I left the city by bus in the late afternoon and arrived at the village in the morning. My uncle took me to his house by his jeep. The location of his house is in the deep village near the forest. Finally, after a long journey I met my aunt and my cousin.

After taking a rest for a while, my cousin took me to the farm well to have a bath. I bathed in the open air for the first time. It was strange but fun. It was a hot day. I enjoyed the cold water very much. Then we went to the mango orchard. There I plucked mangoes with my own hands. After that we took lunch. It was a very simple meal of rice, fish, bean cake and vegetables but it was very delicious. In the afternoon, I and my cousin visited the farm. My uncle was watering the crops. I helped him by milking the cow. It was the first time in my life I do it so it was very awkward at first, but then my cousin taught me to do it. It was fun actually.

My wonderful trip

Last week, my brother and I went to Tokyo for a vacation. I did the web surfing before having a trip there. I choose to take Tokyo public transportation since many people said that Tokyo had the best transportation called MRT (Mass Rapid Transport).

The MRT was known as a commuter underground, so a large number of people transferred to go to their work place every day. We took the MRT boarded at Chiba station. When the train moved, we felt like we were in a jet. It was remarkably fast because the route was underground. We could see nothing except the darkness on both sides.

In the commuter, people were not allowed to bring any food and beverages. The regulation was aimed to keep the cleanliness of the commuter’s area. We amazed by how people obeyed the provided rule, although there was no penalty mentioned in the regulation.

On the arrival at Ariake station, we walked down around the station. Our ride was really comfortable and nice. I dreamt of living here with my family. It was really great and comfortable trip.
