I have been in New Zealand for 10 months. The time has flown by so fast I can’t believe that I have to go back to Japan in a month. I'm so sad to have to say goodbye to my host family, my friends and New Zealand. When I came to New Zealand, I was always confused because there are a lot of differences between Japan and New Zealand. But now I got used to them.

This month we have a holiday. I went to many places every day. During the holidays, we always have a party. We eat food , sing songs and watch movies. This time I taught my friend how to make sushi.

I went hiking in my outdoor class from the last day of school to the last day of the holidays. This hiking was really hard because it was 4 nights and 5 days. We walked 67 km in 5 days, we were carrying a bag that weighed about 20 kgs. We were brought a tent, food for 5 days, clothes, sleeping bag etc
If there wasn’t a toilet, we did it on the road. When we wanted to take a shower, we went to the river and washed our hair. We drank the river water for 5 days. After we finished my teacher told us we walked over 100 km within 30 hours.
