbage bags. Then three of the people (Pascal, Henning, and Claude) sorted the trash, and the rest of the people (Harri, Rohan, James, Axel and Daniel) went from room to room collecting trash until Pascal, Henning and Claude were done sorting the garbage. Soon after we all were packed and ready to go and went to the bus and gave our bags to the bus driver while we went on the bus, this time I sat on the way to the stop I sat next to Daniella and on the to the airport after the stop I sat next to Daniella. At the airport after the massive line we had to wait in, Eva and my self went to Starbucks and got a drink and a scone for my self. How ever on the flight it would turn out that Eva, Jennifer and Kate would take it because they kept annoying me about it. This time on the flight I sat next to Katie and no one to my left because I had aisle seat.

Field Studies day 4

Today once again we all woke up early because once again we were very hungry. We all wanted to just get out and fun on the our last day of activities. We all went back to our rooms and got all our things in our bags for what we needed I think all we wanted is to skip the bus ride and wet suit putting on and just get into white water rafting. I think we had the coolest instructor because first of all we didn’t even have to carry the raft he just ran down with it, he had the most epic accent. Best of all every dreadlock he had, he had an amazing story to tell with it (by the way he told the stories). So there were three non rocky areas on the boat ride, and on all those three areas that were me jumping off the boat. On the first part I was the only one (from my boat) that did it, on the second one there was I think was one or two that did and on the last one there was every that did. On the way to the restaurant for our soba lunch, we were all raving about the raft and how much fun it was. After the amazing lunch Rishi and I went to get an ice-cream because we were still a bit peckish. We were both surprised about the little corn flakes at the bottom. We all got back on the bus and it looked a bit weird because we recognized most of the building and hills we went past. We stopped and got off where we started, I thought we were going back too NAC. It turns out I was the only one that didn’t know about the bike ride trip. So we all got on our bikes and went. We went past mud, amazing views and so much more. I wondered is all this going to be taken away from us because of global warming all this? We went back to NAC by bus and got back before the other group. We had an amazing buffet that night, and watched a movie. We watched the movie Eragon after that we had a later curfue because we didn’t have to get up as early.

Field Studies Day 2

This morning every one woke up early it was a surprise that everyone could stand up. Rishi was the one that woke me and Axel up, all we heard from him was “POTATO!” Over and over and over it was so annoying. So since I couldn’t go back to sleep I got up and told him to be quiet before he wakes every one else up. I thought I might as well hang around him for the rest of the morning since no one else is awake. So all we did was sit where we had our dinner the night before and just talked. After a while other people started up wake up slowly and after  a while teachers woke up. Just before breakfast me and some other people went up the mountain. We didn’t know we were not supposed to go up the mountain. We just sat there looking at the view. It was beautiful though. So after about 10 minutes we started to go down. Just before we got to the stares we saw one of the teachers heading up. We knew then we should have asked for permission. After breakfast we got on the bus and went to HIS to meet an old teacher, Mr. Reynolds, and gave us some lunch. Soon after we went to a near by flower and tourist high school and we made these little decorations. Then we went to a farm and took down the green houses. Sadly some people were breaking her fruits and vegetables. Then we got our bags from NAC and got our bags. Took them straight to the hotel.

Field studies Day 1

Today is the first day of field studies. We all thought we had to make the most of it because it was the last field studies of Middle school. So we all met at the airport because we were going too Niseko in Hokkaido. After we landed we had a two hour bus ride. On the way to the first stop I sat next to Rishi, and we played truth or dare with: Daniella, Eva, Rishi and myself. When we got too the first stop I ran straight out and got food. On the way back Daniella got to my seat before me so I had to sit with Eva. We went to NAC. We dropped off our bags and had a nice walk. The most mere able part of that walk was this one bridge and we all went commando style but failed. We walked in the ENVIRONMENT (my area of interaction). Most of the time I walked in with Axel, however I also walked with Claude, Pascal, Harri and Henning. When we got to the camp site it was absolutely freezing! When we divided into two groups of choice, we could have chosen camp set up and/or cooking. I decided to work with Pascal on camp set up. It didn’t takes us that long however when we were done we just decided to sit by a warm fire. That night we had curry. It was delicious, and luckily the NAC staff members gave us rice so it was perfect! We got a sleeping bag and ran to a tent with our friends. I was in the same tent as: Claude, Axel, Kai, Henning, Harri and Jake.

Going away

This is the fifth and final day.

When I woke up I went to my suitcase and started to pack it took a while but in the end I just dicided to justput all my stuff in there at once and close it quickly so it does not fall out of my suit case. I was finished just in time to put my bag on the bus. The teachers said if you dont put bags on the bus you get no breakfast. Once I put my bag on the bus I went strait to the dinning room with the my starving stomach waiting for amazing food like every morning. Once I we all had breakfast we split back into group A and group B. Then since I was in group A I went rock climbing with the rest of 6A and some of 6C ( thosse are the classes ).

The rock climbing walls were so fun that I wanted to do it all again.

The bus ride was 6 hours. It was long but not as long as the bus ride on the way to Hakuba. When we got back to school we had to wait for our parents before we went to school.

I`m tired

On the 4th day I found out that I`m going to climb a mountain. I was so scared at first because I would have had to use all that energy for three hours but before the hike one of the leaders, James, said “instead of bendig your legs all the way up the mountain try and keep your legs straighter.” So you would have energy. At the top we had an excelent lunch. Curry white rice and excelent spring rolls.

Just started

I had just woke up. And all the people in our tent were all squished because we had the smallest tent. But I was the 3rd to wake up so me Thomas and Meta sat in the tent and played our ipods quietly. That was being a thinker. After about an hour or so we got permission to leave our tents. When I got out of my tent I went to my suitcase and put a bunch of layers on because it was freezing. Not to long after I went to the dock to look at the awesome lake.That lake was the lake I went canoeing in. Not to long after break fast we went mountain biking. It was so fun that I kept asking to go down hill. After we went mountain biking we had lunch. We had burritos. And boy were they good. The second activity was canoeing. My partner was Axcel. We were they only people to be in a two. Once it was all over we went back to the hotel that we checked in to after breakfast.

Were here

To day we had arrived at Hakuba. And the bus ride was so long that we had to make more than 2 stops. It was 6 hours long. It was so long. However it was nice to be able to put my feet up because there was no one sitting next to me. Once we got there we put our bags down and  made our tents.
