My Oregon Summer

On July the 29th, I flew to Portland on Delta Airways.
Some of my homestay collegues joined me on this flight.

Our homestay family Mr. and Mrs.Miller live in the suburbs of
Portland city.  They have two sons aged nineteen and twenty,
they also have two cars and two dogs.

Their garden provided us with a place to play and enjoy.
We were very surprised to be served breakfast at 6:00a.m.!

During our stay with the Miller family, the five of us were taken to
some places of entertainment and shops. 

We really enjoyed Oregon zoo, Aquatic pool park, Portland amusemnet part,
Toy'R'us and out into the forest to see some poisonous grass and
view Mt.Hood from a bridge. 

One important element of our homestay was to participate in
a one week camp.   This camp provided us with an opportunity
to try our hand at many outdoor activities.

This camp was attended by three-hundred American children
and only twenty Japanese!

We particularly enjoyed the barbecue party and nights spent by the camp fire.

During the day we enjoyed the challenge of wall climbing, archery,
horseback riding, river swimming and meeting and talking with
our new American friends.

At night, most of us spent the time playing video games
until lights out at 10:00p.m.

When I got to know some of my new friends better
I came to know that most of them were rather fat!

I also came to the conclusion that most of them
were not fond of running around and seemed happier just
sitting around and talking to each other!

Well, one of the Japanese boys who is a high school student,
told me all about the famous Oregon Trail that brought many
people to the west coast.

It is my wish to visit Portland for a third time in the future
and one day I would like to work and live there.

At last we flew home on August the 13th, and once again
Oregon was a wonderful and uplifting experience.
