Farewell

Hi from Wing2!

We’re Natsumi and Natsumu living in room 224. It has been 504 days since we came to Boston and we only have 8 days left. We are excited to see our family and friends in Japan but also we feel sad because we have shared the room for a year and half. We have spent time together for such a long time so it’s kind of weird that we are going to live apart. Anyway, we need to enjoy the rest of our life in Boston! It seems like most students have plans every single day until they leave, especially they are enjoying food. We often run into other Showa students in the city more than usual. 224 girls are foodies and of course we have a plan to eat out for dinner next week! We’re going to our favorite Spanish restaurants. One of good points in Boson is we can enjoy many kinds of food and Boston actually has a lot of good restaurants.

Vacation

こんにちは、Wing2ビジネスデザイン学科の石井と山田です。

今回私たちはTravelについて紹介したいと思います。Showa Boston滞在中にも夏休み、サンクスギビングデイ、冬休み、また週末にも旅行に行くことができます。


vercation1

わたしたちは、夏休み中にフロリダのディズニーワールドに行ってきました。この時期にはすでにハローウインのイベントが始まっていました。宿泊数により、チケットや宿泊台が手ごろになるので、わたしたちは5泊6日しました。申し込みは、旅行代理店でなく、公式サイトのほうが手数料の関係で安く済みました。

vercation2

冬休みには、年越しでニューヨークに行ってきました。わたしは、前期にニューヨークトリップで行ったのですが、忙しすぎて全然見れなかったのでもう一度行くことにしました。

vercation3

カウントダウンには、タイムズスクエアにはいかずにテレビで見ることにしました。とても混んでいて、何時間も立ち見するのは大変です。ゆったり新年を向かい入れることができたのでよかったです。

 

週末にも、ニューヨークであればバスで4時間、また往復30ドルで行くことができます。ボストンもとても良いところですが、せっかくアメリカに来たのであれば、いろいろなところにおとずれてみてはいかがですか。

Coming of Age

Hello!! We’re Wing 9!!

Coming of Age(2)

On January 6th, we celebrated coming of age!! We had a party in one of the oldest hotel in Boston, Omni Parker Hotel. We enjoyed a special meal, especially Boston cream pie. After the meal, everyone including teachers danced and it as very fun!

Coming of Age(1)

1月6日、日本の成人式に出席できない私たちはボストンで最も古いホテルであるオムニパーカーホテルで成人を祝いました。フルコースとボストンクリームパイを堪能し、先生も交えてダンス!楽しい夜を過ごしました。

Traveling to New York

Hi, I’m Rei from Wing2. I had been in New York during this winter vacation. I spent a great time there through Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Spending New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square was top of my dream in my life. I was glad that my dream came true. However, standing for a long time in crowded Time’s Square was harder than I expected. I thought I don’t want to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square again though it was really amazing. It was the most delightful moment in my life here the United States. I hope everyone will have a great year.

Niagara Trip

Hello, we are wing8.

We went to Niagara Falls from October 21 to 23. The first day, we took bus at 4PM. And we took bus for about 8 hours. It’s so tried for us. That day was just sleep in hotel.

The second day, we get up at 6:30AM. And leave at 8AM. For 3 hours, we took bus and the students look like sleepy. But as soon as we saw the Niagara Falls, We wake up! The falls were very powerful, beautiful. But it’s too cold for us to go out. So, we enjoyed shopping. I bought maple syrup and cookie. We took pictures in front of Niagara falls with Wing8.  After that, we took Niagara cruises! We enjoyed both Canada side fall and America side fall. The spray was violent, so we got wet. We were very excited and scream.

In the free time we walk the around Clifton Hill. There was amusement grounds in there. It’s very lively. After free time, we ate dinner at Skylon tower. Skylon tower is 236m high. So, the view was wonderful!! The meal was so delicious! When we go back to our hotel, I felt so sad. The final day, we went to Norman Rockwell museum. Norman Rockwell is artist and he drew traditional American painting. The pictures were lovable. I bought his picture’s post cards in museum shop. After, we went to Lee outlet mall. There are many bland shops so, many students bought a lot. I bought backpack, handbag and clothes. I was so happy!! This trip was so fun. Next travel is New York! I want to enjoy the trip!
