Toride City – Cooking & Kites

Kite making in Toride

Day of activity: July 25th 2015

Today was a lot of fun. I’m bad at taking buses, but I had to. I missed it and I got driven to the meeting point instead. We met at Katarai No Sato. I was happy to see everyone, and we made our daily talk round. Some of the staff told us about a strange guy doing tricks with his diabolo wich they saw, and I laughed a lot. After this, the LOC (Local Organizing Comittee) women showed us a short movie about Toride. It was funny, because the translation didn’t always work out like it should. Then we made our own onigiri and even though we didn’t have enough space, I liked it. Later, we made little flags; some with countries and some with motives. The host families arrived and we ate a lot of tasty food. We began to make self-made kites with drawings. We had monster, pokemon and bird groups. My monster group won. It was a great day and the food was wonderful.
