Now I'm in Australia!!

I'm studying abroad from February 4th and now I'm in Australia. I live in Brisbane in QLD and I go to the QUT (Queensland University in Technology). I think Brisbane is very hot and very strong sun because it is summer now. Actually, the temperature is about 35 degrees or so, opposite from Japan. I live in here with the nice host family. My house is very near the city. Also, it is easy to catch a bus so I think it is very convenient and nice place. I go to the school with two buses and I have to translate in the city. Brisbane is also near the Gold Coast, so it is easy to go there. In Australia, the scenery is very beautiful and I feel better. Also, the people is very nice. I like Brisbane very much and I want to stay here more longer!

So, I have to pack my things. When I go to Australia, I'll write about study abroad on my blog again!!

New year's day

On January 1st, I went to the grandmother's house. Also, my cousins, uncle, and aunt went there from Kyoto. I did a part-time job in January 1st, so I could go only dinner's time. Dinner was a Japanese osechi cooking, sushi, and sashimi (raw fish). My grandmother made Osechi and sushi by myself every year. I help her sometimes. It was very delicious and beautiful. During the dinner, we talked together and enjoyed a meal.

Part-time job

During a winter vacation, I did a part-time job. I divided new year's cards in the post office. There were a lot of new year's card in late day in December to early January. I worked about 3 hours to 4 hours. I worked hard because a lot of new year's card, but I enjoyed very much!

I went to Namba to go shopping with my mother. It was about a week ago. Namba is relatively near because I can go only one train from my house. These days were just a Midosuji parade, so there are a lot of people at the Midosuji street and became pedestrian prtcinct. In the parade, there were brass bands (marching bands), stuffed animals character in the human, portable shrine, and so on. I went to the Sogo department store, too. This department store was made recently, so it was very new and beautiful. I also went to the Namba city and etc. If you come to Namba, I recommend you to go to Namba city, Namba parks or Dotonbori because they are very lively town and there are a lot of shops and a lot of fun if you are only walking around or ramble.
