Summer Training


This last week we had AET summer training. I did not take many pictures because most of our time was spent inside a lecture room doing various activities.

 

On Tuesday we visited a community center to participate in various cultural activities. These included...

making pottery...


chopping wood (for the fire to cook our lunch)...


cooking yakisoba for lunch...

 I can cook yakisoba! Yum...

and enjoying a good meal.


During the afternoon we learned some new Kanji, practiced calligraphy, and carved potatoes with wood chisels.

Look how studious I am...

But my favorite part of summer training was Aaron teaching us a dance that is currently very popular in Japan. Enjoy!
