Weekend
Last Saturday my older friend, Arakawa-san, came to Calgary, because he had to gather sample for his thises and wanted to borrow some fossiles from Royal Tyrrell Museam. My host mother drove him from airport. Met him again in Calgary which is far away from Japan. He stayed in my host house. At the time there were two mother's grandchildren. They are really friendly and they got attracted him as soon as met him. He likes kids. So, he looked happy.
Last Sunday, my host family held birthday party convined host mother's and homestay-mate, Uju's. That party would start in the evening. We went to walk around Calgary. At first went to kind of departs, but these were not opend yet. Forgot that these shops are open around noon. Until opening of departs, walk around. Althought waited open shops, didn't buy anything. After that, went to uptown I hadn't been there. Calgary uptown is along the 17 Ave. NW. In the guidbook, there are many restaurant but I felt the avenue was dreary because there are lots of fallen leaves. Found looks good restaurant and entered. There were branch buffet, $12. Chose that and enjoyed eating and talking. Went to princes island park. There is nothing, but he liked the atomosphere there. After taking rest there, went to Kanata shop which has many souvenior of Canada. He bought some smoked salmon and so on. Went back home. 1 or 2 hours after we were back house, had supper which was Taco. I like it. And played cards. I taught about rule of s.y.n, but he couldn't understand completely. It must be difficult. After finished one game, had a time to give presents. Uju got many present from host mother's family. She must have been so happy. And mother reseved our present joyfully. I was so satisfied. Played cards again, I won.
went to bed around 12 because I would leave house to Drumheller at about 7. I was so pleased t that Arakawa-san had a greatly fun time.

Tuseday Sept. 21
New class!!!! I hoped to have went to level up, but I couldn't.
Class room is same as before, and two Korean guys are same class.
At first I saw the student list in my class, I was suprised because there are Korean or Japanese only!!! Too bad.....I regreted my laziness.....But I can't change my class until end of this block. So sad.
Anyway, new classmates and new teachers. it was hard for me to remenber their name.....sorry everyone.
Teacher's is also bad. They must be good teachers in ESL but they don't have enough experiences to teach TOEFL class. I was so disappointed. And feel my class is boring and I have to study hard by myself!!!


After class, went shopping, found good clothes and good shoes in Morborgh Mall which is the nearest my house. Enjoyed.

Today was my hostmother's birthday. So, her son's family suddenly came and celebrated her birthday. Althougt it takes about 1 hour by car from his house to my house, they came here in weekday. She has good sons.

After graduation seremony, I went to go Kimchi House(Korean restrant) with my friend. He asked me to go there with him and his friends.
In that restaurant I met about 10 people. I enjoyed it and had a fun time. Many people thought I am Korean. And I met one Japanese guy whose home town is Niihama in Ehime!!!! I was suprised. He is very good man. Next to that, We went to the pub and drunk. It was really fun time!!

Wednesday Sep.15
After I came home, mother, host mate and I went shopping.
Before I asked Where I can get clothes cheaply, mother answered second-hand store is the best. So, went to the secondhand store.
But I didn't find good clothes, I was disappointed. After that went to Rogers (lental video shop) and Save way (supermarket) in the same area. Mother bought DVD "cold mountain" and another one.
After we were back home, mother, Uju and I watched cold mountain.
The time in that movie is certainly American Civil War. But I don't know any thing about that war. So it was difficalt to understand background of the movie. The story is very good. It is little bit long for me, about 2 and half hours. But I recommend this movie!!
